Get ready for Honda CBR 1000cc!

The President and CEO, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd, Mr Shinji Aoyama, and the Operating Officer, General Manager, Planning Division Honda Motorcycle R&D Centre, Japan, Mr Kenji Kawaguchi, at the launch of Honda CBF Stunner motorcycle in New Delhi on Monday July 30th 2008.

Honda launched the CBF Stunner in New Delhi this Monday. The 125 cc bike will be priced from Rs 47,070 up to Rs 51,655 (ex-showroom Delhi). HSMI is also planning to introduce two more new models this year, a scooter and a motorcycle. Remember you got the news first on www.madsarmad.blogspot.com. There are more pictures of the CBF in my previous post... check them out as well.

So now the question is, will HMSI would eat into sibling Hero Honda’s market shares?
Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HSMI) said that it would not compete with its sister company, Hero Honda on volumes but by gaining recognition of its brand and customer satisfaction.

“Hero Honda is expanding and we are also expanding. I don’t think we can catch up with Hero Honda….There is no way. To us being number one does not mean scale in business or volumes, but getting recognised as an admired brand and through our customer satisfaction,” Mr Shinji Aoyama, President and CEO.
