Suzuki Two Wheelers posted a marginal de-growth in domestic sales while exports grew 45.77 percent in November 2021
Two wheeler sales in India are on the decline over past several months. Rising fuel prices, an overall dismal scenario across the segment and increased impetus to the electric two wheeler segment has resulted in lower sales of petrol powered two wheelers. Shortage of semi-conductors has also had an impact on production of premium bikes.
