Top 5 Best Selling Scooters Of October 2020: Honda Activa Tops List, Suzuki Access 125 Still The Highest Selling 125cc
1. Honda Activa
For years, the Honda Activa has been at the top of the sales charts, no scooter coming within touching distance of it. It has sold 42,000 fewer units this year, which could be a slightly worrying thing for Honda.It is also not the leader in the overall two-wheeler sales charts, the Hero Splendor outselling the Honda by nearly 75,000 units. Will November be fruitful for Honda? We shall have to wait for the results to arrive.
The TVS Jupiter has reclaimed the second spot after slipping to third a few months ago. It has performed on par with its score from Oct ’19, selling 74,149 units this year. The Jupiter did get a disc brake option, becoming the only 110cc scooter in the country to get the safety aid. Hopefully, buyers will prioritise getting the safety feature in the coming months.
3. Suzuki Access 125
The Suzuki Access 125 has been our benchmark in the 125cc scooter space for years. Its success in the sales charts is reflective of just how good the scooter is. There has been a slight dip of around 1000 units from Oct ’19 to Oct ’20. Still, 52,551 units sold is a great figure for Suzuki. Plus, now it comes with a Bluetooth-enabled dash, helping you stay connected on the go.
4. Honda Dio
India’s first fun and the youthful scooter is the fourth highest-selling scooter in October 2020, selling 44,046 units, 7000 more than in October 2019. Expect this number to grow with the arrival of the Repsol Edition Dio, which costs just Rs 2,500 more than the Deluxe version.
5. TVS NTorq 125
The TVS NTorq 125 has always been a hit amongst younger buyers, offering a great balance between performance and sensibility. The past month saw the arrival of the NTorq Marvel Edition scooters, which would have definitely helped drive more sales. TVS sold almost 7,500 units more of the scooter this year than in the same month last year.
The two-wheeler market has seen steady growth, returning to pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels of sales already. The past month has seen a great run-up to the festive period with some two-wheelers exceeding the number of units sold in October 2019. Here are the top five scooters sold in October 2020:
