Introduction
Satisfaction is the persons feeling of pleasure (or) disappointment resulting from
comparing a product perceived performance (outcome) in relation to his/her
expectation. If the performance fall short of expectation the customer is dissatisfied . If
the performance matches the expectation the customer is satisfied if the performance
exceeds the expectation the customer is highly satisfied ( or ) delighted many
companies are aiming for high satisfaction because they are much ready to switch. ]
Buyer’s expectation formed on the basis of past buying experience,
friend and the associate advice and the marketers and the competitor’s information and
promises. If marketers raise expectations two high , the buyer is likely to be
disappointed . Even if the company sets expectation should match the performances.

activities and together with the impact of various influences on them towards making

behavior and knowing customer are never simple.
The wealth of products and service produced in a country make our economy strong.
The behaviour of human being during the purchase is being termed as “Buyer
Behaviour”. Customer says one thing but do another. They may not be in touch with
their deeper motivations. They are responding to Influences that change their mind at
the last minute. A buyer makes take a decision whether save or spend the money.

+ To promote the 3 new HERO HONDA bikes, viz. KARIZMA ZMR, PASSION
PRO, PLEASURE.
+ To create awareness among the respective target audiences.
+ To build up brand image,with different promotional strategies.
Definition of Buyer Behavior:-
Buyer behavior is “all psychological, Social and physical
Behaviors of potential customers as they become aware of evaluate, purchase, consume
and tell others about product & service.

Consumer Buying Decision Process
There are following five stages in consumer buying decision
Process.
1. Problem identification:-
The buying process starts when the buyer recognizes a problem or need. The need can
be triggered by internal or external stimuli.
Marketers need to identify the circumstances that trigger a Particular need. By gathering
information from a number of consumers, Marketers can identify the most frequent
17
stimuli that spark an interest in a product category. They can then develop marketing
strategies that trigger consumer interest.
2. Information Search:-
The consumer tries to collect information regarding various products/service. Through
gathering information, the consumer learns about completing brands and their features.
Information may be collected form magazines, catalogues, retailers, friends, family
members, business association, commercial, chamber of commerce, telephone directory,
trade fair etc. Marketers should find out the source of information and their relative
degree importance to the consumes.

3. Evaluation of alternative:-
There is no single process used by all consumers by one consumer
in all buying situations. There is several First, the consumer
processes, some basic concepts are:
First, the consumer is trying to satisfy need.
Second, the consumer is looking for certain benefits from the
product solutions.
The marketer must know which criteria the consumer will
use in the purchase decision.
4. Choice of purchasing decision:-
From among the purchase of alternatives the consumer makes the solution. It may be to
buy or not to buy. If the decision is to buy. The other additional decisions are:
Which types of bike he must buy? From whom to buy a bike? How the payment to be
made? And so on.
The marketer up to this stage has tried every means
to influence the purchase behavior, but the choice is properly.
In the evaluation stage the consumer forms preferences among the brands in the choice
set. The consumer may also form an intention to but the most preferred brand.
5. Post Purchase Behavior:-
After purchase the product, the consumer will experience the same level of product. The
Marketer’s job not end when the product is buying must monitor post-purchase
satisfaction, post-purchase action, post-purchase use and disposal.

Post Purchase Satisfaction:-
18
The buyer, S satisfaction is a function Of closeness between the buyer, S expectation
and the products Perceiver performance. The larger the gap between expectation and
performance, the greater the consumer dissatisfaction.
Post purchase Action:-
The Consumer, S satisfaction or dissatisfaction with the product influence subsequent
behavior. If the consumer satisfied, he or she will exhibit a higher probability of
purchasing the product again. Dissatisfaction consumer may abandon and return the
product.
Post-Purchase Use or Disposal:-
The marketer should also monitor new buyers use and
dispose of the product. If the consumer store the product in a close, the product is
probably not very satisfying. If the consumer throws the product away, the marketer
needs to know how they dispose of it; especially it can be hurt the environment.

Characteristic of Buyer Behaviors
The chief characteristics of the buyers behaviors are as
follow:-
(1)It consists of mental and physical activities which consumers undertake to get goods
and services and obtain satisfaction from them.
(2) It includes both observable activities such as walking through the market to examine
merchandise and making a purchase and mental activities-such as forming attitudes,
perceiving advertising material, and learning to prefer particular brands.

