The overall two-wheeler sales volume stood at 7,51,554 units in June 2020 as against 11,32,030 units with 33.6 per cent de-growth
The two-wheeler industry is definitely on a path to recovery but the transition phase appears to be only gradual and we can expect the volume numbers to further improve during the festive season when the buying sentiments will largely be positive. In June 2020, the big guns continued to post good sales tally but they were not as close to how they used to be.
The Splendor entry-level commuter motorcycle led the way ahead of HF Deluxe as the sales of Honda’s Activa were only good enough for third position in the month of June 2020. The Splendor garnered a total of 1,80,266 units as against 2,42,743 units during the same period the previous year with Year-on-Year decline of 25.7 per cent.
Another affordable commuter from Hero, the HF Deluxe, registered a total of 1,29,602 units last month as against 1,93,194 units during the corresponding period in 2019 with YoY volume decline of 32.92 per cent. The Activa stood third by recording 1,21,668 units and when compared to the same month one year ago, the YoY drop was at a massive 48.6 per cent.
