While there is no clarity on what exact product does Honda have in mind, but something that's close to a Rebel 300 fits all the speculations. It has been hinted that the bike has been designed specifically for the Indian market, but whether it uses an all-new platform or is based on the Rebel 300, is yet not confirmed.

It could be priced somewhere in the range of 2 lakh to 2.5 lakh, which will place it in the territory of the Royal Enfield bikes. Honda will use this chance to break RE's monopoly in the sub-400 cc cruiser segment since there is no other bike maker which sells in the same space, save for Jawa.
