At the same time, Honda's exports have also shown a growth of 16% at 31,118 units. The company says that its BS 6-compliant models have been 'gaining momentum' in new overseas markets.
Talking about the sales achievement, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Director – Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “While the industry growth is expected to hover near the double digits in Q4 and upcoming Q1 due to the low base of BS 6 transition, Honda continues to drive the 2Wheeler demand recovery for 2nd straight month of 2021. Backed by robust demand for our models across both Red Wing and Silver Wing (300cc+ premium motorcycles), Honda’s sales have surged 31% in February’21."
The company's cumulative sales have jumped 29% to 442,696 units last month. On the other hand, Honda sold 342,021 units in the same month a year ago. As per the Japanese automaker, this growth was led by over 1 lakh additional two-wheelers sales (+100,675 units) in Feb’21 in comparison to last year's sales.
