HMSI Director (Sales and Marketing) Yadvinder Singh Guleria said, "May 2020 saw the wheels of business start turning slowly after the zero dispatch in the month of April 2020. By now, a sizable 70 per cent of Honda dealerships have resumed their operations."

He further said that in the new coronavirus era, Honda dealerships are increasingly promoting digital contactless customer engagement.

"An early encouraging sign based on our survey is that about 80 per cent of the intenders are looking forward to purchase their favourite Honda two-wheelers within three months of the lockdown opening," Guleria said.

Moreover, there is an increased propensity of the buyers preferring a two-wheeler over public transport for daily commuting, in this time of social distancing, he added.

"Our network has swiftly realigned their operations to welcome them and meet new expectations of the customers," Guleria said.

HMSI said that in May, its entire ecosystem including dealers and suppliers re-booted their operations.
