HMSI (Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India) has sold 2,80,790 units of the Activa last month, which is a 29 percent growth in sales over the same month last year. Combined with sales of other products as well as exports, HMSI has managed to register an all time high figure in August.

In second place is the Hero Splendor, which has registered a growth of 26 percent over August 2015. This growth could be attributed to the launch of the Hero Splendor iSmart, which has supplemented the Splendor’s lead in the 100-110 cc motorcycle category.
