9 December 2011

Sao Paulo, Brazil, 9 Dec – Chinese-Japanese partnership Haojue Suzuki Motorcycle (Changzhou) Co. Plans to launch a new model of 125 cubic centimetre motorcycle on the Brazilian market, Henry L. F. Su the company’s export sales director said.

“We are interested in placing this new model of the Haojue brand on the Brazilian market but that will depend on Dafra Motos,” he said.

The Chinese brand already sells the “Smart” scooter in Brazil via its partnership with Dafra Motos and a new model – the Riva 150 – is due to start being sold in the second half of this month.

Haojue Suzuki Motorcycle (Changzhou) Co. Is a partnership set up in 2007 between Chinese group Jiangmen Dachangjiang Group Co. And Japan’s Suzuki Motor Corporation, which in September 2002 had already set up the Suzuki Motor R&D China Co.

Dafra Motos is a Brazilian company set up in 2008 by the Itavema group, the large automotive reseller in Latin America, which has a factory in the Manaus Industrial Hub where it builds its own motorcycles. (macauhub)
