Top 10 Selling Bikes in March 2017 witnessed Hero Splendor reassuring its leading position over HF Deluxe and Passion
In the Indian two-wheeler industry, Hero Splendor has managed to dominate at the top position yet again on the list of monthly bestselling chart for March 2017. At a decent growth of 8 percent compared to the same month last year with 2,25,348 units of sale, the Splendor bettered its nearest rival the HF Deluxe by nearly one lakh units.
At second position, the HF Deluxe endured an appreciable 23 percent growth last month with 1,37,712 units. The Passion motorcycle ensured top three for Hero as it outshone the highly capable CB Shine. With a sales increase of just 3 percent over the same period in 2016, the Glamour’s surge did come at the same time when CB Shine encountered a massive 44 percent growth in numbers with 68,328 deliveries.
|Top 10 Selling Bikes In March 2017||Number Of Units|
|1. Hero Splendor||2,25,348|
|2. Hero HF Deluxe||1,37,712|
|3. Hero Passion||85,166|

|8. Bajaj Platina||31,257|
|9. TVS Apache||27,580|
|10. Bajaj CT 100||27,236|
Although comparing both the commuters show the Passion with de-growth of 21 percent, it seems to have the momentum over CB Shine when we deeply evaluate the sales chart in the last fiscal. Royal Enfield is enjoying a great deal of success in recent past and the Classic 350 stands in the heart of it.
In March 2017, the retro bike garnered a total sales of 39,973 units at a stunning 38 percent growth to finish the sales chart in sixth position behind the Glamour. Royal Enfield’s volume turner, the Classic 350, moved up the order to sixth and its dominance in the midsize category has not been put under threat with the arrival of Bajaj Dominar 400 as expected.
Bajaj’s Pulsar 150 has stayed put its stronghold over the Apache series as 33,470 units were sold against the latter’s 27,580 figures. Sandwiching them was the Bajaj Platina which encountered only nearly half the sales it had endured previously in March 2016 with 31,257 units. Wrapping the top 10 was the Bajaj CT100 with 27,236 units despite a de-growth of 51 percent.
