Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) said in a statement this week that as part of the country’s future business vision, it wants to offer various electrified models, launch entry-level 100 cc bikes, and enhance exports. In addition, the company intends to use its Manesar-based manufacturing unit as a worldwide hub for international shipments.
Honda has always been known for producing fuel-efficient vehicles, and the company is currently working on a phased introduction of its new flex-fuel technology across its two-wheeler product line. “Bringing the synergies of Honda’s global expertise with strong indigenous support, HMSI will further expand its horizons in India, and implementation of flex-fuel technology and EV model introduction in the future will help lead to an exciting journey,” said HMSI MD, President, and CEO Atsushi Ogata.
Currently, the corporation is weighing its choices and scrutinising the electric scooter sector. Following which, they would work with their partners to prepare their India-bound EV lineup. Aside from that, Honda intends to join the low-end motorbike market. It will be interesting to see what the brand will have on offer since this is the first time the corporation has announced aspirations to enter this market.

They now hope to turn their Manesar plant into a global hub for exporting items to 40 countries, with the final goal of serving more developed countries from India. In response to the present rate of inflation, HMSI Director (Sales and Marketing) Yadvinder Singh Guleria said, “Moving further, though supply chain issues still persist and the industry facing head winds of increasing commodity and fuel prices, we anticipate a sustained market recovery on a lower base of last fiscal.”
