Automotive sales across all segments and all OEMs have suffered a huge setback due to a low supply of semiconductor chips in recent months which has been a hindrance in production. The good thing to note is that sales are gradually improving as time passes by and supply of semiconductor chips normalises.

A total of 90,821 units of motorcycles with displacements between 150cc and 200cc were sold in India in September 2021. During the same period last year, this figure stood at 1,82,075 units which has resulted in a YoY decline of 50.12 percent. The good thing though is that MoM figures increased by 13.57 percent.

Apache Beats Pulsar By Fair Margin

The category was topped by the Apache range of sporty commuter motorcycles from TVS by a fair margin with a total monthly sales volume of 40,661 units as opposed to 37,788 units. This resulted in YoY growth of 7.60 percent. In August 2021, TVS dispatched a total of 16,423 units which has led to an MoM growth of 147.59 percent. It was followed by its closest nemesis Bajaj Pulsar with a volume of 14,785 units.

During September last year, Bajaj sold 46,041 units of Pulsar bikes which translates to a YoY decline of almost 68 percent. In August, the Chakan-based bikemaker sold 28,927 units of Pulsar which led to an MoM decline of 49 percent. The latest entrant to this list is the new-gen Yamaha R15 which generated a volume of 11,792 units in September this year as opposed to 9,590 units registered the previous month.
