Nithyanandh K,

As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

Both manufacturers have set new individual single day sales records.

The country’s top two-wheeler makers Hero Motocorp and Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) have clocked astonishing single day sales volumes on the auspicious day of Dhanteras.
