The feat was achieved cumulatively by the four manufacturing plants that HMSI has in India. They have achieved this milestone in just 17 years, which is an industry first.

Ltd. said, “Since the very start in 2001, Honda 2Wheelers India has led with its challenging spirit. Our first model, a scooter (Activa) activated the slowing scooter market with its advanced features and fresh design and is now leading India’s scooterization as No. 1 selling two-wheeler of India.Delighting 35 million customers with 24 products Honda 2wheelers is now reaching closer

    Mr. Honda,

    Congrats for flooding roads with your products. But besides these mass scale products, which are of course very good, you should also provide some higher level bikes also. Why should you bring old outdated CBR 250R to India and not the 250RR or the CB 300R or the CBR 400R. I love the looks of CB 300R.

    Sometimes do think of other prospective customers also who are not part of the masses. Do not look for money everywhere.

    Yours (who may be others'.)

    It's the market, Honda aren't interested in motorcycle market, I honestly don't know why the x blade was even introduced, looks pathetic in features, I don't see anything outstanding. Its just that they are content with selling more scooters than worry about a niche 250-500 cc market.
