Hero Splendor back on top – Best selling 2 wheelers in Oct 2016

Hero Splendor was once again the best-selling two wheeler in India. This win came after a long time. To be precise, it is after 9 months that the Hero Splendor has managed to beat sales of Honda Activa. Sales of Hero Splendor for October 2016 stood at 2,54,813 units as against 2,50,681 units registered by Honda Activa.

Speaking about overall sales this fiscal, Splendor still trails Honda Activa. If Hero Splendor sales do not improve over the next few months, Honda Activa will become the best selling two wheeler for the first time (over a fiscal year).

Last fiscal, Hero Splendor managed to register sales of 2,486,065 units, 1.2 percent lower than what they sold in the same period of the previous year (2,517,189 units). Honda Activa claimed a second position with sales at 2,466,350 units, up 13 percent as compared to 2,178,227 units in FY15. With less than 20,000 units separating Hero Splendor from Honda Activa, a new leader in FY17 could be in the offing.
