Top ten selling bikes in May 2016 saw Bajaj V15 keeping its momentum going for the successive months
Hero MotoCorp is the number one two-wheeler brand in the Indian market and last month it has reassured its dominance once again. Having four models and all of them in the top four means, the largest Indian bike maker has been constantly delivering what the customer wants. The targeted buyers for the Hero motorcycles are in the affordable space and Hero never seems to be disappointing them.
The leader of the motorcycle segment is inevitably the no-frills Splendor bike. With the selling figure of 2,07,010 units in May 2016, it’s the only bike to have crossed the two lakh mark and is way ahead of its closest competitor and stable mate, the HF Deluxe. With only half as much Splendor managed to garner, the HF Deluxe finished second with 1,12,273 units.
