Honda Motor Company, Japan, in an official release today cleared its plan for the 2014 Auto Expo. The Japanese automaker released a detailed list of cars to be exhibited at its pavilion. In addition, the company also officially declared the unveiling of a brand new scooter for the Indian market. The new scooter will share space with a variety of Honda motorcycles at the brand’s pavilion at the 2014 Auto Expo.
In addition to revealing its plans for introducing a brand new scooter for the Indian market, the company also claimed to have the largest exhibit area at the Expo 2014 among all the two-wheeler makers in the India. “Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (Private) Ltd. will have the largest exhibition area among all motorcycle booths, and will exhibit a variety of motorcycle products including all-new scooter”, the company said in its official release.
While no details have been revealed about the new scooter for the Expo, it can be a brand new 125cc scooter, developed specifically for the Indian market. Since no details have been revealed about the scooter yet, the new machine may very well be a female specific offering, as there isn’t any such product in Honda’s scooter lineup.
Honda currently enjoys the lion’s share in the lucrative scooter market, and would require new product releases to consolidate its position in the segment. It’s notable that competition, including Mahindra Two wheelers, Suzuki, Hero, Yamaha and TVS has been increasingly paying more attention to the scooter segment and launching new products. This may make things a bit more difficult for Honda in the long run. The new scooter would help Honda offer another option to the customers in the scooter category. We’ll soon dig out the entire list of products from Honda Motorcycle and Scooters India limited at Auto Expo 2014. Stay tuned
