CB350 sales consistent

Honda H’ness CB350 deserves a pat on the back for emerging as a viable option in 350cc segment. It’s true that CB350 is nowhere close to toppling its primary rival Classic 350. However, even cornering a small market share and making it in the top ten is itself an achievement.

CB350 sales in February 2021 were 3,268 units, commanding a market share of 4.19%. CB350 sales are expected to grow in future as newer variants are launched and Honda increases its BigWing dealerships.

Other motorcycles in top ten include Himalayan (2,660 units), Avenger 220 (1,003), Dominar 400 (969), and Dominar 250 (748). Husqvarna 250 is at 11th place, registering strong YoY growth of 315.34%. GIXXER 250 YoY numbers also look good, with sales more than doubling in February 2021. Motorcycles with negative YoY growth in February 2021 include KTM 390 (-70.03%), KTM 250 (-47.03%), Apache 310 (-45.83%) and Mahindra Mojo (-80.23%).
