2 Wheeler Sales July 200
Splendor saw a good sales spike despite the COVID-19 crisis

If there is one thing that the July 2020 2-wheeler sales list shows, it is that the Indian market has the ability to rebound within months after first being hit by a crisis, one that is still ongoing.

Topping the list is the Hero Splendor, with over 1.59 lakh units reaching customers and more importantly, a growth of 22 percent Year-Over-Year (YOY). Hero’s HF Deluxe is next in the top 25 list, with nine percent reduction in sales at 1,54,142 units as opposed to 1,69,632 units sold during the same period last year.

One other vehicle that crossed the one lakh mark is the Honda Activa, with over 1.18 lakh units sold. This is, however, a whopping 51 percent sale drop in comparison with July 2019.

Honda’s CB Shine clocked 88,969 units, while TVS XL Super, Hero Super Splendor and Glamour all sold over 50,000 units. Following them are the TVS Jupiter (48,995 units), Hero Passion (44,377 units) and rounding the top 10 is the Honda Dio with 37,233 units sold in July 2020.

When it comes to the biggest loser in the July 2020 2-wheeler sales, strictly sticking to only the top 25 list, is the Suzuki Access which saw more than half its sales vanish YOY.

The biggest winner on the other hand was the TVS Apache motorcycle that sold 33,664 units (13th in the list), which is a 34 percent jump over July 2019 sales, where it clocked 25,094 units.

Other notable vehicles in the list include the Royal Enfield’s Classic 350 that could muster 25,534 unit (-13 percent YOY), Pulsar 150 and 125 series bikes from Bajaj that sold 30,582 times (-32 percent) and 30,217 times, respectively.

It was a dismal outing for Yamaha in July 2020, since three of the last five 2-wheelers in the list are from the Japanese manufacturer’s range. The FZ sold 15,048 units (8 percent increase), while the Ray and Fascino complete the list with 12,032 and 11,584 units sold.

In all, there are 15 motorcycles in the list, nine scooters and a sole moped from TVS. Overall 2-wheeler sales in the month of July 2020, on the other hand, saw only 15 percent sales drop YOY, with 12.81 lakh units sold.
