Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, a fully-owned subsidiary of Honda Motor Company of Japan, launched its first mass segment bike “CB Twister” in Chennai on Monday.

Addressing presspersons V. Sridhar, Vice-President (Manufacturing), said the 110cc bike would be the best in class in terms of initial acceleration and pick-up. This would create a new segment and expand the two-wheeler market in India.

The bike with three variants, namely, kick-drum-alloy, self-drum-alloy and self-disc-alloy, will be available in five colours by the end of this month, Mr. Sridhar said.

The company was planning to achieve sales of 12.5 lakh two-wheelers this fiscal against 10.70 lakh units in the previous year.

The plan was to cross the 15-lakh mark in 2010-11, he said.

According to P. Rajagopi, Regional Head (South), the concept behind the development of new models of two-wheelers was to meet the increasing demand from growing young population. He said the Tamil Nadu market contributed more than 9 per cent share for Honda in India.

The bike is equipped with maintenance free battery and viscous air filter for more
