The mid-capacity segment of motorcycles with engine displacements between 200cc and 500cc has been a sought-after space for Indian motorcyclists. With more options on offer in recent times, popularity of bikes in this space has shot up dramatically. However, due to challenging circumstances, sales have been subdued to some extent.

In February this year, a total of 59,411 motorcycles from this space were dispatched to dealerships all across India. This was 18,520 units less than the figure recorded during the same month last year which resulted in a YoY decline of 23.76 percent. In January this year, total sales volume stood at 63,384 units which translates to an MoM decline of 6.27 percent.

Royal Enfield Models Take Top Spots

The sales chart is led by Royal Enfield Classic 350 which recorded a volume of 30,082 units last month as opposed to 26,775 units sold in January this year. This led to an MoM growth of 12.35 percent. During February last year, Royal Enfield sold 36,025 units of Classic which resulted in a YoY decline of 16.50 percent. It got a generation upgrade in September last year.

Next in line is its cruiser sibling Meteor 350 which registered a monthly volume of 6,749 units. It recorded an MoM decline of 20.22 percent and a YoY drop of 21.74 percent. Meteor 350 was closely followed by Bullet 350 which is the brand’s oldest motorcycle in continuous production.
