Site loads fine here :)However, I am extremely surprised by these numbers. Even more so considering that Honda is better known as the scooter company in India. Is there some breakup somewhere of these numbers? I genuinely would want them to be No. 1, but not with the kind of mediocre products they have in the market. I have a Unicorn, and I have TDd the Dazzler, and while these are really fine bikes, I do not like their staid outlook

Unicorn and Unicorn dazzler have one among the most refined engines in world, typical Honda. Parts are good as well and spare part availablity is not a big issue these days with Honda. I own a CBR250R and its great bike as well in many aspects and maintainance is very less than what i thought before buying.

Dazzler and Unicorn are commuter bikes and less focuse on looks. Dazzler is quite a looker still in my opinion and looks much better than many other bikes in segment. You should't forget that CBR150R is hitting the Indian roads very soon. Their 110CC Twister has been praised for looks as well and I see it a popular among youngsters.

CBR150R? That would be surely hit like Yamaha bikes. I guess people are bored with Pulsars :)

Yes, CBR150R is coming by March end or April. It was announced for Indian market in Auto Expo 2012.

It outruns the all current bikes upto 180CC in terms of power and torque. It is also coming in more attractive tri colour schemes than dual in CBR250R earlier. Same colour schemes were announced for CBR250R also at the same time and I already saw it in red-blue-white combo in showroom, last week.

They did announce 4-5 new bikes for India, few will be imported, one is superbike (CB1000R) other is of chopper category (VFR series) and upgraded current lineup to some extent as well. Dio gone through major upgrade. Cosmetic upgrades for Dazzler and Shine.

They stole whole the limelight of motorcycle segment in Auto Expo 2012 and IMHO, they seem to be the most serious player in India at this moment.
