The 150 cc motorcycle segment has been impacted due to the global shortage of semiconductors. "The two-wheeler category continues to play spoilsport as the entry level segment is yet to witness healthy growth. This segment's performance is now becoming critical for the overall segment to come back on the path of recovery as dealer inventory has risen to 30-35 days in anticipation of a good festive season," said FADA President Vinkesh Gulati, PTI reported.
