The list of top 10 selling scooters in November 2018 saw Hero Destini 125 making an entry by outselling Pleasure and Duet
Last month, the top 7 positions in the chart remained the same as the previous month. The significant addition being Hero Destini 125 that disposed TVS Pep+ from top 10. The flagship Hero scooter made its presence felt in November 2018 by slotting in at eighth ahead of the long running Pleasure and Duet from the brand’s stable.
At the top, the Activa continued to reign supreme with 2,18,212 units but Honda endured 8.8 percent YoY sales de-growth overall. The Activa had a tough month as well with a deficit of more than 44,000 units when compared to October 2018, despite maintaining YoY difference at just negative 3 percent.

|8.||Hero Destini 125||16,047|
The Activa was recently announced to have gone past two crore sales mark – more than half of that total figure was reached in the last three years underlining its dominance. The Activa’s main competitor, TVS Jupiter, maintained its usual second position last month with 69,391 units at 11 percent YoY sales increase.
Contrary to Honda, TVS Motor Company registered a massive 28.1 percent sales surge cumulatively. The Ntorq 125 played a significant role in TVS’ good run and it garnered 20,715 units in November 2018 to finish sixth in the table. Suzuki’s only scooter in the top 10, the Access, distanced itself from Honda’s Dio by nearly 4,000 units for third with total of 42,334.
The long-serving Dio, on the other hand, sold 15,204 more units than Hero’s Maestro. Yamaha’s youthful 110 cc Fascino scooter has always been in the second half of the table and it was no different last month as 16,117 units were retailed for seventh position. Hero MotoCorp’s launched the Destini 125 in October with i3S start/stop technology for high fuel efficiency.
Its impact can now be seen for the first time as it outsold Pleasure and Duet for eighth with 16,047 units. With several scooters expected to launch in the entry-level premium space, 2019 could well be another year of scooters trading blow with motorcycles for volume supremacy in the Indian market.
