Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India which is the largest seller of scooters and the fourth largest two wheeler maker in the country has inaugurated its second manufacturing facility in India at Tapukara in Rajasthan.  Right now only the phase 1 will be functional with the second phase going on stream in a couple of months time.  Honda is under severe pressure to meet the booming demand for its products with the Activa scooter commanding up to 8 months waiting period in some parts of the country.  None of the Honda products are available off the shelf and this has led to other players benefitting from Honda’s lack of production capacity.  Honda has also announced that it will be inaugurating a third plant at Narsapuram near Bengaluru in Karnataka.  The highest demand for the Activa is from the southern states.  The Tapukara plant will for the time being make the Activa and the CB Twister motorcycles.
