In comparison, 5,12,541 units were registered during the corresponding month last year. The gap between Hero MotoCorp and Honda 2Wheelers India has certainly come down but can the latter keep the momentum this way? It will have to be waited and seen. Honda has the Activa as its top-selling two-wheeler in the country for a very long time.

Hero, on the other hand, has the Splendor entry-level commuter motorcycle as its bestseller. As for the exports, the brand saw a volume increase of 200 per cent to 25,190 units in July 2021 as against 7,563 units during the same period last year. The company recently expanded its global presence as it started retail sales in Mexico.
