Taking a look at the sales numbers of September 2015, the Hero Splendor has been able to claim the top spot once again while most others have gained numbers.
September has been a good month for most two-wheeler manufacturers. Almost all the vehicles featuring on the top 20 sellers chart have gained numbers over the previous month showing that the industry witnessed a surge in demand. The Hero Splendor has been able to claim back the top spot from the Honda Activa which was at the top since a few months. This can be attributed to the dispatch of updated bikes of the Splendor range being dispatched to dealers as the bikes were launched a few days ago.
The next few positions have remained similar to the last month with all the bikes and scooters witnessing a slight increase in demand. One noticeable change is the sudden jump of the Bajaj CT 100 from ninth position to 6th position with sales increasing by more than 50%. The reason for this remains unknown. Sales of the Pulsar series has also grown by over 25% which shows that the new launches are attracting more customers. The TVS Apache is the only bike on the chart which witnessed a slight dip in sales.
Scooters like the Hero Maestro and the Honda Dio have performed well too for the respective brands. The former was launched in a new and edgier variant earlier this month and was christened the Maestro Edge. Talking of scooters, the Suzuki Access has not been able to make it to the chart this month and sales have fallen. Commuter bikes like the Bajaj Platina and the TVS Star City have also witnessed a rise in sales due to positive market sentiments.
A bike which has made an exit from the chart is the Honda CB Unicorn 160. Even after being a very capable bike, it has been overshadowed by various other products which sell in more numbers. However, the spot it emptied has been occupied by another Honda bike in the form of the Livo. Launched recently, the Livo is an excellent option for someone considering a commuter bike. The Bajaj Discover has also appeared towards the end of the chart.
