Hi ppl...its news REAPER Rash here...
Its been around 2 weeks now..and the NEWS section does not seem to be heating up at all !!!
Well, here is somethin that will keep u thinking. What I'm posting here is some info on the bike segment of HMSI (HONDA MOTORCYCLES and SCOOTERS, INDIA).
The news is that Honda is coming with not one, but two bikes - a mass commuter and a entry level power bike.
The mass commuter is a 125cc bike, which I'm not interested in talking abt.
The entry level power bike is what we all want to know abt...
Its a 150cc with around 13 horses. It has naked looks, i.e a round headlamp with a Karizma kind of a body. The overall size is somewhat similar to that of the CBZ. Key features include :
0-60 in 6 secs
110 kmph true top speed
Mono-shock rear suspension
Twin dial instrument console with a rectangular digital screen in the centre.
Price : 47K ex-showroom (125cc), 52K ex-showroom (150cc)
Availablity : June 2004 (125cc), July 2004 (150cc)
***BTW do u ppl remember what happened to the scooter market after Honda came in ? Today (in 2 years) they own more than 60% of the scooter market. Now they are giving a second shot at the 2-wheeler market by entering the bike segment, and the second cut is the deepest.
