Amid the resurgence of COVID-19 cases in India, the second wave has slowed the overall growth of the Indian auto industry. After the devastating fiscal year of 2020, another collision course arrived with Wave 2.
The global auto market suffers another loss as overall motorcycle sales declined in April 2021. Likewise, two-wheeled scooter sales also fell sharply. Honda’s Activa remained at the top of the list. The company sold 1,09,678 units in April 2021. While if we see the monthly growth data, there has been a drastic drop, as previously Honda sold 199,208 units of Activa scooters in March 2021. In the event of second place on the list it was taken over by the Suzuki Access 125 at 53,285 units. Earlier, a month, March 2021, Suzuki sold 48,672 units. TVS sold 25,570 units of Jupiter scooters last month compared to 57,206 units of scooters sold in March. In fourth and fifth places are respectively TVS Ntorq and Hero Pleasure +.
After the Activa, Dio is the second best-selling Honda scooter in India. Dio takes sixth place with 17,269 units sold in April 2021. In seventh, eighth and ninth places are the Hero Destini 125, Suzuki Burgman Street and TVS Scooty Pep + scooters.
While Yamaha only has one scooter on the list in the form of RayZR which stood at 7,512 unit sales in April 2021.
