Metallic Pearl White Pulsar NS 200 Burnout

Hero Splendor was the most sold two-wheeler in the country in the April-September 2020 period with 9,48,228 unit sales

The Indian two-wheeler industry has seen increasing sales volumes over the last three to four months as the recovery is nothing short of brilliant from the health crisis. Capitalising on the positive buying sentiments among customers, the brands are offering attractive discounts, new trims levels, special editions and lucrative financial schemes during this festive season as well.

In the first six months of the current financial year (April to September 2020 period), it is understandable to see massive Year-on-Year volume decline amongst the manufacturers as the factory shutdown for nearly three months and the no sales regime have taken its toll. Hero MotoCorp’s Splendor finished as the most sold two-wheeler in H1 FY2021.

The entry-level commuter motorcycle garnered a total of 9,48,228 units during this period as against 13,70,138 units during the same time last FY with 30.7 per cent sales decline. The Activa ended up second with a sizeable gap compared to the Splendor as 7,19,914 units were dispatched as against 13,93,256 units in April to September 2019 period.
