exceptional technical assistance to the 2-wheeler automotive aftermarket chain
segment in the country.
The 2-wheeler aftermarket
automotive chain segment is thriving in India and has witnessed an exponential
growth. It is close to Rs. 700-800 crore in size and is growing at the rate of
10-15%. The newly launched motorcycle chain from Makino RK will provide the
2-wheeler automobile companies the desired mileage and best-in-class service.

understanding the need and demand in the market. The world’s top 5 motor
champion companies use RK’s motorcycle chains offering the most seamless and
uncompromising performance. With the newly launched motorcycle chain, Makino RK
reinforces its sheer conviction, bringing forth the best to offer to the
2-wheeler automobile aftermarket sector.”
Makino RK will offer standard

performance and to minimise elongation during the life of the chain. Apart from
this, the company will also provide excellent quality and cost performance for
light duty motorcycle application.
Lee Thian Chai, Managing
Director, RK South Asia said, “The 2-wheeler automobile segment has immense
scope in India and is set to witness a boom from 19.9 million in FY17 to close
to 34 million by FY20. Hence, it fairly makes sense to leverage the best out of
this sector and apply our incomparable technological expertise to offer world
class quality to our clients here. I am confident that the newly launched
motorcycle chain will not only be valuable to the 2-wheeler automobile
companies but will also be competitive in nature as it promises unparalleled
biking experience in the Indian market.”
