Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd (HMSI), is targeting for a boost of 20% in sales for the ongoing year. In order to attain this target, the company is planning to make an additional investment of Rs. 1,600 crore. 

The Japanese automaker will be launching four new models - two motorcycles and two scooters. Its most important launch will be the 1000cc Honda Africa Twin adventure bike with the DCT automatic gearbox featuring advanced dual clutch technology. The company has already begun to construct the parts of Honda Africa Twin adventure bike which is likely to be launched in a couple of months.

The other motorcycle is expected to be a middleweight explorer that shall give a tough competition to the Eicher Motors Ltd’s Royal Enfield. 

As far as the two upcoming scooters are concerned, the officials have not disclosed any information. We can expect the launch of Honda PCX 150 which can be a good option in comparison to the Aprilia SR 150.

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd (HMSI) is the India’s second largest two-wheeler maker. Noriaki Abe, who took over as CEO of Honda’s global motorcycle business on 1st April, is all ready to continue the dominance in India. He recently pointed out, that the company has learned a lot from the uncertain demonetization and BS-III engine ban. 

According to Kato, Honda is also planning to make India an export hub, "After 2020, after the application of BS-VI, our products in India will be ready to export everywhere. That will make India an export hub".
