The Indian two-wheeler market witnessed a slump in sales like the rest of the segments of the country's automobile market in 2020, due to the lockdown and the economic crisis induced by the Covid-19 pandemic. However, during the unlock phase, the two-wheeler segment was the fastest to witness a recovery majorly attributed to the increased preference towards personal mobility, affordability to own a two-wheeler as compared to the passenger vehicles, along with the pent-up demand.
