Dhaka International Trade Fair is one of the biggest festivals in Dhaka city it is held just beside Bangabandhu Conference Hall every year in January and this year is no different. The event mostly consists of products of Bangladeshi companies followed by many foreign companies.

This year only 4 bikes companies attended the fair which was a bit of a shock as this one month festival does attracts a huge amount of crowds and seeing only 4 bike companies was a real shame. Given the fact that there were only 4 companies it was nice to see that all of them offered some exclusive discount offer for people who will booked or buy the bikes from the fair.

MAHINDRA TWO WHEELERS

Probably the best looking stall in the whole fair (automobiles). They are offering huge discount on their bikes. Mahindra is starting to to have more bikes in the corporate sections. In the past they used to only market scooter but now they have bought some bikes too.

One of the bike that is a bit interesting in this fair is Mahindra Arro, the bike is a bit old fashioned and are mainly targeted in rural area but it’s design is very modern indeed. Their core model which they displayed on the fair was Mahindra CENTURO which has disc brake in the front & tubeless tyres While Centuro NXT don’t have any front disc brake.

The bike features build in security systems like an inbuilt engine immobilizer that locks the engine and triggers a loud alarm when the wrong key is used, one-of-a-kind Find-Me Lamps to remotely locate the bike even in crowded or dark parking lots. Lamps that light-up your path for some time after you’ve switched off the ignition, a digital dashboard that alerts you when you are travelling in the economy mode and when your bike is due for servicing.

They are also offering two scooters for sale during the whole fair among which Gusto an 110cc scooter has grab the attention of many scooter fans in the market these days. With every bike or scooter Mahindra are offering 5 years engine warranty. One of the striking thing in their pavilion was that they bought a 300cc Mahindra Mojo, but as we have engine displacement restriction in Bangladesh, sadly we won’t get to buy that bike.

One of the new comer in the motorcycle industry is Max Motors who in a very short time became very popular among the young generations with their models Motrac & Italjet.

motrac bikes in bangladesh

A small bike which to be honest seems like it was build for boys rather than for men.  The bike is equipped with a 125cc engine which pumps up little over 9 BHP. The handle of the bike is upright but the sitting position is too low.  They also have an electric version of the pocket bike which cost very very less to run and are very popular among the office goers who need to commute 20-30 km a day from home to office.

They say that scooters are for ladies but straight away when you see it you will get the feeling that this scooter was probably made for men. It is one of the most beautiful and aggressive looking thing I have seen in a long time. Italjet moto is an Italian scooter company & they design some beautiful looking scooter. From the front anyone will say that the scooter looks more like it was designed in the Ducati factory.

Models ORIGINAL PRICE DISCOUNT IN FAIR
Motrac M2 (Electric) 1,05,000    5000
Motrac M3 ( Fuel) 1,85,000 10,000

jamuna automobiles

JAMUNA AUTOMOBILES LTD

Jamuna has been around for quite a while with very little success. Recently they launched a brand new bike name as Evo 150R, but few were seen on the road. They are giving away some discount from 5-7 % on different models. They are having Ananta Jolil as their brand ambassador and currently their cruiser bike Fabio is the best seller in the market. They are providing 5 years or 70,000 km warranty with each bike.

To be honest it was very disappointing for me as I thought that many companies would have turn up to display their bikes in the trade fair, Walton made an pavilion but didn’t displayed any bikes on them, Runner Automobiles too weren’t in the fair, neither was Bajaj, who could have used this trade fair to promote their upcoming Bajaj Pulsar AS150, which will be launch on 18th of this month. This could have been a good opportunity for the companies to come and display their bikes to a fair which is one of the biggest in Dhaka city.

About Wasif Anowar

To me biking is freeing your SOUL which can FLY with the wind. Bike riding is my PASSION & Touring is my HOBBY. The main goal is to update the bikers of Bangladesh with the latest news and reviews of motorcycles in Bangladesh. One of the craziest things I ever did was riding 1150 km for 24 hours; it was just to replicate how it feels to go though Lemans 24 hrs.
