However bike and motorcycle owners of India were not fortunate enough to avail this facility as no makers were offering this type of service.
Things are changing, as Indians first tasted their doze of racing juice with Yamaha R15 and now CBR 250R going main stream, we are riding bigger bikes with complex and advance technology which is hard for any road side mechanic to detect or fix.

Honda promises to offer support via nearest dealer and the only catch is that one has to be within 25kms radios of the nearest dealer to avail the service. Meaning no matter where ever you are within India, if you are within 25 kms of a or any Honda dealer, calling that number would bring you the desired support to rescue you and your motorcycle.
We, from NexGenBikes.com tried to be in touch with few Honda dealers for pricing and more information, and it seemed there are some conflicting views on the subject.

The service is done on yearly basis and we have charges for CBR250 and CBR150
- Rs. 900/- + TAX for CBR 150R (Kolkata Price)

Some dealers said there is no extra towing fee where some said there would be some extra towing fee as per kms in-case the vehicle is support to brought back to service center.
