Hero MotoCorp is to motorcycles as Maruti Suzuki is to cars - both dominate their respective industries in India. Four offerings from Hero feature in the top 10 two-wheelers sold in India. The Splendour continues to dominate the sales charts selling 25,17,189 units in FY 2014-15 registering a 11.1% YoY increase. Hero's Passion, HF Deluxe and Glamour have secured the third, fourth and tenth spot in the list.

Honda's Activa, the only scooter in the list, has recorded a YoY increase by 30.1%, with sales of 21,78,227 lakh units in FY 2014-15. Interestingly, the Activa's annual sales is more than the sales of all the other 9 players in the top 10 scooter list combined! The list includes Hero Maestro, TVS Jupiter, Hero Pleasure, Suzuki Access, Honda Dio, Honda Aviator, TVS Pep+, TVS Wego and Yamaha Alpha; which combined sold 19,96,510 units, in the same period.

Honda's CB Shine and Dream too find their place in the top 10 bagging the fifth and eighth position respectively.

The TVS XL Super is the only moped that has made its way to the list bagging the sixth spot with sales of 7,55,503 units in FY 2014-15.

Bajaj has two products in the list - Pulsar at seventh spot and Discover at ninth. The Discover is facing the heat from the market and has witnessed a 43.9% drop in YoY sales.

I am amazed at how much the Activa outsells its competition. I guess the 21 lakhs includes both the 110 and 125 versions of the Activa? Looks like the Activa is the Alto of the scooter world.

The TVS XL Super has basically no competition at all, so I am not surprised with the numbers sold. It is a rugged torque monster with an overload-friendly chassis. And it is mostly used to carry goods. The reasons that made the Tata Ace and 407 successful are the same reasons the XL Super is such a success.

The Activa's numbers honestly make me wonder if that scooter can ever be beaten. It essentially like the Innova - not the most feature loaded offering in the segment, but sells because of the trust associated with it. The Activa isn't just responsible for adding to Honda's sales, it's also why the Mahindra Gusto is struggling and subsequently why Mahindra is in two minds about launching the Mojo.

I'd love to see Mahindra and Bajaj top these charts. Bajaj isn't going the conventional way and that may work for them in the long term. Mahindra on the other hand, is just confused and isn't portraying a bold enough image to look confidence inspiring to buyers.

Doesn't TVS sell any motorcycles? The XL and the scooters make up almost 13 lakhs, what is the number for the motorcycles?
