Hero Splendor 100 Million Edition

Hero Splendor finished on top of the sales table with 2,67,821 units in the month of October 2021; Honda Activa and Hero HF Deluxe finished second and third respectively

In the month of October 2021, Hero MotoCorp’s Splendor finished on top of the two-wheeler sales charts as 2,67,821 units were sold. This when compared to the same period in 2020 with 3,15,798 units, a YoY negative sales growth of 15.1 per cent was seen. The Honda Activa was the second most sold two-wheeler in the country and continued to top the scooter sales table.

The Japanese scooter posted 1,96,699 units in the month of October 2021 as against 2,39,570 units during the corresponding period twelve months ago with a 17.8 per cent drop in volumes. Except for Bajaj Platina, all the other two-wheelers in the top ten sales table recorded negative YoY growth despite the festive season.

One of the key reasons for the sales drop has to be the lack of semiconductor supply hampering the production across the automotive industry. The Hero HF Deluxe finished in the third position with 1,64,311 units last month as against 2,33,061 units during the same period twelve months ago with a YoY volume de-growth of 29.5 per cent.
