Honda to Launch a 100cc Bike in India

Commuter segment is what every single two wheeler manufacturing company is targeting for. The reason is the potentiality out here and above all, to increase the market share of the company this is the only solution that the company will be left with at the end of the day.

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has also planned for one such commuter bike with  a displacement of 100 cc. We’ve reported about it in BikeAdvice sometime back as soon as the  news was out. But the time of launch and price was undisclosed at that point of time.

Now, the company has revealed the truth that the 100 cc bike will be launched next financial  year and the price of the bike will be around INR 45,000. The bike will be showcased in the Delhi  Auto Expo which will happen on the January of next year.

“We will showcase a 100 cc bike at the Auto Expo in January and launch it next fiscal,” HMSI  VP-Sales and Marketing, Mr N. K. Rattan told Business Line.

Apart from this bike, HMSI is also planning to launch a scooter by the end of this fiscal year.  Mr Rattan said that the scooter will be 100 per cent localised, though product development will take place in Japan. This reveals the fact that this scooter will be one which will ideally suit the Indian market and the since the company is already a dominant player in the scooter segment, this will anyways be a product worth waiting for.

Besides introducing new products to its product line-up, the company is also ramping up its dealership network to strengthen its position and increase its market share in the sub continent. At present, it has 1,220 outlets and plans to add another 300 by next fiscal.
