But now the plant is being revived so, manufacturing is expected to begin soon. Even the deliveries the US have been delayed due to this.
About Honda’s plans to launch Africa Twin in India, Mr YS Guleria, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, said in a recent conference, “We never had plans to launch (Africa Twin) immediately so there is no delay as far as schedule is concerned. We are already in the next stage of completing the CKD kit, and then our teams are undergoing training. So we are on schedule and probably by middle of next year we will be with the Africa Twin.”
