Top 10 selling scooters in October 2016 encountered Yamaha Ray recording a phenomenal 194 percent YoY sales rise
Honda Activa continued its dominance in the Indian scooter industry as 2,50,681 units were recorded in the month of October 2016. The significance of the nimble scooter for the Japanese brand can be explained by the fact that more than half of Honda’s total sales last month came courtesy of the Activa. Helping Honda to reach 8.91 percent growth, the Activa saw 6 percent YoY for itself.
TVS Motor Company’s Jupiter was positioned at second place. Despite registering one-fourth of Activa’s total sales, the Jupiter managed to keep a sizeable gap to its nearest rivals. The Hero Maestro encountered a massive fall of 32 percent as 45,018 deliveries were made against 65,786 units in the same month last year.

Honda’s adroitness in attracting young customers through the Dio doesn’t seem to have faded away as it secured fourth position last month with a YoY growth of 45 percent with 34,872 units. The only Suzuki scooter in the top ten was the Access which put on a good show last month as 25,871 examples were retailed at a massive YoY growth of 57 percent.
The bottom half of top ten features two Yamaha products namely the Ray and Fascino. While Fascino’s popularity stayed intact just as in last October with 20,040 units, Ray ensured sixth position with 24,628 examples. However, in comparison it witnessed a phenomenal surge of 194 percent as only 8,376 units were delivered in October 2015.
