Hero MotoCorp had an impressive July 2020 as it had the least sales de-growth out of all the manufacturers and sat at the top of the volume charts while the second-place Honda posted a massive 32 per cent volume decrease. The brand also had four motorcycles in the top ten and two scooters in the top ten of that respective segment.
The Splendor was the most sold two-wheeler in the country while the HF Deluxe finished second as the Honda Activa was pushed to the third spot. The entry-level commuter registered a total of more than 2,13,000 units when the regular and Super Splendor models were combined with both encountering positive YoY sales growths.
