Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India limited plans to launch a new 110 cc bike at the upcoming Delhi Auto Expo 2010. The new bike equipped with 110cc engine will be the first entry-level bike from HMSCI and will be priced around Rs. 45,000. According to company officials, although the bike falls in 100cc segment, nevertheless it will feature sporty design and style.

“We are developing a new 110cc bike for India. It is the largest segment, and we want to tap this entry-level market with aggressive prices and innovative product. Our bike will be entirely different from the current breed of 100cc bikes,” said HMSI president and CEO Shinji Aoyama. “It would be a full-fledged bike at an attractive price. It is not going to be a commuter motorcycle just because it will be part of the 100cc plus segment. It will be sporty for sure but the direction in style is somewhat different,” he stated further.

Honda had been facing labour issues at its Manesar plant and is contemplating options to set up a new manufacturing facility in Haryana or completely out of the state. "Though there is no concrete action regarding a new factory, we have started a study on the issue," said Aayoma.

Stunner looks stylish IMO, but I feel HONDA should have launched it with a 150CC engine.
Looking forward to the launch of its 110CC bike.

Dam ! Honda should come up with some thing like 200cc bikes.

The 110cc + group should have been left to Hero Honda.

Yeah racerdabba the stunner is a touch too overpriced for its segment!! a few more extra money and you can get a 150cc bike itself!!!

Yes this was heard, honda would come out with new entry level bike with better looks and styling.Hope they do come out with not just style but better engine as well as pricing as stunner though looks cool is much over priced, only if it was available in 150cc engine then it was a stunner in market as well.

Now Bajaj will have more trouble. HH will finally get some tough competition, hopefully. But it all depends on the attractive pricing, that Honda claims.
