The Honda H’ness has got off to a roaring start. The biggest complaint though is that it is sold only through Big Wing dealerships. To appease its customers, Honda has rolled out a new scheme. The Japanese company has not only opened two new Big Wing dealerships in India but also rolled out schemes for H’ness buyers. These two new dealerships are in Mumbai and Bengaluru. The Mumbai one is located at G/2, OIA House, 470 Cardinal Gracious Road, Andheri (East), Mumbai – 400099. As for the Bengaluru facility, it is at 40/1, Ground Floor, Vittal Mallya Road, Bengaluru, Karnataka-560001. These dealerships are called Big Wing Topline as these will cater only to the mid-size Honda products (300-1800cc) like H’ness and above. The Big Wing dealerships will not only host all these products but also mighty guns like the CBR1000RR, Africa Twin and so on.
What is the Honda H’ness deal you were talking about?
The Honda H’ness is part of the big festival savings. Honda has partnered with ICICI Bank wherein customers, for a limited time, will get 100 per cent finance on their bike. The interest rate will be as low as 5.6 per cent. This rate is nearly half of the prevailing one in the market. In short, customers stand to save up to Rs 43,000 on ICICI finance. Not only this, customers can also choose to have a Rs 4,999 EMI option as well. This in today’s scenario is quite affordable.
The Honda H’ness is powered by a 350cc, single-cylinder engine. This engine makes 21PS of power and 30Nm. The latter comes on very early in the rev range, @3,000rpm. While we are yet to ride the H’ness, we assume that it will make a mincemeat of traffic. There is a 5-speed gearbox, Honda Torque Vectoring, Bluetooth connectivity and LED lights. Dual-channel ABS too is on offer.
