The table of top 10 selling scooters in February 2019 saw TVS Jupiter regaining its second position from Suzuki Access but only by a narrow margin
The second month of 2019 witnessed Honda Activa comfortably sitting on top on against as far as scooter sales are concerned with 2,05,239 units. However, it was at a deficit of 17 per cent compared to the same month last year. TVS Motor Company’s Jupiter got back to its regular second position from Suzuki Access – the best-selling 125 cc scooter in India.
Suzuki Access 125 recorded a massive 44 per cent sales growth in January 2019 as 54,524 units were sold against 37,783 units in the corresponding month in 2018 to beat Jupiter for the first time. The Jupiter did claw black to its place last month and recorded 48,688 units as it overtook Access with a narrow lead of 423 units despite 23 per cent YoY decline.
Every other position in the top ten sales chart for scooters remained the same compared to January barring the re-entry of Yamaha’s Ray that eliminated TVS Pep+ and relegated Hero Maestro to the bottom. Honda sold more than 45,000 units of the Dio last month with 8 per cent sales leap for the fourth position.
|S.No||Top 10 Selling Scooters In February 2019||Number Of Units|
|5.||Hero Destini 125||24,018|
Hero MotoCorp launched the Destini 125 in October 2018 and it is safe to say that its popularity has steadily been increasing over the months. After entering the top ten table in December 2018, the scooter with first-ever i3S ideal stop/stop system continued to remain fifth last month as well by registering a total of 24,018 units.
TVS’ Ntorq 125 recorded 16,370 unit sales with a massive sales boost of 97 per cent in February 2019 to finish sixth and it along with Destini and Access underlines the customers’ increasing preference of 125 cc scooter. Hero had three scooters in the top ten as Pleasure ended up seventh with 15,264 units and Maestro tenth with 10,223 unit sales.
Yamaha’s scooter sales have largely been driven Fascino in recent times as it slotted in at eighth ahead of Ray with 14,939 units. It was the only scooter in the brand’s lineup to post positive YoY growth of 16 per cent last month. During the course of this year, we can expect manufacturers to introduce new scooters and the Activa 6G could be one of them.
