When the two-wheeler giant's joint venture partner Honda moved out, she faced a huge challenge leading Kinetic through the transition and facing a market where scooters were no longer trendy. But Motwani pulled it off by moving into the motorcycle business and introducing stylish new scooters that appealed to the younger generation.

And the corporate world has facilitated this young Turk with several honours, like the award for excellent performance as the woman CEO from the Institute of Marketing and Management (2003) and the Global Leader of Tomorrow from the World Economic Forum (2002). Guess business just runs in her blood!
