A positive buying sentiment has been evident in the last couple of months, supporting the renewal of the automobile industry that was battered by the pandemic. With workplaces reopening, there’s been an uptick in the sale of personal vehicles and what says ‘personal’ better than a trusty two-wheeler in India? Let’s take a look at the top 10 selling scooters for September 2022.
The Honda Activa has been ruling the top-selling scooter charts for a long time now and for September 2022, the trusty two-wheeler sold a total of 2,45,607 units to take the top spot. To give an idea of the windfall win and preference for the Activa in the market, note that the second on the list, the TVS Jupiter, raked in one-third of Activa’s total sales.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) sold 4,88,924 units in September, accounting for an increase of 15.5% over numbers sold in August 2022 which stood at 39,307 units.
