New affordable Honda bike coming in 2023! » MotorOctane


The Indian 2-wheeler market is one of the largest in the world. Most of the sales are made by affordable commuter bikes. Hero and Honda both know the game well, but Hero has always been superior to Honda. Honda is working on an affordable bike that will help it take on the Splendor. In today’s article, let’s talk about Honda’s affordable bike.

Why a 100cc bike?

Honda Motorcycle is working on a new 100cc motorcycle. So why a 100cc bike? Honda has a presence in the 125cc segment but not in the 100cc segment. So Honda wants to enter the 100cc segment to make a new customer base. This will help Honda target rural India. Another thing that Honda wants to do is reduce Hero’s dominance in this segment. Honda will maintain its reliability, cheap servicing cost, good suspension and handling.

Specifications

Honda is yet to reveal anything about this 100cc engine. Honda currently has two motorcycles in the 110cc segment. This engine is capable of producing 8.7 bhp and 9.3 Nm of torque. So this new engine will provide less power than its 110cc engine. However, Honda will be looking to get maximum mileage out of this bike as mileage remains a key aspect in this segment. We can expect mileage between 65 kmpl and 70 kmpl.

This development of an affordable bike has been confirmed by Atsushi Ogata, CEO and Managing Director, Honda India. He also stated that this bike could be the first one released by Honda in 2023. So we can expect it in the first half of 2023. What about the price? It is expected to start at Rs 90,000 (on-road, Mumbai). Honda’s 100cc bike will compete with Splendor, HF Deluxe, Bajaj Platina and more.
