December 2019 wasn’t an ambitious year end period. If anything, sales were lacklustre for most top selling two-wheelers. Hero MotoCorp however did pull a fast one and finds two of its products as the months top two sold bikes. Hero Splendor dominates the list at 1,93,726 units sold in Dec 2019.
And that too at a sales growth. Having sold 15,315 units more than last December, when 1,78,411 units were sold. Sales growth stands at 8.58 percent. Hero HF Deluxe sales, though a lot lower than last December, has managed to climb into second spot in the list. Sales is down 15.95 percent, down to 1,38,951 units from 1,65,321. Volume contracted by 26,370 units.
In the big volume sphere, Honda Activa lost big time. Sales fell 24.37 percent to 1,31,899 units, down from 1,74,393 units sold in December 2018. Competition was clearly more cutthroat the previous winter. This December, Activa sales volume was contained by as much as a quarter having lost volume by 42,494 units. To put that in perspective, that’s more than what some top sellers have registered as sales for the month.
