Country's second largest two-wheeler manufacturer, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, Private Limited (HMSI) is in great temper to line-up its new models. The latest news about HMSI is that the company is gonna hit market with an all new two-wheeler. It is teased on the official website of HMSI with a picture, "Ready to fly?. 12th June, 2013".
Still, it's uncertain what is going to be unveiled on 12th June, 2013. Would it be the much awaited CBR400? Would it be its elder sibling, the CBR 500R? Of course, there is a probability. Because, earlier we had reported that Honda introduced a completely innovative 400cc, two-cylinder water-cooled engine, specially crafted for the Asian markets. The engine was made for the CBR400, which is yet to be revealed. It is expected to fire out a stunning power of 46 Ps and aggressive torque of 37 Nm at 9,500 Rpm.
"We approached power characteristics and configuration with emphasis on precise linear acceleration and deceleration, as well as responsive control in full-body manoeuvres like braking and entering and corner exit acceleration. We discussed and developed an engine with the aim of making it please the majority of our domestic customers while meeting the demands of the developed countries," said Mr. Yoshiki Nagahashi, Head of development for the new engine at the Honda Motorcycle R&D Centre, while talking about the new 400 cc engine.
Meanwhile, the other probability is a 125cc scooter. Yup! Honda is definitely missing a performing scooter which is as power as the Suzuki Access. For those who look for a powerful scooter, Honda is a total depression. There are also sources which predict that the machine that is gonna unveiled on 12th June might be a scooter named, Activa-i. Rumour mongers also spit out that the scooter will be the PCX 150 and even more speculations on the Lead 125.
We are thoroughly at the of anticipation. It can either be a scooter or a performing bike. Whatever, let's wait until 12 and watch what Honda has newly in its bag.
The firm had earlier vowed that it would become the largest motorcycle company of India by 2015-16. It seems like the consortium is executing things as plans to achieve the top spot in the Indian market. The firm has already launched the refreshed variants of the Dio, Activa, and the Aviator, the all new CB Trigger, and the Dream Neo this year.
