Honda Motorcycles has been a known name in the Indian two-wheeler industry, since the 80s, when they first partnered with Hero to build motorcycles and then with Kinetic engineering to build mopeds. After their three-decade long partnership with Hero was called off in 2010, Honda has gone from strength to strength capturing Hero’s share in the rural market and at the same time keeping abreast with Bajaj and other Japanese manufacturers in the urban and the premium motorcycle market.
Honda’s pavilion will follow a theme at the Auto Expo that will portray “Technology meets Emotion”. The company wants to deliver a message to the masses that Honda not only creates new technology but more importantly put its heart and soul to surprise the customers worldwide. The Japanese manufacturer will display seven products from its line-up which also include the global showcases.
The Moto GP spec Honda RC213V will be up for display at their stall to celebrate the “Triple Crown Championship” at 2013 Moto GP season. To the delight of fans and enthusiasts, the latest upgrade of the legendary Goldwing, also called as the ‘King of Motorcycles’, will be exhibited. This motorcycle is equipped with many features, including an airbag system, music player, navigation etc. and even has a reverse gear.
One of the most awaited products by the Indian riding enthusiasts is the Honda CBR650F and the CBR500 series. The 650cc motorcycle has been designed for touring as well as sports riding and should be a very practical machine for the Indian roads. The CBR 500R, considered to be an excellent entry- level sports bike globally, will also be brought to the event. The bike should appeal to the experienced riders looking for a value for money option instead of larger sports bikes that cannot be really stretched to their potential on the unforgiving Indian roads.
Honda PCX 125, Europe’s much loved contemporary styled scooter, will join these products in Honda’s line-up. This two-wheeler is outfitted with smart navigation, theft proof system, smart engine, idling stop and many other features. Honda will unveil a new design concept model along with the debut of a new scooter at the exhibition.
We would also be happily surprised if we could have a look at the CBR300R that has been unveiled globally to compete with the Ninja 300R and the Suzuki Inazuma 250 at the price tag. Stay tuned to our website as we bring to you live action, as it unfolds!
