Last month, where the recorded sales numbers from Honda stood at 2,22,325 units, TVS, on the other hand, managed to sell 2,47,710 units, which was 25,385 units more over the Honda. Whereas, on a year-on-year basis, both the manufacturers registered a decline in their sales last month. With a downfall of 6.6 per cent, TVS Motors recorded the sales of 2,65,166 units in March 2018.

You will be surprised by knowing that the Japanese giant manufacturer has been facing a drop in sales for its most selling products.

Not even TVS and Honda are going through the bad phase in terms of sales but also there are other manufacturers like Hero MotoCorp and Royal Enfield which have also faced such dip in sales in March and bearing the same from a few months. The implementation of new safety norms and increased prices of the two-wheelers due to the insurance regulations can be considered as the reason behind such slow down in the Indian two-wheeler market.
