During 1990s, to own a vehicle was a matter of prestige. In those days, owning a scooter or motorcycle was also a big deal. On top of that, those who owned cars were considered among the elite class.
Let’s go back to the 1990s and refresh our memories about vehicles that ruled the Indian roads during that time.

What Yamaha RX 100 was for young boys, Kinetic Honda was for young girls during 1990s. It was Kinetic Honda that familiarised Indians to gearless scooters.
