Honda, which makes some fine quality bikes, really gives its competitors restless times. Some time back in 2010, Honda launched Twister in 100-110cc segment. The bike was launched in 5 color options initially, but later on in 2011 the manufacturer added another color – Pearl Sunbeam White. With the addition of White, the total number of color options added up to 6.
Twister can be considered as the best bike in the 100-110cc segment. Honda is another name for quality and this bike was no different than any other Honda product. The manufacturer has loaded the bike with looks, features and reasonable power for the commuter segment, and with so many color options, the bike initially sold like hot cake.
However, recently there was news that the company discontinued two color options from their list without notice. When cross checked with the dealers, we found that the news was indeed true and the company has discontinued Pearl Sunbeam White and Candy Palm Green Color option, reportedly owing to low demand. Now Twister is available in just four colors, which are:
Heavy Grey Metallic
Electric Yellow Metallic
The company has also changed the names of other two color options, like the Sports Red now which was earlier called ‘Pearl Sienna Red’ and ‘Pearl Nightstar Black’ is now called just Black. The Twister in White colour which looked stunning is no longer available!
Honda is very much determined to give its rival, Hero, an eye to eye competition. The makers are busy with another two products approaching the launch. The company is already busy with another important job on their checklist; yes, the company is busy altering their existing lineup by retaining the products that are in demand and discontinuing the ones which are not.
