The answer is simple YES! but why ?
First of all, we want exclusive bikes to come in Bangladesh, yes I know that they will be expensive but I want them to come. Second of all, if people can buy recondition cars like Allion & Premio many of which are worth around 32-35 lac (2016 models) then why will we be deprived bikers shouldn’t get the chance to ride exclusive bikes. + I can say that although the number of 250cc customer will be less but so be it.
I honestly want that in this year Bangladeshi government will give permission for 250cc bikes in but at the same time they need to solve the following issues:
- Import tax needed be lower, currently CBU bikes has a tax of 153 % in that case 250cc sports bike might cost around 7.5-8 lac!
- It should be made mandatory that only those bikers who have 3-5 years licence experience only they can buy bikes over 200 cc.
- Government should be more aggressive for bikers who don’t have proper driving licence & don’t wear helmet.
- Government need to make sure that the petrol pump should provide good quality fuels for the bikers.
There are many more issues which needed to be corrected but if things turn out to be true then I would love to own a Honda CBR250RR or a Kawasaki Z250!
