While sales of Honda Activa witnessed a decline of 19 per cent on YoY basis, the hot-selling automatic scooter retained its crown of being the top-selling scooter every month
Scooters have gained enough popularity in the two-wheeler market in the last few years, especially since the original Honda Activa first made it to the market. In fact, the Activa has been the highest-selling model in the scooter segment since time immemorial and maintained its numero uno position even last month.

The second spot has gone to the TVS Jupiter, which experienced a 5.1 per cent decline in its popularity. Last month, the automatic scooter from TVS found 56,254 buyers, which is a bit lower than the 59,279 units sold in June 2018. The third spot went to Suzuki Access, which witnessed a 28.77 growth in sales. Last month, the scooter sold 49,366 units, thereby marking a huge improvement over the 38,338 units sold in June 2018.
Honda Dio found itself on the 4th spot, with a total of 43,749 units sold last month. The stylish automatic scooter experienced a 7.39 per cent growth from 40,738 units sold in June 2018. The TVS Ntorq managed to capture the 5th sport, with a total of 21,738 units sold last month. This is a decent 26.36 per cent improvement from 17,203 units sold in June 2018.
