The company also exports the Honda SP 125 Completely Knocked Down (CKD) kits to European markets. The company said it had shipped more than 2,000 CKD kits of SP 125 to Europe since August this year.
The Honda SP 125 brand’s first BS-VI motorcycle arrived in India last November. The bike witnessed several upgrades to comply with the new pollution regulations.
“The transition from BS-IV to BS-VI has been a challenging one for the Indian auto industry. A company spokesperson said that Honda Two Wheelers India has turned this challenge into an opportunity to export to developed countries.
CKD kits of SP 125, a 125cc motorcycle, began to be exported to Europe. It is a testament to our excellent quality, technology, and commitment to developing global footprints.
The company also revealed that we want to expand into many new markets in the future. The change to BS-VI standards has not only been a major change for the Indian automotive industry but has opened up new avenues for automakers with new rules that are in line with many other international markets.
Honda already exports to several global markets in Latin America, the Middle East, and other parts of Asia. SP 125, the Indian subsidiary of the Japanese giant, exports to Europe at a crucial moment.
The Honda SP 125 is an executive commuter motorcycle. The bike is powered by an updated 125cc HET engine with eSP technology.
This technology offers 16 percent more fuel-efficient than the older version. The bike also has segment-leading features including a digital console that displays information about the empty distance, average fuel efficiency with the Eco indicator, gear position indicator and much more.
The SP 125 also comes with an LED headlamp and an engine start-stop switch. The SP 125 is manufactured at the Honda Two Wheelers Tapukkara plant in Rajasthan. Honda India has been exporting two-wheelers since 2001. The company achieved an export milestone of 25 lakh in January this year and currently exports to 25 markets around the world.
