The top 10 2-wheeler sales for April 2017 list sees Honda making its foray into the top 5 with the CB Shine that outsold the Hero Passion for the first time ever.
Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India and Hero MotoCorp continue to dominate the top 10 bike sales chart for the month of April 2017 too with the Honda Activa at the number 1 position selling 3,12,632 units and leaving the Hero Splendor behind by a big margin.
Hero sold a total of 2,26,681 Splendors in April 2017, thereby falling behind by over 85,000 units. Hero has been consistently selling 2 lakh Splendors every month and it will be interesting to see what strategy will they adopt to increase the sales of the bike. The third position is still being held by Hero’s entry level commuter motorcycle, the HF Deluxe which sold 1,43,794 units in April.
For the first time ever, we get to witness another Honda product in the top 5 list and it’s the CB Shine that outsold the Hero Passion thereby clinching the fourth spot.
