Bajaj Auto’s international focus will be further bolstered with the opening of two vehicle design centers in Europe and Thailand followed by an assembly plant in Brazil.

The Pune-based, India’s third largest two-wheeler maker, will set up its first design centre outside of India in Bangkok followed by one in Europe, a top company official said on July 22.

Addressing shareholders at the 13th annual general meeting (AGM) Rajiv Bajaj, managing director, Bajaj Auto said, “There is no two-wheeler technology that is not in our possession. Our own R&D (research and development) team is 1,200 strong and is leading the way. We are about to open our first design center in Bangkok and very soon we will follow up with one in Europe”.

India has been the breeding ground for most of Bajaj’s R&D work since its inception. This is with the exception of some of the work happening in Austria, which is home to Bajaj Auto’s partners KTM and Triumph Motorcycles based in the United Kingdom in collaborative projects.
