Honda Activa is the nation’s favourite scooter while Hero Splendor is the country’s most preferred motorcycle. Hence, this is clearly a battle between bikes and scooters, and the latter has been gaining traction in recent years.
In the month of March 2015, 207,270 units of Honda Activa nameplate have been sold, leaving the scooter to claim the title “No. 1 selling two wheeler in India”. Splendor following as close second, is not really so close, as only 1,95,433 units were sold in the same period.
