The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers has released the sales data for February 2023, and the Hero Splendor continued to lead the two-wheeler sales in our market. Hero MotoCorp sold a total of 2,88,605 units of the Splendor range in India in February 2023.
Bajaj Auto’s Pulsar range was the second highest-selling motorcycle in our market, totaling 80,106 units in February 2023. Hero MotoCorp took another spot in the top five highest-selling motorcycles chart, with its HF Deluxe securing sales of 56,290 units in February 2023. The Honda Shine and TVS Apache range completed the list with sales of 35,594 units and 34,935 units, respectively. Check out the year-on-year sales numbers in the table below:
Hero Splendor registered a significant increase in year-on-year sales for February, while the HF Deluxe saw a decline in numbers during the same period. The year-on-year sales for the Honda Shine, too, declined significantly. However, this is expected to change with the launch of the new Shine 100, which has been introduced to rival the Hero Splendor in the 100cc segment of the Indian market. Meanwhile, the Bajaj Pulsar and TVS Apache brands grew considerably in the year-on-year sales for February.
Bajaj Auto has announced the launch of the updated Pulsar NS200 and Pulsar NS160 in India. Meanwhile, the Pulsar 220F should arrive in our market very soon. Do note that the updated Bajaj Pulsar 220F has already started to arrive at select dealerships in the country.
