Atlas Honda on Tuesday jacked up prices of its motorcycles by up to Rs30,000, driven by significant depreciation of Pakistan rupee, import restrictions and spike in cost of production of automobiles.

Motorcycle dealers told Business Recorder that the company had sent the notification of revised rates.

The new prices will come into effect from February 1, 2023.

Following the hike, the price of Pakistan’s most prominent two-wheeler, CD70, rose by Rs7,400 to Rs128,900.

However, a dealer told Business Recorder that bikes were selling above the company specified prices. For instance, the CD70 is being sold for as much as Rs132,000, he said.

“Moreover, own-money of Rs20,000 is being demanded for motorcycles that have a higher engine capacity,” another market source said.

The rate of Honda CD70 Dream has been jacked up by Rs8,000, taking the revised price to Rs137,900. Atlas Honda’s Pridor variant is now available for Rs170,900 following an upward price revision of Rs9,000. The rate of CG125 surged by Rs9,000 to Rs194,900.

After an increase of Rs11,400, the new price of CG125S is Rs230,900. The rate of CB125F has risen from Rs219,500 to Rs305,900. The price of CB150F and CB150F (Silver) have been hiked by Rs30,000 and they are available for Rs383,900 and Rs387,900 respectively.

Earlier, Pak Suzuki also hiked the rates of its two-wheelers with the increase going as high as Rs25,000. The new rates will be effective from February 1.

Speaking to Business Recorder, Association of Pakistan Motorcycle Assemblers (APMA) Chairman Sabir Sheikh said the recent depreciation of rupee has been the reason behind sharp hike in motorcycle prices.

He added that the cost of production for the automobile sector has swelled significantly.

“Moreover, banks aren’t opening the letters of credit (LCs) which is hindering the import of auto parts and as a result, there is a general shortage of components in the market.”

Another source in the industry stated that automobile components and raw material are selling at very high prices in the market because stocks have depleted amid import restrictions.

In December, Yamaha notified an increase in bike prices by up to Rs13,500. According to a notification sent to the bike dealers, the new rates became effective from January 4, 2023.

Sheikh informed that several other local manufacturers have also jacked up the rates of the two-wheelers.

“Many small manufacturers have shut down their operations down due to non-availability of parts and falling demand amid rising cost of production,” he said. “The low-end motorcycle segment has been the most affected since it is highly price sensitive. Many motorcycle buyers are now purchasing bikes on installments as they are unable to purchase on spot due to persistent rise in rates.”

Motorcycles and rickshaws must go. Buses and the cars from the rickshaw buyback program are required. The steering wheel for the car and the new buses that we’ll be assembling or manufacturing should be on the left. The right side steering wheel has isolated us from Central Asia, West Asia and Europe. We do not wish to impose further sanctions on ourselves by restricting ourselves to cricket, Bollywood and cars with right side steering wheels even when no one drives to the east of Punjab and Sind. Nor do we play cricket with them and most of their movies are either ripoffs of our comedy and sometimes our dramas. Nowadays, they’re entirely based on the lives of Pakistani CITIZENS. I don’t understand the caps but I used it anyway.
