Honda patents in India the scooter that will make Vespa tremble: the Stylo 160

Sling is the best selling scooter brand in India. In fact, its dominance in this segment has been overwhelming for a long time, thanks especially to the ever-popular Active 110. But what about Honda's higher capacity premium scooters for this market?

We have just learned the answer. The golden wing brand has patented the Honda Stylo 160. The chip that the Japanese were missing on the board of the Indian market. By the way, a model present in the Thai market, and which we already told you about at the time.

It's clear that Indian buyers' desire for larger, premium bikes has grown in recent years. In fact, many prefer to upgrade to a larger scooter rather than a proper motorcycle. The practicality of a flat floor, under-seat storage, along with the unisex design of a scooter, are factors that contribute to this purchasing preference.

Obviously the competition in India is quite fierce. On the one hand, yamaha offers the sports Aerox 155. For another, hero recently launched the Xoom 160 ADV and Aprilia you count on the MR and SXR 160. So that, Sling might be feeling pressured and is considering making a high-capacity scooter for this huge market. And yes, indeed, the Honda Stylo 160 patented could be the solution. It already happens in Thailand with this model.
