Honda Brings In Premium Big Bike Retail Experience To India

  • Honda BigWing outlets will be specialised retail outlets with CKD & CBU offerings on sale.
  • Honda has also launched a dedicated website for its premium bikes sold in India.
  • The first Honda BigWing dealership has opened in Gurugram, with more to follow.

Honda has launched its first BigWing dealership in Gurugram in India. Earlier this year, Honda had announced that they would be expanding their big bike portfolio in India under the Silver Wing brand. The BigWing dealership will be Honda’s one-stop shop for sales and service of its big bikes. Honda has done this to give their potential and existing big bike customers a premium personalised experience, something along the lines of the Maruti Suzuki Nexa experience. The showroom will display the complete Honda India big bike lineup and also serve as an event area for delivering motorcycles with a personalised touch.

Honda’s current big bike portfolio (CKD & CBU offerings) consists of the CB300R that starts at Rs 2.41 lakh, the CBR650F, Africa Twin, CB1000R, CBR1000RR and the range-topping GL1800 Gold Wing which retails for Rs 27.79 lakh (prices ex-showroom, Delhi). Honda had recently launched the CB300R street naked in India. Brought in as a CKD offering, the bike currently commands a waiting period ranging from one to six months, depending on the city.

We think this is a good move by Honda to offer a personalised and premium experience for its niche big bike customers, something that has previously been a standard practice for premium brands like Ducati, Triumph and Harley-Davidson.
