So, it was expected that Honda was testing the new products for the Indian market. Speaking to CarandBike, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing, Y S Guleria said that they were just testing the products on Indian roads.
Guleria stated that testing a product on Indian roads does not mean that they will be launched in the Indian market. But he also revealed that a similar kind of product would be launched in the country.
Guleria said, "Any testing which is happening in India probably may not be only for that model. There are sometimes some technology, some specifications, some features, so it's an ongoing process."
Honda Grom is a mini motorcycle which was also an inspiration for the Navi which is currently sold in India. In the global market, it is also called as MSX125, and it draws power from a 124.9cc engine producing 9.7bhp and 10.9Nm of torque.
The other product which was spotted in India was the Scoopy, a retro-styled automatic scooter. It is powered by the existing 110cc engine producing 8bhp and 9Nm of torque.
Honda has put an end to the speculations regarding the launch of the Grom and Scoopy in India. But the company might be testing the suspension and the platform for its new products for the Indian market. Honda has already revealed that it will be introducing two new products in the country.
