Rancon Motorbikes Ltd brought a new superbike in their stable for display, it is the Suzuki GSX-R1000. This bike was supposed to be parked at the pavilion of Dhaka Bike Show 2020 but sadly due to the Coronavirus pandemic that show has been postponed till mid-August 2020.
Rancon Motorbikes Ltd is no stranger to bringing superbikes in Bangladesh, if we remember a few years back they brought Suzuki Hayabusa in Bangladesh, then last year they showcased Suzuki Intruder 1800 in the Dhaka Bike Show 2019.
