Keita Muramatsu, the president and CEO of Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) said, “We are excited to have started the festive season on a high note, with Activa creating a hat-trick as the no. 1 selling two-wheeler of India for three consecutive months. From reactivating the scooter segment in India in 2001, Honda’s iconic Activa has slowly started penetration in rural India. Further, with the improvement in rural infrastructure in future, we expect that scooter contribution has the potential to go up further.”
