Honda to locally assemble high end Motorcyles in India

Recommended Posts

Looks like duty hike is prompting everyone to go the CKD route. Honda is the latest to join that club.

Honda already sells the CB1000R, CBR1000RR Fireblade, VFR1200F and VT 1300 CX (Fury) in the Indian market, all of which are brought down via the CBU route. Just recently, the Indian government hiked duties on CBU motorcycles, resulting in these products getting even more expensive. Thus Honda is now planning to set up an assembly plant for its high-end motorcycles. Bringing bikes through the CKD route will result in prices dropping by a considerable amount, which will bring the big bike bream more closer to bike lovers and enthusiasts.

Keep watching this space.

It's a good news for all of us.

If the prices are dropped by a considerable amount, it can be a game changer as people are more and more turning towards the sport & touring segment

Honda's goal is pretty clear unlike its rivals, just avail a product in each and every segment to ensure maximum market penetration and that is what they are doing, right from 110cc Yuga to 1300cc VT.
