TVS ranked third in the list and its sales fell by -8.9% YoY. The OEM however gained 0.6% Market Share.
We are happy to see Jawa Motorcycles volumes being reported here. Jawa sold 2,121 units and its sales increased 42.2% YoY! Going by absolute volumes; Jawa has a long way to go to give real competition to Royal Enfield. RE sales were over 19 times that of Jawa in Sep 2020! We now also have Honda entering the segment in a big way with the Hness 350.
Another trend to note is the EV sales – The EV Two Wheelers grew by 50.1% in Sep’20 v/s Sep’19. The acceptance of EVs is slowly gaining and is reflecting in the volumes. However; the overall share is still way below expected levels. Do go through our detailed article on Electric 2W Sales – here
