"Our existing three plants are running at 100 percent capacity as demand is rising faster than what we can offer. We still have around six-month waiting period for Activa.

"So we will be commissioning the Rs 1,100-crore scooters-only plant in Gujarat by the end of next month instead of the earlier plan of end-March," said HMSI President and Chief Executive Keita Muramatsu on the sidelines of launching the country's first BS-IV-compliant biking model CB Hornet 160R here.

"This scooters-only plant at Vithalapur near Ahmedabad is the world's largest plant for any scooter maker," Muramatsu said, adding this will take the company's overall capacity to 5.8 million from the present 4.6 million.

Muramatsu said by the next year, India will be the largest market for its parent Honda globally. Currently, with 4.65 million units, Indonesia is the largest market, while the Indian market is worth 4.60 million units now.
