Leisure bike maker, Firefox on Tuesday said it will unveil its latest model ‘Kompac’ during the Delhi Auto Expo next month.

The company will also be the official transport provider for the Expo’s officer on duty, a senior official said.

“Kompac is being introduced for a specific niche segment of bikers who love to go off-road and explore the adventure of mountains but find difficult to carry it,” Firefox Bikes Managing Director Shiv Inder Singh said.

The 26-inches foldable new bike Kompac will come at a price of Rs. 8,840.

Firefox will also be displaying its entire range during the Expo.

“In tandem with the Auto Expo 2010 eco-friendly theme, Firefox will display its extensive collection of bikes and cycling accessories this year to woo budding cyclists,” Mr. Singh said.

He further added, “Firefox would be the official transport for the officer on duty at the Expo.”

The company had earlier announced plans to launch 15 new models by March 2010, besides opening 20 new outlets across the country, in addition to 50 at present.

Firefox Bikes has sold over 45,000 units since 2005. It currently sells 40 models and is also the sole distributor of U.S.-based Trek Bikes in India.
