Suzuki sold a total of 49,875 units of the Access 125 in March 2019 leaving all its rivals far behind in terms of sales figures
When all the other two-wheeler manufacturers including some big names like Honda struggled, Suzuki Motorcycles India registered an impressive 25.3 per cent growth in March 2019 and finished the FY 2018-19 on a positive note. In the domestic market, Suzuki sold a total of 58,696 units of their two-wheelers in March 2019 compared to 46,848 units in the corresponding period last year.
The FY 2018-2019 has also been an important year for Suzuki because they reached a new milestone by rolling out four millionth vehicle from their Gurgaon, Haryana plant as well.
We already informed you earlier that March 2019 has not been a good year for the scooter manufacturers of India, especially for Honda.
Honda sells an average of 2 to 2.5 lakh units of their popular scooter Activa almost every month. In March 2019, the Japanese two-wheeler giant sales declined by almost 47%. The decline in sales number has also resulted in them losing their No 2 spot in the two-wheeler industry to TVS Motor Company.
Suzuki, on the other hand, sold a total of 49,875 units of their popular 125cc scooter Access in March 2019 compared to 36,555 units in the corresponding month last year registering a growth of 36 per cent. With that impressive sales numbers, the Access 125 once again became the highest grossing product for Suzuki in India.
Their recently introduced premium 125 cc offering Burgman Street, on the other hand, sold 8,250 units in March 2019. The Access 125 was able to beat its closest rival the Hero Motocorp Destini 125, Honda Grazia and the TVS Ntorq by a fair margin last month. Hero Motocorp managed to sell 22,564 units of their newly introduced 125 scooter Destini in March 2019.
TVS Motors, on the other hand, sold a total of 18,557 units of the Ntorq while Honda managed to sell only 2,262 units of the Grazia last month. That said, for those of you who are not aware the Suzuki Access is powered by a 124 cc, air-cooled unit which produces around 8.7 bhp of peak power and 10.2 Nm of torque. Although Suzuki has not given any significant updates to their 125 cc scooter in India recently, it still manages to clock impressive sales numbers every month.
