    Default Honda Stunner Production Stopped: xBhp News

    Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India has stopped 'regular' production of the Honda Stunner for the Indian market.

    Honda have stopped regular production of the Honda Stunner because of a dearth of sales and demand for this motorcycle. The company will only produce the bike on order from dealers. But dealers are not interested in ordering the Honda Stunner, because of the lack of demand for this 125cc. Some have even stated that they have not got any Stunners for the last three months.

    Honda had placed the bike in a new segment in the market, that of a sporty youth oriented bike in the smaller capacity market. Unfortunately the motorcycle enthusiasts in the market consider 125cc to be too less for it to be considered sporty enough, while the price of the Stunner placed it far ahead of the other motorcycles in the same engine capacity segment.

    Though with Honda's ever growing sales in the Indian two wheeler market in terms of market share and absolute sales, the company will not be too perturbed with the loss of the Honda Stunner.

    Default Honda CBF Stunner Stopped from Production

    Honda pulls the Plug on the CBF Stunner: Says economictimes



    Honda had ceased the CBF Stunner PGM-Fi and according to reports even the carbureted CBF Stunner has been put to rest. Honda had also stopped the CB Dazzler with the CB Trigger replacing it.

    The CBF Stunner was the first motorcycle in India to have sporty styling. When launched, everyone was of the opinion that this model would re-write the sales charts for Honda.

    Goes to prove that the consumer has a mind of his own and its impossible to predict it. Also it proves that Honda too is not immune to product discontinuation.

    It business, no point in keeping alive a model which does not generate the desired sales.

    When the Stunner was launched, it was the Sportiest model to have launched in India by Honda. Did not expect such cold reception by the Indian consumer to it.. just does to prove that the consumer has a mind of its own.

    The emergence of Ignitor was the begining of the end of Stunner. Also, the success of the Dream series meant that Honda has a more than healthy presence in the commuter segment. Nevertheless, Stunner - though a little overpriced, will always be remembered as a stylish youth icon. One of the most successful 125ccs ever launcehd in India.

    Don't worry, the Stunner shares its engine with the Shine.
    Shouldn't worry from the engine point of view.
