A lot of 2-wheelers have seen a slump in sales but the Bajaj Platina has seen massive growth!
Another month and the results seem more or less the same with the Hero Splendor outnumbering the Honda Activa in sales but since the above table is self explanatory, let’s look at some of the popular models to see how they fared.
Starting with Hero, the Splendor continues its magic run and scooters are doing decent numbers too, although not even close to the segment leader. The Xtreme 200R and XPulse 200T managed to sell 837 and 2674 units respectively.
Honda too continues its dream run with the Activa but some of their new experiments haven’t worked like the Navi and Cliq. The company also discontinued the CB Unicorn 160 recently while the Unicorn 150 managed to find 27,249 buyers. The recently launched CB300R sold 80 units, quite low for a new model. The Aviator (5592 units sold) and Grazia (10,388) aren’t selling in great numbers but the Dio is managing decent sales at 43,479 units sold last month. The CB Hornet 160R sold just 3112 units, a fifth of the segment leading FZ V3.
Moving on to Bajaj Auto, it’s quite evident that the Discover has lost its spark, sales have been dwindling although the Platina and CT 100 are doing decent numbers. The Pulsar 150 continues to rake in the numbers while the age-old Pulsar 220 soldiers on with 7408 units sold last month. The Dominar 400 managed to sell 2044 units, the update seem to have worked for the company’s flagship motorcycle.
KTM on the other hand has found good number of buyers for its commuter bikes in sporty clothing (the 125s!) with them selling 2108 units, even the Duke 200 is managing good numbers at 1891 units last month while the Duke 250 and Duke/RC 390 managed 570 and 355 units respectively.
Meanwhile, Suzuki’s Gixxer sold just 2658 units and the Burgman Street managed 4781 units, it’s only the Access which is doing well for the Japanese brand, even the Intruder isn’t selling with just 190 units sold last month. Deliveries of the Gixxer 250 haven’t been done last month.
TVS too is getting its top sales from scooters like the Jupiter (56,254 units) and the XL 100 (52,253), the Apache saw a decline in sales at 37,967 units while the RR 310 managed 338 units. The NTorq is doing decently at 21,738 units sold last month.
Update to the FZ has helped Yamaha keep the lead in the segment but the bike has seen a decline in sales at 15,880 units. The R15 continues to perform well with almost 5000 units sold last month while the similarly priced FZ25 managed just 827 units, the MT 15 outsold it at 1368 units.
Except the Himalayan, all Royal Enfield bikes posted a negative growth last month with the bread and butter Classic 350 now at 33,790 units which is a decline of 33% when compared to an year ago. The 650 Twins managed 1751 units which is great considering the price point. Kawasaki’s top-selling model was the Ninja 300 with 110 units sold with the Z900 and ZX-10R following closely at 52 and 37 units respectively.
