The seven dominating brands of India collectively registered 20,96,751 units from the total available sales figure of 21,22,318 units from 15 brands. Sales number for BMW
, Ducati, Indian or any other premium performance brand may not make any significant ratio difference. Piaggio Vespa range got itself the eighth position, overtaking KTM and Aprilia by a considerable margin.
After the tenth position, one either get performance specific brands like Kawasaki (387 units), Harley-Davidson (270 units) and Triumph (80 units) or struggling to survive options like Mahindra (419 units) and UM (231 units). The numbers show poor performance, despite being priced within bikes that single-handedly post four digit numbers in one month.
