Yamaha Motor India was the only volume-based two-wheeler manufacturer in the country to record positive sales growth in July 2020 as 49,989 units were registered against 47,918 units during the corresponding period last year with 4.3 per cent Year-on-Year sales increase. It had a market share of 3.90 per cent – 0.73 per cent more compared to July 2019.
The Japanese manufacturer has the Fascino, Ray ZR and FZ as its top-selling models in India in recent times, and the trio did help in the brand posting a decent sales growth last month.

The Fascino was the second most sold scooter within Yamaha’s range last month as 11,584 units were recorded against 12,984 units during the same period in 2019 with Year-on-Year sales de-growth of 11 per cent. The Ray ZR fared better as 12,032 units were registered against 9,272 units with 30 per cent volume increase.
