Local Cycles

BMP motorcycles, which can travel up to 40km on one liter of fuel were introduced by Balaaji Manufacturing PLC, which is located in Legetafo, on May 25. The BMP Tornado-250, BMP Volt 250 and BMP Ranger 200 are all assembled here. Workneh Delelegn, Director General of the Metal Industry Development Institute (MIDI) who attended the rollout event said that the government is happy to see a company making products locally. Vikas Aggarwal, director of Balaaji says motorcycles have an advantage in highly congested areas because they can turn easily and get through traffic quickly. They are also an affordable transportation option.
