Hero Splendor posted 1,00,435 units in May 2021 as against 1,93,508 units with 48.1 per cent MoM volume de-growth

In the month of May 2021, Hero MotoCorp’s Splendor sat on top of the sales charts but the two-wheeler industry as a whole endured negative sales growth due to the unfavourable circumstances prevailing in the country. The entry-level commuter posted 1,00,435 units last month as against 1,93,508 units during the previous month of April 2021.

This led to a Month-on-Month de-growth of 48.1 per cent. Its subling, the Hero HF Deluxe, came in at second with 42,118 units sales as against 71,294 units during the previous month of April 2021 with 40.9 per cent negative volume growth. The Bajaj Pulsar stood in at the third position with 39,625 units as against 66,586 units with 40.4 per cent slump.

The Pulsar series was recently expanded with the introduction of the NS125 while new colour schemes were also added to the lineup. The Pulsar range’s main rival from TVS Motor Company, the Apache, finished in the fourth position with 19,885 units as against 29,458 units with 32.5 per cent Month-on-Month volume de-growth.
