10 Best Selling Two Wheelers in 2015-16
India is an emerging market in the two-wheeler segment however in the past year, a stunted growth rate has been witnessed. Few of the automakers have grown in the past year and some have received a downfall during the previous year. Recently the Society of Indian Automobiles Manufacturers (SIAM) has come up with data for the top 10 best-selling two-wheelers in FY 2015-16
|Year 2015||Model||Rank||Model||Year 2016||%Change|
|2,178,227||Honda Activa||2||Honda Activa||2,466,350||+13.2|
|1,341,424||Hero Passion||3||HF Deluxe||1,148,254||+6.1|
|8,27,485||Honda CB Shine||5||Honda CB Shine||7,98,699||-3.4|
|7,48,628||TVS XL Super||6||TVS XL Super||7,23,767||-3.3|
|6,31,354||Bajaj Pulsar||7||Hero Glamour||6,79,147||23.1|
As per the usual trend Hero Splendor, Hero HF Deluxe and Honda Activa have figured in the top 10 list since the past two years i.e. FY 2015 and now FY 2016 also. The Hero Splendor has been the king of this segment, however it has faced a slight dip of 1.2 percent in sales in the past year while its arch-rival the Honda Activa has witnessed an upward trend of almost 13 percent giving tough competition to the segment leader, the Splendor. If this trend continues for this year as well, then soon Honda Activa would be surpassing the Hero Splendor to become the best-selling two-wheeler in the country.
As we move to the middle section of the table, the Honda CB Shine, TVS Super XL and Hero Passion occupy it, which have interchanged their positions since the past one-year. The lower part of the table has a new entrant by the name of TVS Jupiter which has impressed the audiences and has received an overall growth of 42 percent, which is massive for a two-wheeler in just one year. All in all, Hero has been the biggest gainer in the past year, which further includes Honda and TVS in the lineup as well.
