Continuing its aggressive sales momentum in fiscal 2017-18, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. closed May 2017 with 5 lakh units plus sales for second month in a row.

Overall Honda 2Wheelers India sold a total of 537,035 units in May 2017 compared to 436,328 units in May 2016. Honda’s total sales grew by 23% which is double the industry growth of 11% in the month.

Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt.

Increased acceptance of Honda’s newly launched motorcycles has resulted in Honda maintaining its No. 2 position in the motorcycle segment for second month in a row. Overall, the two-wheeler industry has once again bounced back to double digit growth after six months indicating early signs of recovery. However, with upcoming GST implementation, industry sentiment is cautiously optimistic.”
