Honda Activa recorded 2,12,164 units in November 2019 to continue its dominance as the most sold scooter in the country
Honda continued to lead the scooter space in November 2019 courtesy of Activa as it managed a total of 2,12,164 units in November 2019 as against 2,18,212 units during the same month last year with a marginal decline of 3 per cent. Just as the Activa for Honda, Suzuki’s volume sales aspiration in the scooter space relies on the Access.
The Access 125 had another impressive month last time out as 49,128 units were sold. The Japanese manufacturer registered Year-on-Year sales growth of 16 per cent as 42,334 units were retailed in November 2018. Coming in at third was Honda’s Dio as 42,481 units were sold against 38,484 units during the corresponding month in 2018.
This led to YoY sales increase of 10 per cent. The Dio pipped TVS Motor Company’s Jupiter by a narrow margin of just 1,474 units. The Jupiter had a tough month though as 41,007 units were recorded against 69,391 units in November 2018 with a massive sales slump of 41 per cent as it finished ahead of Ntorq 125.
