Gujarat is the karma-bhumi for us as we have together covered a long journey of growth and development. We at Honda are committed to contribute towards the progress of the community and in Gujarat we have a unique connection with the people. Further ensuring safety for all citizens, today we join hands with Gujarat Police and present Honda motorcycles. These customized motorcycles will help them in preventing crime in the state.”

For Honda, safety always comes first. Through our dedicated CSR initiatives, Honda is already contributing to making Indians safer on roads, be it through our support to law enforcement agencies or even through our education based road safety programs.
