Top 10 selling scooters In November 2016 witnessed Activa and Jupiter locking down top positions once again while Yamaha Ray recorded a massive leap of 145%
Despite the demonetisation effects, Honda Activa recorded almost similar sales in November 2016 to what it managed a year ago. Despite having its position up the top unrattled in the scooter segment, Activa did concede its overall industry bestselling honour back to the Hero Splendor. With 1,80,811 examples sold last month, the Activa registered thrice more than sales of second-placed Jupiter could.
In somewhat similar fashion to the Activa, Jupiter’s sales has seen only 6 percent increase as 54,838 units were sold in November 2016 compared to the same month last year with 51,768. Slotting in at third was the Hero Maestro which suffered 26 percent YoY sales slump as 26,320 examples were delivered against 35,672 last November.

Suzuki’s only top-running scooter in the Indian market is the Access. Standing true to its brand popularity, the Access registered 92 percent sales growth as 24,825 units were sold when compared to just 12,959 in the corresponding month a year back. At fifth position, the Hero Duet has kept its consistency going as 16,741 units were sold against 18,240 comparatively.
Yamaha has two products to boast about that regularly find their ways into top ten. One is the Ray at sixth position as it swept 14,844 units last month at a massive surge of 145 percent. Meanwhile, the Fascino scooter lined up in eighth as it sold almost identical units to last November with 13,019 deliveries.
Rounding out the top ten were the Hero Pleasure and TVS Pep+ as 10,349 and 7,292 units were sold respectively. Considering the OEMs, Hero MotoCorp was well on top overall ahead of Honda but both had to bear the consequences of demonetisation with 13 and 4 percent sales slump. However, the worst case scenario went to Mahindra 2 Wheelers as its YoY sales was dented by a humongous 90 percent.
