Hyderabad is one of the most popular city in the country which is known for popular sightseeing, film city, and traffic. Whether it is a city or a village, two-wheeler is one of the most popular mode of transport in the country. Like many other cities and states where traffic is one of the main problem in metropolitan and cosmopolitan cities, Andhra Pradesh is no different.

    Andhra Pradesh is one of the states where the sales of two-wheelers has increased steadily and has proved to be real game changer for many bike manufacturers.
