Views of Mr. Shrikant Akolkar (Research Analyst - Auto, Angel Broking):
"Bajaj Auto has been waiting for long to launch its quadricycle which has been delayed due to the regulatory hurdles. The company already has a capacity of about 25,000 quadricycles and it currently exports its quadricycles to several countries. While this is sentiment booster news, it needs to be seen whether Bajaj's quadricycle is BS-IV compliant as this product has been developed several years earlier while BSIV norms kicked in this year.
In case of a positive regulatory ruling and at a 50% capacity sales in India, Bajaj can generate <1% of its revenue from this product so we don't believe that besides minor improving in the sentiment, there is not enough thrust in this to see a rally in the stock."
