Almost all the two-wheelers show positive movement while there was mixed news for Honda as the Hornet grew significantly but the Unicorn 160 suffered the worst times.
December like every year was harsh for all the automakers and January came with a bliss of positive figures on the sales chart for almost all the 150cc bikes. The Bajaj Pulsar continues to top the sales chart with 33,183 units compared to the 25,794 units in December.
Following is the TVS Apache RTR 160 and 180 with a sale of 20,858 units which is not too far from the 20,599 units of December. The Yamaha FZ continues to be in the third place but the sales have increased by 58.89 percent with a sale of 19,059 units compared to the 11,995 units of December.
The newly launched Bajaj Avenger 150 is also doing wonders with a growth of 70.26 percent from 9234 units in December to 15,722 units in January, the buyers are quite impressed with the styling. However, the showstopper is the Honda CB Hornet 160R with a sales growth of 175.25 percent and a sale of 13,135 units last month against the mere 4772 units of December, this growth is a gift of the excellent power delivery and aggressive design of the bike.
The Suzuki Gixxer registered a sale of 6505 units while the Yamaha R15 also enjoyed a growth of 45.45 percent by selling 3584 units. Closely following is the Hero Achiever with a sale of 3527 units while the next to come is the Hero Hunk with a 92.56 percent growth which sold 2174 units. People are slowly accepting the Yamaha SZ that has clocked a sale of 2125 units which is impressive when we look at the 778 units of December.
The Hero Xtreme, on the other hand, is losing popularity and has registered a sale of just 1408 units while the Honda CBR150R is constant in its place with a sale of 652 units. The age-old Bajaj Discover is also among the losers and could only manage to sell 140 units in January. The CB Unicorn 160 is in the worst place while the sales have gone down from 523 units in December to 52 units in January.
