Union Bank of India has decided to e-auction around 43 bikes along with the manufacturing plant of DSK Benelli and DSK Hyosung that are under the jurisdiction of the bank.
The story started with the partnership of Italian company Benelli, South Korean conglomerate Hyosung and the Indian company DSK Motowheels. The partnership started back in October 2014. But the Indian business conglomerate DSK Motowheels got bankrupted due to its real estate entity. This bankruptcy marked the end of its partnership with Hyosung and Benelli.
It was Mahavir Group that stepped into the shoes of DSK Benelli, and Kinetic MotoRoyale took over the ownership of DSK Hyosung. Mahavir Group made a few changes like shifting the headquarters from Pune to Hyderabad.
