Maxxis India, a sub-company of Maxxis Group, has rolled out
its first two-wheeler tyres consignment from the recently set-up Sanand, Gujarat
facility to Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI). The company has been
supplying OEM tyres fitment to HMSI through its Vietnam facility since 2016.
The first completely locally produced tyre from the facility
is the 90/100-10 M6000 for Honda Activa 5G, Activa i and Dio scooters. This
tyre is designed to provide extra strength and safety to the vehicles. The
Sanand plant is equipped with technologies of the future that enable world
class quality products. The plant has been operational since August 2017 and caters
to two wheeler tyre and tube production. The company plans to set up 4 more
plants in India which will cater to four wheeler tyre production as well.
Maxxis is aiming to supply 1 million tyres to its OEM partners and capture 15%
of the Indian two-wheeler tyre market by 2023.
