Top 10 best selling motorcycles Sep 2019 – Hero Splendor leads

Best motorcycles India

The two wheeler industry’s lack luster sales performance continued in September 2019 as well with all but one motorcycle in the top 10 list registering a positive YoY growth. The MoM comparison shows a better picture but then, as festive season draws closer, sales usually increase and this is not an accurate representation of a recovery.

The top 10 best selling motorcycles in September 2019 continue to feature the usual suspects with the venerable Hero Splendor family finishing at the top with a fair margin. The iconic nameplate registered sales of 2.44 lakh units which is impressive as a standalone monthly sales figure but is a good 40% lower than what the brand managed in September 2018.

Closest rival to the Splendor is its low-cost stablemate, the Hero HF Deluxe which managed a tally of 1.95 lakh units last month at YoY decline of just 3.05%. Finishing at a very distant third spot is the Honda CB Shine series which is offered in two variants. The 125 cc commuter ended September 2019 at 88,893 unis, a 10.27% improvement compared to same month last year.

The Bajaj Pulsar family continues to be the Pune-based two wheeler maker’s best selling model. Despite the recent introduction of a new 125 cc variant, the Pulsar nameplate registered a YoY decline of 23.84% at 68,068 units.

The Glamour emerges as the third Hero motorcycle in the top 5. The 125 cc commuter clocked 62,016 units at a decline of 25%. The attractively priced Bajaj CT100 which received a few updates recently finds itself in sixth spot at 51,778 units but at YoY decline of 42%, it is one of the most affected models in this list. It’s sibling, the Platina posted a 34.8% fall to reach a tally of 43,978.

Fourth and the last Hero in the list is the Passion whose sales plummeted by 57.2% to 40,672 units. The only TVS motorcycle to make it to the top 10 list is the Apache (all variants combined) at 29,889 units (decline of 46.1%).

The Royal Enfield Classic 350, the most premium motorcycle of this lot, took the final spot with sales of 29,376 units at a decline of 33.27%. Together, the top 10 best selling motorcycles in September 2019 posted an overall YoY decline in volume of 21.68% at 8,54,430 units.
