  • Two Wheeler Sales Report - October 2013: xBhp News

    Sales Report: October 2013.

    It is such an eventful month for the entire auto industry. Hero Motocorp set a new world record for their amazing sales of more than 6.25 Lac two wheelers the last month. That comes to approximately 20,000 vehicles daily. This is a news of celebratory nature for every Indian, because this is a world record, and no one has yet touched the 6 Lac/ month mark even once.

    On the other hand, Hero's ex, HMSI also had a good growth to post, more than 50% growth. TVS managed to post a positive growth, although their scooters went downward, despite the recent release of TVS Jupiter. Could this be due to Activa i's recent release? Maybe, who knows.
    Yamaha also has nothing much to worry. With no major releases this year, they still are doing well.

    Bajaj is the only company again, to post negative growth. With the strike behind them now, one can only wonder what's the reason for negative sales, almost throughout the year. Although with Discover M's already in the showroom, they're at least prepared for November sales. Let's hope it will go better this time.

    Mostly, every company has posted a positive growth figure, putting the industry in a good festive mindframe. Its nice to see the industry recovering. Expensive fuel, expensive automobile loans, more releases, etc. may also have resulted in 2 wheeler segment enjoying more than their 4 Wheeler counterpart, despite the fact that 2 wheeler makers have increased the prices multiple times during the year. Let's hope November also posts a similar picture...


    Hero Motocorp + (18.17%)

    Country's largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp today reported a 18.17 per cent rise in total sales at 6,25,420 units for October this year.
    In the same month last year, it had sold 5,29,215 units, Hero MotoCorp said in a statement.
    "This is also the first time that any two-wheeler manufacturer has exceeded the landmark six lakh unit sales in a month," it added.
    The company's previous highest sales for any month was recorded in May this year when it sold 5,57,890 units.
    Hero MotoCorp Senior Vice President (Marketing and Sales) Anil Dua said: "This sales momentum has been helped by our star brands Splendor and Passion and also by the new products."
    "Our recently-introduced five-year warranty and our brand campaigns have also created customer preference for the Hero two-wheelers," he added.


    Honda Motorcycles & Scooters India + (50.05%)

    Two-wheeler manufacturer Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India today reported 50.05 per cent growth in sales at 3,75,741 units for October 2013. The company's total sales had stood at 2,50,408 units in the same month of last year.

    My view about each and every company,

    Mahindra:
    What about others, especially Mahindra, waiting to see their growth chart, . .

    Suzuki: Guess in some few years Suzuki will be no more seeing their sales chart and their products, . .

    Yamaha: Yamaha on the other side I'm still wondering how beautifully they are fooling our people and most importantly our people falling for it , just changing paint schemes and getting more sales, wow for Yamaha, hope our people learn . . .

    TVS: I guess TVS will start to rise back from 2015, that's when they are going to start launching new bikes. . .

    Honda: Honda have done a fantastic job, keep it up but Hero got to watch out not to lose here. . .

    Hero: Come on Hero work hard hard hard, don't give up the first place and also after the latest launch of the bikes people are quite disappointed hope they don't do the same in the future but bring up better products, hope the new Karizma 250 will be better players and also lookers. . .

    Bajaj: LoL first they don't disclose their bikes and now their sales chart, attention seeker . . .

    Cheers!!!

      After few years... HMSI will dethrone hero moto corp... Most probably...

      They have a well thought out game plan and technical and financial might to execute it....

      On the other hand hero moto and bajaj lack the technical strength to develop several products together...so they are following a step by step approach... Whereas HMSI is on an all out assault....

        Sorry, Bajaj lack the technical strength? they got KTM in their fold and the 200NS is a a very good example of what they can do. Heck, they even got 4-valve engines on their 100cc bikes! how can you say that Bajaj lack the technical strength. Even Honda acknowledged that Bajaj is their true competitor, they are not really worried about Hero, that speaks volumes about both Hero & Bajaj.

          Anything can happen, we can't say but Hero and Bajaj not having technical strength, come on please. . . Hero are having EBR on their side, their potential will only be determined after the launch the Karizma 250 which is the most awaited and don't forget Bajaj have KTM who's they are making good use of. . .

            The new Hero Karizma looks a disaster to me...

            On a lighter note:

            This must have happened

            Honda
            "We have CBR, 'nuf said.. your turn Hero"

            Hero
            "You left me but I got EBR"

            Honda
            "Ok, looks like we are gonna have to work harder.. they both can kickass using Karizma.. all staff holidays cancelled"

            EBR
            "Listen Hero, we will make the bike like EBR 1190 but with some............"

            Hero

            "No problem"

            EBR
            "But I was...."

            Hero
            "Look, it's done!!"

            EBR
            "Holy mother of god!! WTF dude?"

            Honda
            "LOL..ok Guys take a break... Christmas-Diwali-Id-New year whatever. .... they aren't going anywhere."

            Hero
            "The new Hero EBR Karizma"

            Honda
            "Ya, tail light of 1190, face of defaced 1190... you got it right EBR.. o you also increased a bit of Bhp of the same engine....how cute"

            EBR
            "Kill me already...!"

            The point is, Honda is a mammoth....to beat her, Bajaj has roped in KTM, and Hero has roped in EBR..

            It's sweet... but how they use it is another story... Bajaj is doing a fairly good job.... I had high expectations from Hero+EBR which was tainted with the first pic of the new "defaced" Karizma...with no actual extra punch other than the one on the customer's face... what a great way to spoil Karizma we liked....

            Hope they will improve in future...

                re: Two Wheeler Sales Report - October 2013: xBhp News

                Guys....just a bit of clarification-hero and bajaj not having technical strength --- has nothing to do with 4 valve engine or ktm or ebr ...

                Technical strength not only includes technical.know-how, but also the quantity of resources - both human and machines.

                A company may have knowledge but if it does not have resources in sufficient quantity, it can not carry out r&d on multiple vehicles- design, testing, etc simultaneously of multiple.vehicles..so it will prioritize..and that is what hero and bajaj are doing...and that is why honda sales volumes are increasing at frantic pace coz it can launch multiple vehicles in muliple categories simultanoisly or within a short time span.

                  But Hero has a huge sticker printing facility I heard. They can print about a billion stickers a day.

                  Sadly we will not be able to see Ducati Streetfighter Pro, Plus, Xtreme and PGM-Fi though.

                      If I were Bajaj I'd have have bought TVS.
                      Think about it, Bajaj is THE biggest automotive company in the country, TVS is prolly running on least profit on this list, but they have bigger dealership/service network than Bajaj.

                            Bajaj can't do that, even if TVS wishes to. The Competition Commission of India will never allow it. It is regarded as Anti-competitive behavior. In other words, it comes under the definition of, "killing the competition".


                            But the real cause for worry is... Why are Bajaj losing on sales constantly? What wrong move did they make? With the exception of the months of January & September, Bajaj have recorded negative growth during the entire year (2013).

                            They're such a good company, and today, they're the only one in the industry going negative, and analysts are shouting "sell" for Bajaj shares...
                            What's wrong with Bajaj? And what does the future hold for this company?

                              Really a decline in their growth how is that. . ? I thought day by day they are bringing newer and newer products, why decline then. . ? According to me I guess Bajaj should stop all the present shit extra models which they name as T, ST, M blah blah blah and instead launch a single product and try to give better quality in that. . . I think after the launch of their much awaited bikes, 200SS and 375, they might get some luck and boost sales here. . .
