At a press conference yesterday, Honda officially announced their new business plan for the year 2014-15 which has been christened – RETAIN.EXPAND.CREATE! While we will talk about that in some other article, let us give you the biggest news from the event.
Mr Keita Muramatsu, President and CEO of Honda India announced that they will launch a ‘Revolutionary‘ model in India this financial year and here are more details which he shared.
- It will be showcased at the Auto Expo in 2016.
- This model will create a new segment in Indian industry.
This is all what he revealed and left everyone inquisitive about the product. He did not even specify if it will be a scooter or a motorcycle but let us hope it is NOT a scooter!
Note: The CX-01 pictured here is for representational purpose only. We have no clue on what is coming!
Among the prominent upcoming Honda products we know at the moment, they have the entry level sub 40,000 motorcycle, four-cylinder CBR650F and tons of new scooters. They are NOT referring to the CBR650F since they have already showcased it to us at the 2014 Auto Expo and it is coming sooner.
So, is Honda planning something real different from what we currently have in the market? This takes us to the CX-01 Concept they showcased at the Auto Expo 14. So are they hinting at the production version of this cross motorcycle? Let more details sneak in before we can even make conjectures.
