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.

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.
