The commuter segment has once again established its reign as seen in the February sales report
Thanks to the ongoing pandemic and the social distancing norms, office-goers have had to switch from public transportation to the next best thing: two-wheelers. This has bumped up the sales of several commuter motorcycles and here are the top five highest selling motorcycles in India for February 2021:
Hero Splendor: 2,47,422 units
Hero MotoCorp recently reached the 100 million sales milestone, and it’s a given the Splendor contributed a huge chunk to this figure. At 2,47,422 units, the number of Splendors sold in February 2021, has gone up by almost 32,000 as compared to February 2020. This feat has been achieved thanks to the Splendor’s no-nonsense nature, affordable price tag, and impressive fuel efficiency figures. However, Hero recently hiked the prices of the Splendor, right after launching its 100 Million Edition.
Hero HF Deluxe: 1,26,309 units
The bridesmaid to the Splendor in terms of sales is, well, another Hero, the HF Deluxe. However, as the sales of the Splendor has increased, this has had a domino effect on the HF’s sales. It saw a drop of 50,000 units, but surprisingly, the HF Deluxe still managed to outsell all other motorcycles. In an attempt to boost sales, Hero has introduced some interesting offers on the HF Deluxe. Check them out in our story.
Honda CB Shine: 1,15,970 units
The Honda CB Shine sees a massive 65,000 unit surge in its sales as compared to last year. The CB Shine was Honda’s take at the commuter motorcycle segment and it’s safe to say it’s been ‘shining’ since its arrival. It even breached past the 90 lakh mark in December 2020 and with such a steep rise in sales, the 1 crore milestone isn’t too far away either!

Bajaj Pulsar: 81,454 units
Finally, we have the Pulsars! Bajaj’s Pulsar lineup also sees a small but significant increase in sales, by 6,000 units. This number is surely impressive but bearing in mind that it is a sum of the Pulsar 125, 150, 180, 180F, 220F, NS160, RS200, and the NS200’s sales, it seems slightly less significant. That said, Bajaj is working on a revamped Pulsar lineup which should help boost sales. First in the new lineup will be the Pulsar 250, you can check out its full deets in our story.
Bajaj Platina: 46,264 units
Last year, the Royal Enfield Classic 350 outsold the Bajaj Platina but the tables have turned this time around. The Platina not only outsold the Classic 350, but with a 16,000-unit rise, it also became the fifth highest selling bike in the market. This is thanks to the Platina seeing a price cut of Rs 8,000 with the introduction of its kick-start variant while also becoming the most affordable bike with an electric starter.
