Even though Apache and FZ offer a tough fight, they are no match to Pulsar sales in June 2022
June 2022 has been a good month for motorcycle sales in general. If we take a look at top 200cc – 500cc sales chart and 500cc+ motorcycle sales charts, both segments have seen positive growth. But the 150cc – 200cc segment generally garners more sales than the above-mentioned segments. Let’s take a look.
Cumulative sales of Pulsar series reach 31,778 units in June 2022 and see a 12.12 YoY growth over 28,343 units sold in June 2021. Even impressive, is a 148.09% MoM growth over just 12,809 units sold in May 2022. Pulsar currently holds 31.41% market share in June 2022 which used to be 14.52% last month. This hike seems to be due to the newly launched N160.

Yamaha FZ saw 19,305 units sold in June 2022 over 11,084 units sold in June 2021 and 15,068 units sold in May 2022.

Honda has four bikes on this list. Unicorn 160 at 9th place, X Blade at 10th place, CB200X at 12th place and Hornet 2.0 at 14th place. Even though Unicorn 160 and X Blade record highest-in-the-list 671% and 901% YoY growth respectively, all of them register a dip in sales. Unicorn 160 sees 39.16%, X Blade sees 40.03%, CB200X sees 78.41% and Hornet 2.0 saw 94.50% dip in sales in June 2022 over May 2022.
KTM, Suzuki Sales
This leaves us with KTM and Suzuki. KTM’s 200cc bikes have sold only 767 units in June 2022 with a 45.37% drop YoY and 35.92% MoM as they sold 1,404 units in June 2021 and 1,197 units in May 2022. Coming to Suzuki, Gixxer 155 sold only 144 units in June 2022 while Intruder went the way of the dodo. Gixxer registers an 86.07% drop YoY and 85.41% drop in MoM.
The most interesting development in this segment is the rise of Avenger 160. Because TVS was hoping otherwise with the launch of Ronin as a “cruiser” is one of its credentials. Also, for some reason, Honda Unicorn 160 and X Blade are gaining popularity. Especially X Blade which saw 901.10% growth YoY.
All-in-all, the top 150cc – 200cc segment registered 18.11% YoY growth and 14.68% MoM growth with 1,01,186 units sold in June 2022, 85,672 units sold in June 2021 and 88,236 units sold in May 2022. Not too shabby.
