Performance bike sales were a mixed bag July 2021

The performance bike sales chart for July 2021 shows just how dominant the 650 twins from Royal Enfield are in the segment.

While the middleweight machines have the lowest power figure in the group listed above, the fact that they are also the most affordable bikes of this lot works in their favour.

A total of 811 units of the Interceptor 650 and Continental GT 650, combined, got sold in July 2021, while second-placed Kawasaki Z900 found 44 new takers.

Suzuki India delivered 31 units of the new generation Hayabusa in July, while Honda sold 27 units of its 650R twins during the same period.
