Honda Activa electric launch timeline

Another interesting update about the Honda Activa is that its electric version will mostly be launched early next year, as per the statement by one of the top honchos of the brand. It’s being developed in India and Japan while the manufacturing will take place only in India for cost-effectiveness. Interestingly, Honda is also working on hybrid assembly lines which can churn out ICE as well as electric two-wheelers.

Hero Maestro Xoom 110 launch date

Hero MotoCorp is all set to launch its newest scooter, the Maestro Xoom 110, on 30 January, 2023 in India. While the Xoom is likely to incorporate the same engine as the existing Maestro Edge 110, there might be a lot of differences to make it sportier. As we have deciphered from the teaser, the design is clearly different and more aggressive, similar to the likes of the TVS Ntorq 125 and the Honda Grazia 125.
