Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India remains the second largest two-wheeler manufacturer in the country in November with a market share of 26%. However, YoY sales are down -5.26%, from 4,18,367 units in November last year to 3,96,366 units in November 2019. Some drop in sales was expected, as the market cools down after the festive rush witnessed in October.
Honda’s top selling two-wheeler is Activa that has registered sales of 2,12,164 units in November. This translates into YoY loss of -3%, as against 2,18,212 units sold in November last year. It may be recalled that Honda had launched Activa 125 cc BS6 earlier this year to become the first BS6 compliant scooter in the country. BS6 Activa comes with a range of new features and cosmetic updates.
Second bestselling Honda two-wheeler is CB Shine, which has registered sales of 75,144 units in November. This translates into 6% YoY growth, as against 70,803 units old in same period last year. Only four Honda two-wheelers have registered positive YoY growth in November and CB Shine is one of them. The other three are Dio, Livo and Grazia.
In terms of sale volumes, Dio takes the third place with sales of 42,481 units in November. This translates into 10% YoY growth, as against 38,484 units sold in same period last year. Dio also happens to be the most exported scooter from India. Next in the list is Livo with sales of 12,537 units. At 29% YoY growth, Livo has registered max gains among all Honda two-wheelers.
At fifth spot is Honda Dream with sales of 8,748 units. Sales have almost halved, as against 16,734 units sold in November last year. Next on the list is Grazia, which continues to register consistent sales. In November 2019, 8,167 units were sold, which translates into 26% YoY growth, as against 6,467 units sold in November last year. Grazia has the second best YoY growth among all Honda two-wheelers in November.
At seventh spot is CB Unicorn, which appears to be losing its grip on the market. YoY sales have declined a massive -67%, from 23,402 units in November last year to 7,672 units last month. Next we have CB HORNET 160R, which has registered -36% drop in sales. As compared to 4,000 units sold in November last year, only 2,578 units were sold last month.
At ninth and tenth spot, we have Aviator and X Blade with sales of 1,899 units and 1,872 units, respectively. While Aviator has registered -39% drop in YoY sales, X Blade has lost -40%. Next on the list is CB300R with sales of 18 units in November 2019. Africa Twin managed to sell just one unit, which amounts to loss of -75%, as against four units sold in November last year. Remaining Honda two-wheelers did not manage to sell even a single unit.
