Honda reported a 64% YOY growth in the July sales of its highly successful Activa. This is the third occasion in the last 11 months when Activa has outdone every other two-wheeler sold in India. Honda sold 1,91,883 units of Activa in this July.
There has been a stiff competition from some good time between Hero's Splendor and Honda's Activa. The recent launch of Honda Activa 125 has also been received by the Indian market with open arms.
Commenting on the achievement, Mr. Yadvinder S. Guleria, Vice President - Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India said, "We are excited that Activa has once again become the highest selling 2-wheeler of India. This is more significant since an automatic scooter displaced a motorcycle for numero uno position in Indian 2- wheeler industry. This clearly indicates that Activa is exponentially getting acceptance as the most preferred choice of 2-wheeler for commuting. In the last few years scooters have evolved and become more technologically advanced, fuel efficient and stylish. The high growth of Scooters in India has primarily been led by Honda and we are confident of maintaining this leadership in future.”
