Speaking on the current market scenario, Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Director – Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India said, “Honda was the first two-wheeler manufacturer to lead the BS-VI transition almost 6 months ahead of the deadline with Activa 125 BS-VI in September’19. Over 6.5 lac customers are now experiencing #AQuietRevolution led by Honda’s six advanced BS-VI models. Despite all efforts, 2019-20 has been a challenging year in more ways than one. COVID-19 impact derailed industry’s plans and has severely impacted the automobile ecosystem – right from supply chain to dealers. As a responsible manufacturer, Honda is committed to taking care of all its stakeholders and society at large in these uncertain times.”
