Objective of the campaign
The new campaign has been launched with the imperative to establish ‘Dream Series’, as the definitive range from HMSI that answers many consumer needs and motivations.
Brief shared with the agency – Dentsu Marcom
The brief was to create a communication under umbrella of Dream Series- The mass-segment motorcycle brand from Honda which is a combination of three brands with three distinctive propositions for the consumers.
In an attempt to consolidate Honda’s mass offering the Dream range motorcycles were positioned as follows Dream Neo – Durable and Sturdy motorcycle, Dream Yuga – Stylish offering in the 110cc stable and CD Dream 110 – Value for money variant with an unmatched legacy of ‘CD’.
The overall target group for Dream Series was identified as 20-40 year old; salaried, self -employed, shop owners, farmers, skilled workers, etc., residing in rural or semi urban cities.

Film Descriptor (i.e. describing the film)
The protagonists along with their motorcycles reflect how people have different wants and dreams in life, while the first protagonist is a transitional stage who aspires to have a blend of style at the best possible deal, his bike reflects the aspirational class in the tier-2 cities, the second protagonist is a easy going youth who loves to flaunt his coolness through his lifestyle, the bike has an amount of refinement being an extension to himself. The third protagonist, is a middle age office going person who understands the value of money and prefers things which are value for money yet classy.
Excerpts from Company Spokesperson-
“Honda’s leadership in technology has been well established in the market. With Dream Series we aim to strengthen our presence in the mass motorcycle segment. The Dream Series blends a range of motivations along with the joy of buying a bike. With the HET technology and reliable Honda engine as it’s core. The TVC campaign further reinforces Honda’s trusted technology and its commitment towards hinterlands.” -Mr. Y. S. Guleria, Vice President-Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd.
“The brief was to showcase all three motorcycles of the Honda Dream Series in one film. We thought why not put them all in a parking lot of one family. So while the brothers fight it out claiming that each one’s bike is better than the other’s, the father turns up to resolve the conflict saying “teeno ke ragon mein khoon toh ek hee ka hain”. All the 3 bikes have the same DNA. The Honda DNA,” said, Titus Upputuru, National Creative Director.
