The 125 C.C bike will be made available initially in the Eastern part of India particularly in West Bengal before being launched nationally. Being a new entrant in the highly competitive Indian two wheeler sector, it has its work cut out against stong competitors like Hero Honda, Honda, Bajaj, TVS and Yamaha.


Being a new two wheeler manufacturer, it will have to prove itself in the quality department. Moreover the introductory price of Rs.39,000 (Ex-Showroom, probably for West Bengal) though is competitive it isn't much less than its competitors.

Price of other 125 C.C models:

Bajaj Discover DTSi: Rs.42,500 (Ex-Showroom, New Delhi)
TVS Victor GLX: Rs.43,700 (Ex-Showroom, Kolkata)


So any takers for the Xpression from Global Auto..??

For 9,500 more the Bejaj Discover seems much more ideal. Not to mention the quality can be questioned with this chinese make.
