Although both the commuters are closer to each other, Glamour seems to have the momentum as CB Shine registered 45,236 units which were over 16,000 lesser than what it could wrap in November 2015. No so far away from CB Shine was the Platina as the entry-level motorcycle recorded a massive 76 percent growth.
It did overtake Hero Passion in the process for fifth position as 42,395 examples were retailed against Passion’s 40,272 at a whopping 53 percent YoY sales slump. Royal Enfield’s volume turner, the Classic 350 moved up the order to seventh with 60 percent sales spike but its dominance in the midsize category will be put under threat with the arrival of Bajaj Dominar 400 as the first months of 2017 will make for an interesting competition between these fierce rivals.
Bajaj’s Pulsar 150 has stayed put its stronghold over the Apache series as 32,788 units were sold against the latter’s 21,449 figures. Sandwiching them was the CT100 which encountered only half the sales it had endured previously in November 2015 with 21,565 units.
