Honda is arguably the best motorcycle brand in the world. They make these motorcycles in many different countries and there are dealerships in virtually every country. Buyers of Honda bikes can pick up a motorcycle of their choice from a dealer close to where they live.
A Model for Every Buyer
If one takes all the models of the two wheelers from Honda at one of their dealers, you will be able to find motorcycles and scooters as the two broad categories and in each, there would be further models and versions. You will find
· Sports Tourers
· 125 CC bikes and scooters
Under each of these, you will be showed a number of variations, though the engine could be common in each category. These versions of bikes have been deliberately created by Honda over several decades, based on the customer preferences and feedback received from the riders. The reality is that there is a market for each of these models and the company, and the dealers have to stock all of them and display to the customers who walk in to buy a Honda two wheeler.
The customers will make their choice based on their own yardsticks. The choice could be based on their gender, age and the type of use they would like to put the bike to. The dealer selling Honda bikes would be fully aware of these factors and their executives will approach their customers accordingly.
Some of the technical features the customers will look for relate to the engine capacity. For instance, a bike with a 125CC 4-stroke engine is more or less the standard power for most of the bikes. The scooters also come with the 125CC engine. The transmission type also matters a lot. The scooters come with the V-matic transmission, while the motorcycles sport 5 speed and 6 speed transmissions. Most of these two wheelers will have an electric push button starter. It is the accessories that distinguish one range from another and Honda’s reputation in making world class quality bikes is already legendary.
Offers and Discounts on the New Bikes
Once the customer has made up his/her mind to buy a Honda vehicle and approaches a Honda bikes dealer, the first task is to pick the right model and version as described above. Once this is done, the customer has to check for the best offers available.
Honda offers some fabulous financing options for the buyers of the bikes. One of them is a personal contract purchase and another, the normal straight forward loan to buy the vehicle. In the first financing method, the company works out a guaranteed minimum future value of the vehicle, and the remaining cost of the vehicle is financed, and the repayment scheduled on monthly equated instalments. There is an option to sell the bike back or replace with another model after the loan contract period is over.
The dealer will also have a separate list of offers on purchase of Honda bikes. These may be in the form of cash discounts on the selling price of the bike or some concessional financing options. So do your own exercise of selecting the best bike from the Honda stable and ride out in one.
