Yamaha Motor India on Tuesday announced it has seen a hike in sales for three consecutive months and that it saw a year-on-year growth in sales of around 17% in the month of September. With the festive period around the corner, the company expects to make the most of this momentum and build on sales figures.

Yamaha sold a total of 63,052 units in September, up from 53,727 units in the same month of last year. While Covid-19-related challenges, the nation-wide lockdown in particular, posed a massive challenge to the company and the auto industry as a whole, Yamaha reports that the easing of restrictions has helped it get back to top gear and the past three months have seen an uptick in sales. It further informed that its year-on-year growth in July of 2020 was 4.3% and 14.8% in August when compared to same time periods of 2019.
