2010 Honda CB “Twister” - $910 USD. That is correct, $910 USD.
Although not the most modern bike, Honda of India introduced a new fuel-efficient and easy-to-handle 110cc motorcycle called the CB Twister. The Twister is scheduled to go on sale in India at the end of February 2010.
Given the small size and low cost, the Twister is targeting the younger generation. Equipped with a low-friction, highly efficient air-cooled .11L 4-stroke engine, the new bike complies with India’s latest emissions standards that take effect in April 2010.
The starting price will be just $910 USD with an annual sales plan of 220,000 units.
India represents the world’s second largest motorcycle market behind only China, and year-to-date (January through November 2009) industry-wide motorcycle sales in India reached approximately 7.9 million units (up 14% compared to the same period a year ago). Honda sales have grown steadily with year-to-date sales of approximately 980,000 units (up 10% compared to the same period a year ago).
The introduction of CB Twister, Honda’s first 110cc motorcycle model, represents an effort to further expand its sales by fulfilling diversifying customer needs in the growing market of India where 110cc motorcycle models account for approximately 50% of total motorcycle sales.
