Backed by strong domestic sales, India is already the No. 1 contributor to Honda's global two-wheeler sales. On the exports front, our tri-fold strategy of introducing new models, entering new markets while consolidating in existing markets has resulted in achieving 2 million export milestone. We thank our customers and business partners across the globe for their trust in Honda 2wheelers made in India. The future is exciting as the BS-VI norms effective in 2020 will unlock new markets for us."

A total of 16 models are exported from the country overseas with Latin America and SAARC countries leading the export demand.
Over 60 per cent of Honda's exports comprise scooters with the company being India's number one scooter exporter with a 63 per cent market share. In fact, the manufacturer says that ever second scooter exported from the country is a 'Honda Dio'. Motorcycle exports, meanwhile continue to grow double-digit and contribute over 50 per cent to Honda's total exports from India. With the BS6 norms coming up, Honda is optimistic that the upgraded motorcycles made-in-India unlock new markets for the company.
