Hero MotoCorp which is India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer lost 2.86 percent market share from 33.83% in July 2018 to 36.51% in July this year. What makes it worse in the increase in the market share of Honda. HMSI too registered negative growth in July 2019 where the sales fell by 10.5%. However, Honda’s market share increased from 27.99% to 30.10%. Why you might ask because Hero posted a massive -22.9% fall in sales. Now there is only a difference of 3% and we think if similar conditions persist, Honda will not shy from taking the number one spot in the Indian two-wheeler market.
