      Waiting for Hero's and Honda's. Honda with the new facility open could make huge growth in the coming months compared to last year. And Yamaha is growing, but slowly .

          This time even Honda is facing the pressure from economic slowdown as growth is not great and its motorcycles has seen a negative growth.

                What will be crucial to see is what Hero does between now and 2014 when their engine deal with Honda expires. What Hero's figures would be post 2014 is going to be exciting to watch.
                Every Motorcycle has a tale to be told and there is no greater privilage in the life of a rider than to have truly understood what his Motorcycle stands to tell. Some of the greatest stories in the world are not written, they are experienced.
