Two Wheeler Sales Sep 2022
Splendor is closely followed by its one true nemesis, the evergreen Honda Activa. While motorcycles dominate the sales chart, Activa has broken through such cliches and established itself as a top two-wheeler choice, generation after generation.

Honda CB Shine further helps strengthen the manufacturer’s strong position in the marketplace. CB Shine motorcycle sales were up marginally at 2 percent. Sales stood at 1,45,193 units up from 1,42,386 units at volume gain of 2.8k units.
Bajaj Pulsar sales visibly improved. In fact, its gain is the highest in the top order. This however is on account of YoY low base sales. Pulsar wholesales in September 2022 stood at 1,05,003 units, up from 57,974 units. Volume gain stood at 47,029 units at 81.12 percent growth. Hero HF Deluxe sales fell by 30.43 percent.
