Hero Splendor managed to beat Honda Activa and became the most sold two-wheeler in November 2019 with 2,23,289 units
The domestic two-wheeler industry is going through a rough patch since the beginning of this calendar year and the sales numbers have been on the downward curve more often than not. In November 2019, Hero MotoCorp’s Splendor finished on top of the overall two-wheeler standings with a total of 2,23,289 units.
Compared to the same month in 2018, the difference was only marginal as the entry-level commuter got the better of Honda Activa once again by posting just over 11,000 units in addition. The top-selling scooter in the country did see a noticeable fall last month on YoY basis as 2,12,164 units were retailed against 2,18,212 units.
The HF Deluxe slotted in at third position with a domestic tally of 1,59,544 units as against 1,68,839 units during the corresponding month last year with a deficit of 9,295 units. Honda’s CB Shine is another consistent performer bringing in volumes for the Japanese manufacturer and it finished ahead of Pulsar in the fourth position with 75,144 units.
