A man desperate to buy a two-wheeler in Satna district of Madhya Pradesh bought a new Honda Activa scooty on Dhanteras. But the entire amount was paid in coins.
It took the showroom workers four hours to count the entire sum.
Rakesh Gupta brought only five and 10 rupee coins to Krishna Honda showroom here on Dhanteras in 4 jute bags and paid ₹83,000 and rode home on his all new Activa 125 BSVI.
Showroom manager Anupam Mishra told IANS: “On Dhanteras, Rakesh Gupta came to our showroom in an auto with several gunny bags. He expressed his desire to purchase a Honda Activa 125 BSVI. I talked to the showroom owner Ashish Puri who said that the counting of coins will take time. We did not want to disappoint anyone on Dhanteras, and so decided to fulfill his wish.”
Honda Motorcycles has recently launched the new Activa 125, which is now BS-VI emission norm compliant and has been priced at ₹74,490 ex-showroom for the top-end disc brake variant.
