Honda To Launch New 100cc Motorcycle


Honda Dream Yuga 110 Launch

Honda Motorcycle and Scooters India (HMSI) is planning to come up with a 100cc motorcycle to compete head on with the king of the 100cc segment, the Hero Splendor. The 100cc motorcycle from Honda is currently under development and is expected to roll out within a few months to expand the company’s Dream series of mass market bikes to take on its former partner Hero MotoCorp’s Splendor family. The upcoming Splendor rival is codenamed as K23, which will be based on the same platform used by the Dream Yuga motorcycle.

According to Honda officials involved in the development, the new 100cc bike is the value-engineered version of the Dream Yuga and it will be priced aggressively to hit the Splendor segment. The manufacturer is striving to get higher fuel economy from the bike as the USP. Honda has a target to sell 6 lakh units of the upcoming 100cc bike in FY14 and the combined sales of the Dream Yuga and the soon-to-be launched bike is targeted to be 12 lakh units.

Honda already has a target of selling 39.30 lakh units in FY14 and will be launching one new product every quarter. The Japanese automaker had announced earlier that they are targeting to become the top 2-wheeler manufacturer in India in 2020 but recently on the launch event of the CB Trigger bike, they believe that the number one spot can be achieved much before 2020, around 2015-16. If Honda achieves the targeted sales, it is expected to eat up significant market share from Hero MotoCorp. With the expansion of the Dream series budget motorcycles, Honda can expect big volumes.

    If the bike’s engine uses dream yuga platform it will be another flop but if it uses cub series platform it will be the clear winner.

      Dream yuga was not a flop. It is a hit despite of its poor conventional design. HMSI’s share in Indian market grew strong without the help of scooters for the first time. I dont undrestand why Shine and Yuga are flooding the roads. They needed to be upgraded. But its the best 100 cc engine now available today in India.

      • RIJU H DAS

        Shine and Dreamyuga from Honda, not from bajaj. That is the reason

  • Beamer

    Its simple Honda!
    Put the Dream Yuga on stage and do the following:
    1. Reduce the length of the bike and make it little larger (just little) Twister
    2. Remove the kicker and put in a button start and yes, have your maintenance free battery
    3. Reduce the size of the tank and add some plastics to the sides so that it would look bigger!
    4. Remove both the tires and plonk in a bicycle tubeless tire.
    5. Remove the normal gear lever and bring in the toe shift lever.
    6. Replace all the heavy parts in the bike with some stronger (so called) plastic parts.

    — Once done, this bike will give you a dream mileage per liter of petrol and then call it Dreamest yuga!!

      Wow, interesting insight. I am sure Honda is reading this and quite a few of those suggestions might be implemented by them in the upcoming 100cc bike.

      Why designing a commuter segment bike is a tough task?
      1. A lot of people are not comfortable with Toe shift pattern.
      2. A lot of Customers wants an Executive as well as conventional design.
      3. Remove thin tyres and upgrade to 300-18 tires for better grip in faulty Indian roads.
      4. Even with an MF battery, the bike needs an initial start up with the kicker for better performance
      5. Honda had already reduced the frame weight by using Diamond frame. already added plastics over a great level. If we use plastics for the fuel tank cover ( like FZ ), it will torn out in heavy sunlight when parked outside for long periods.
      6. If we reduce the length of the bike, many customers will not be pleased as they dream of nore comfort to the pillion- his wife, GF, or children.

        Guys, I was teasing Honda!! just to make them realize that we are in need of a good genuine product. It should be a product completely new from the start up. Not just mixing the engine with some other skin please!!
        I think it would make some real sense if Honda learns something from Bajaj or even TVS.. They had built a good product or atleast a standalone product like Discover or Flame or Phoenix

  • Borntechie

    Beamer, well said,

  • SKS

    No dear, because that way another funny shit like Bajaj BYK 100 (remember?) or Bajaj XCD (don’t remember the CC, sorry it’s from Bajaj) will take birth & will have the same fate as those two………….biggest flops!…HA-HA What you say…Beamer?

    • Jomin Dolges

      First XCD was 125 CC and then bajaj has launched XCD 135 with some modifications, but it was also a flop. Then they put that engine in another frame, added some plastics and launched as pulsar 135LS …
