Honda Motorcycles & Scooters India Ltd. is going head on to compete with the most popular segment of Bikes in India, the 100 CC segment dominated by Hero Honda Splendor and Hero Honda Passion bikes. Since Hero Honda has already split into Hero Group and Honda will continue its operations in the two wheelers segment in India, there is not conflict over having a competing product which may give a tough time to the best seller from Hero Honda (now Hero Group). In the recent developments, we have reported Hero group considering to remove Honda brand name from Hero Honda Passion and Splendor, the these series of events seems quite in connect with each other.
The Honda 100 CC commuter segment bike will be placed below 110 CC Honda CB Twister and will also cost less. It will be more fuel efficient compared with the CB Twister with Honda’s expertise in fuel efficient and silent engines. The launch maybe placed close to March 2011, however the launch dates have not been officially confirmed as yet. Stay tuned, we will bring you more information on this bike as it arrives.
