- Honda sells 21,000 two-wheelers since reopening
- 2.5 lakh two-wheelers service
- More showrooms likely to be opened
Honda has announced that it has sold more than 21,000 units of motorcycles and scooters in India since it re-opened its retail outlets.
According to the company, over 40 per cent of its dealerships along with 30 per cent of total touchpoints have re-opened post lockdown relaxation. These showrooms and touchpoints are adhering to social distancing and sanitizing guidelines issued by the Government of India.
Other than sales, the Japanese firm has managed to service more than 2.5 lakh two-wheelers as well. This comes as a good news for the dealers who had to shut their service centers for than a month. Through service, Honda’s dealers will be able to make some money and cut some of their losses.
The current lockdown ends on 17 May, after which the government is likely to extend the lockdown at COVID-19 hotspot cities, but will also relax the ruling at cities that are not red zone. So when that happens, expect more Honda showrooms to return back to business.