RESEARCH METHDOLOGY
 INTRODUCTION
 REASERCH DESIGN
 SOURCES OF DATA
 SAMPLING PLAN
 DATA COLLECTION METHOD

RESERCH METHODOLOGY
(A)Introduction
Marketing research is the function which links the
consumer, customer and public to the marketers through
22
information used to identify and define marketing, opportunities and problems,
generates refine marketing action; monitor marketing performance; and improve
understanding of marketing as a process.
Marketing research specifies the information required
to address these issues; designs the method for collection
information manages and implements the data collection process; analysis the results
and communication the findings and their implication.
(B)Research definition:
“Research is careful inquiry or examination to discover
new information and relationship and to expand and to verify exiting knowledge,”
Research always starts with questions or a problem. Its purpose is to find answer to
questions through the application of the scientific method. It is a systematic and
intensive study directed towards a more complete knowledge of the subject studies.

(B) Research design
“Research design is the plan, structure and strategy of
investigation conceived so as to obtain answer to research question and to control
variance.”
- BY KERLINGER
From definition it is evident that research design is more or less a blue print of research.
At the outset may be noted that there are several ways of Studying and tackling a
problem. There is no signal perfect design.
The research design can be classified in to true broad categories:
(A) Exploratory
(B) Descriptive
(C) Casual
Exploratory research is focus on the discovery of ideas.
Exploratory research is carried out to define problems and
developed hypothesis to test later. An exploratory study is
generally based on the secondary data that are reading available. It does not have to
change his focus of direction, depending on the availability of new ideas and
relationship among variables.
Descriptive studies are undertaken in many circumstances. Descriptive studies can be
complex, determining a high degree of scientific skill on the part of the researcher.
23

(D) Sources of Data
The sources of data collection methods are as follows.
a) Primary data :-
The primary data is that which details we collect first time
from the market and also used first time in the research. We also say that the
information is first time in the research decision. To collect the primary data
questionnaire is prepared structure non disguise questionnaire is prepared.
b) Secondary data :-
Secondary data are those data which are already collected by someone for some purpose
and are available for the present study; secondary data are already collected by the
company’s records and other library’s books. When the secondary data are sufficient,
the researcher has to be satisfied with the primary sources of data. Secondary data can
be used as bases for comparison with primary data have been collected by questionnaire.
The present study seeks to find out the consumers attitude
towards buying of bike. The study also aims at findings out the drawbacks of the
marketing set up of Hero Honda PVT. LTD. So this makes the study a descriptive
one.

Data Collection Method
Researcher instruments is the tool by which the researcher
can do research on specific problems or objective. The most
popular researcher instrument for collection data is
“Questionnaire” for a particular investigation. It is simple for a
moiled set of questions presented to respondents for their answers.
Due to this flexibility, it is most common instrument used to
collect the primary data. During the pre- testing of questionnaire, I seen the reaction of
respondents and suggestions required to make change in research instrument.
24
The questionnaire contains three types of questions.
( ) 1 Open-ended question :-
It is helpful in knowing what is uppermost in the mind of the
respondents. It gives complete freedom to the respondent.
(3) Dichotomous questions :-
It has only two answers in form ‘yes’ or ‘no’, ‘true’ or ‘false’,
‘use’ or ‘do not use’. So the respondent is offered two or more choice.
(4) Multiple-choice question :-
In this, the respondent is offered two or more choice.

Sampling plan
Sampling is a process of obtaining. The information about
the entire population by examine a part of it .The effectiveness of the research depends
on the sample size selected for the survey purpose.
(A) sample Site:-
The survey was conducted in Phagwara city.
(B)Sampling Unit:-
It means “Who is to be surveyed”. Here target population
is decided and it is who are interested to purchase “Bike” and sampling frame is
developed so that everyone in the target population has known chance of being sampled.
So the survey is conducted particularly in Phagwara City.
(C)Sample size:-
For the purpose of proper survey, there is need of perfect
research instruments to find out sample size for more accurate result about buying
behavior of bike. The sample size is 40 respondents.
Sampling Method:-
A Stratified random sample is one where the population is
divided in to mutually exhaustive strata or sub-group and then a simple random is
selected within each of strata on age groups, occupation etc. It may be noted that
stratification does not means absence of randomness. I use a simple random sampling
method.
