More Demand, Less Supply For Honda CB150F

Honda CB150F has just been launched but there are already complaints regarding its unavailability in the showrooms of authorized Honda dealers in Karachi. HondaCB150F has a very powerful 150cc SOHC engine. It is self starting with aluminium alloy rims and LED fog lights. This new Honda bike delivers all you desire in a complete bike.

Why is there a strong demand for the new Honda bike? Apart from the 150cc engine, Honda CB150F is being offered with a full 3-year warranty that is definitely longer than the industry standard 6-month warranty. Aside from the warranty, it is very obvious that Honda has taken its time to study the market potential of launching a new product with ventilated front disc brakes, vibrant speedometer the gear indicator, trip meter, RPM and fuel gauge that can be purchased for the most competitive price.

Dealers in Karachi usually have one Honda CB150F on display at their showroom. Buyers can book for the bike but it will take 45 days for delivery. 45 days is still tentative. The Honda two-wheeler has an official price tag of Rs159, 000 but dealers are insisting the buyers should pay Rs180, 000. Buyers are alarmed that dealers might ask for a higher price in the future.

According to a dealer, Atlas Honda Limited has not supplied the new bike as per demand and two to three bikes were only given to showrooms. The company is now asking the dealers to stop advance booking.

Various Honda bikes like the CG-125 and Honda CD70cc were in the limelight for the past two years because of low supplies and rising premiums for spot delivery in spite of the increase in production. Production capacity has already been increased to 1.35 million units a year from the previous 750,000 units. Either demand cannot be met or dealers are creating artificial shortage to raise premiums on spot delivery.

Dealers in the Peterborough and Leicester areas offer a wide range of Honda motorbikes. You get more value for your money when you order a Honda motorbike. With some selected Honda motorcycles, you gain a free kit that includes top boxes, seat cowls or heated grips including panniers and knuckle guards.
