In 2015, Honda is planning to launch 15 new models in India.
Announcing the roadmap for this year, Keita Muramatsu, President & CEO, HMSI told NDTV, "With India contribution reaching 25% of global Honda motorcycle sales this year; India is and will remain Honda's priority market globally. However, I consider 50 lakh units to be the turning point of Honda in India. In FY 2015-16, Honda is taking the next leap of business expansion. We will be bigger with new manufacturing capabilities and aggressively growing network in the hinterlands, better at customer satisfaction and bolder with our introduction of ever highest 15 new models in just one year."
