Talking about the industry scenario and the market demand, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Director – Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Honda has entered 2021 with double-digit growth and added the maximum incremental volumes to the industry. While we do foresee the low base effect to remain in play till the end of Q4 and continue into Q1 of FY’22; we are hopeful that colleges re-opening, on-going COVID vaccination drive and stronger urban demand will act as a tailwind for domestic 2Wheeler demand recovery moving ahead. "

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has also registered its sixth consecutive month of positive year-on-year sales, reflecting a strong recovery since the lockdown was eased.
