In June 2021, sales of 150cc bikes increased thanks to the good performance of popular models
The fight for the top spot in sales of 150cc bikes in June 2021, like several months before, pitted TVS’s Apache motorcycle series against the Bajaj Pulsar 150.
While TVS retailed 30,233 units of the Apache models last month, Bajaj has sold nearly 24,000 units of its hugely popular Pulsar 150 motorcycle.
Third place in the 150cc bicycle sales chart for June 2021 was occupied by the Honda Unicorn which recorded sales of 17,260 units.
Yamaha’s 150cc products followed suit, taking the next 3 positions in the list. The FZ found 11,084 new homes, while the R15 recorded 5,020 unit sales.
The MT-15, on the other hand, managed to find just over 3,600 buyers last month, while seventh-numbered Bajaj Avenger Street 160 was only able to record sales of 1,717 units.
Suzuki’s Gixxer models continue to struggle to find more buyers as they posted 1,034 combined units, and the Hero Xtreme was not far behind with 1,017 unit sales.
The final position in the 150cc bicycle sales chart was occupied by the Honda Hornet 2.0 which recorded sales of 247 units.
With the exception of the Pulsar 150 and Avenger Street 160 which posted a -42% and -41% year-over-year sales decline, respectively, all other models did better than in June of this year than the same period in 2020.
In total, the 150cc bikes on the list could find 95,141 buyers in June 2021, representing an 11% year-over-year sales growth.
