    Default TVS Motors pips Hero in Scooter Sales: xBhp News

    TVS Motors with its strong scooter lineup pipped the largest two wheeler manufacturer Hero for second place in the domestic Indian market.

    TVS Motors is now the second largest seller of scooters in India after Japanese manufacturer Honda. Hero MotoCorp has been lagging in scooter sales due to its production constraints. TVS ended up selling 189875 units ahead of Hero with 166552 units in the second quarter. The data was released by SIAM.

    The Chennai based manufacturer has tasted success thanks to its two new launches the TVS Jupiter and the TVS Scooty Zest. The Jupiter now accounts for 50% of the company's total domestic production.

    This increase in scooter sales has also helped the company recover ground in overall market share as well. TVS now has a 15.6% market share in the first six months of FY15.

    Aniruddha Haldar, head, marketing - scooters-

    “Recently, there has been a paradigm shift in the two-wheeler industry, with more men looking to buy a scooter rather than a motorcycle, given its convenience of use, comfort and fuel efficiency. There is plenty of headroom for growth with the projection for scooter growth at around 30 per cent and with a range of relevant scooter offerings, we expect to grow much better than the industry.”
    To tackle the production-related issues, Hero on its part, is increasing its scooter capacity to 100,000 units by January and 150,000 units by mid-2015 from 80,000 units a month. A part of the new capacity will come from the under-construction Gujarat plant. Further, the Munjal-family promoted company, has promised to launch at least two new scooters in the next one year. This could include the 110-cc Dash and 125-cc Dare.

    That's a very interesting piece of news. What Activa is to Honda, Jupiter is to TVS.
