Default Honda & Yamaha join hands to develop scooters!

This is an interesting development; curious if and how it trickles down to India.

Honda has been absolutely ruthless in the scooter market in India while Yamaha has barely made a mark.

Japan's Honda Motor Co Ltd and Yamaha Motor Co Ltd on Wednesday said they were joining forces to develop scooters for the domestic market, burying the hatchet on a decades-old rivalry and consolidating production in response to a shrinking motorcycle market.

Honda, the world's largest motorcycle brand by sales, said it would start producing Yamaha's 50-cc engine scooter models for the domestic market at its plant in southern Japan by the end of 2018, based on the manufacturing platform for Honda's small scooter models.
