Top 10 selling scooters in March 2017 saw Honda Activa dominating once again by registering close to 2,40,000 units ahead of TVS Jupiter
As the two-wheeler sector recovered from demonetisation effects, Honda Activa recorded a 9 percent sales increase in March 2017. Besides having its position up the top unrattled in the scooter segment, Activa did not concede its overall industry bestselling honour back to the Hero Splendor either as 2,39,339 units were retailed last month. Its sales numbers were nearly four times as much as what the second-placed Jupiter managed.
In a dissimilar fashion to the Activa, Jupiter’s sales has seen a massive 26 percent YoY increase as 60,202 units were sold in March 2017 compared to the same month last year with 47,955. Slotting in at third was the Hero Maestro which endured 4 percent growth as 42,103 examples were delivered against 40,388 last March.

Suzuki’s only top-running scooter in the Indian market is the Access. Standing true to its brand popularity, the Access registered 147 percent sales bump as 28,151 units were sold when compared to just 11,387 in the corresponding month a year back. At fifth position, the Yamaha Fascino has kept its popularity intact as 22,830 units were sold against 18,597 comparatively with 23 percent growth.
Yamaha has two products to boast about that regularly find their ways into top ten. Other than the Fascino, the Ray is just behind at sixth position as it swept 18,833 units last month at a massive surge of 161 percent. The other two products from Hero’s stable were the Duet and Pleasure in sixth and seventh position respectively.
With very little to choose between them, the Duet recorded 14,482 units and Pleasure with 13,402. Rounding out the top ten were the Honda Aviator and TVS Pep+ as 10,277 and 10,238 units were sold respectively. Elsewhere, the last month of the FY2016-17 witnessed the premium Aprilia SR 150 bettering Vespa once again while Mahindra scooters suffered up to 90 percent de-growth.
