The effects of sales slowdown can be seen in almost all the vehicle categories in the Indian automobile industry and the same applies to two-wheelers as well.

Express Drives Top Pick: In the 110cc scooter segment, TVS Jupiter has faired very well in our tests but Honda Activa takes the top spot in the 125cc segment in terms of comfort and utility.
