Honda Activa continued to reign supreme at the top of the sales standings ahead of TVS Jupiter, Suzuki Access, Honda Dio and TVS Ntorq
Honda finished at the top of the sales charts in the scooter category in the first month of the new Calendar Year courtesy of the ever popular Activa.

The Activa garnered a total of 2,11,660 units last month as against 2,34,749 units during the same period in 2020 with a negative Year-on-Year sales growth of 9.84 per cent. The Jupiter continued to be the most sold scooter for the homegrown brand, as 51,952 units were sold against 28,689 units during the same period twelve months ago.
This led to a Year-on-Year volume surge of 34.28 per cent. The Access 125 from Suzuki slotted in at third position with 45,475 units as against 54,595 units during the same period in 2020 with a 16.70 per cent volume decline. The Dio, on the other hand, finished in the fourth position with 28,914 units as against 32,651 units in January 2020.
