Gurgaon: Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. (HMSI) has rolled out the latest television commercial (TVC) for exciting 4th Gen upgrade of Activa – India’s No. 1 selling 2 wheeler brand.
Developed by Dentsu One, a Dentsu Aegis Network agency, the TVC was launched with the World Television Premier of Jolly LLB 2 and has started running on air across popular channels from 14th May’17.
The ‘Nayi Generation Hai’ campaign reinforces the top of mind recall for Honda’s fourth generation Activa; both emotionally and rationally. The idea is to showcase how Activa 4G is playing an active role in the slice of life of India’s new generation.
The target audience of Honda’s Activa is not limited to a specific age group or region. It is trusted by every generation across the nation. Age or gender is no more the barrier for people to do different things or do things differently. The slice of life narrative is written with a consumer insight that people from different age brackets are now venturing into things that were traditionally considered out of bounds for them.
“With trust of over 1.5 crore Indian families, Activa has grown to become India’s No. 1 selling two-wheeler brand. Its continuous evolution over the years in terms of technology, innovation and design ethos has made Activa relevant across generations. While retaining its core of trust and reliability, our astute communication has led Activa to gain top of consumer mindshare as well. The biggest insight when we started the TVC campaign was ‘A new generation in every generation.’ This is what the New Activa 4G television campaign captures… every age group is now a new generation and Activa 4G is made for them,”said Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President-Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd.
“Time was when we used to say ye nayi peedhi hai, ye aisi hain, waisi hain, inko samajhna mushkil hai etc. but now you see that there is no such thing as a generation gap. Everyone behaves in similarly. Everyone’s on social media, everyone’s physically active, so on and so forth. When we received the brief for the country’s top selling 4th generation two-wheeler – Activa 4G, we thought it’s an opportune time to speak of this new generation that defies all age related myths,” said Titus Upputuru, National Creative Director, Dentsu One
“The traditional demographics have become a passé and age as a metric of classification means nothing. Marketing and brand building is all about having right insights that connect to right mindsets – whether the consumer is 18 or 80 years doesn’t really matter. Activa 4G is an iconic brand that straddles multiple generations and has a ubiquitous connect with a huge spectrum of consumers. This communication celebrates this progressive, refreshing, new-age attitude and a way of thinking that binds the varied consumers with similar mindsets,” said Abhinav Kaushik, Senior Vice President, Account Management, Dentsu One
