Honda Activa topped the list with 1,49,470 units sold as of May 2022, registering an increase of 778% as compared to last year’s 17,006 units.

It is followed by TVS Jupiter, which has sold 59,613 units as of May 2022, registering an increase of 868% as compared to last year’s 6153 units. The company constantly brings it with new updates and makes it available in a lot of variant options, due to which it continues to remain popular among the customers.
After this, Suzuki has access to number three, which model is well-liked due to its look and comfort. Suzuki Access has sold 35,709 units in May 2022, registering an increase of 267% as compared to last year’s 9706 units. It is followed by TVS Ntarq which has sold 26,005 units in May 2022, registering an increase of 499% as compared to last year’s 4337 units.
Hero scooter lags behind in this list and Hero Pleasure is at number 6, with 18,531 units sold in May 2022 registering an increase of 739% as compared to last year’s 2208 units.

Hero’s Destiny is at the eighth position with 10,892 units sold in May 2022, registering an increase of 1917% as compared to last year’s 10,352 units. After this, Suzuki’s new scooter has been Avenis, which has sold 8922 units in the month of May, followed by Yamaha RZR, which has sold 8845 units in the month of May.
Now talking about Ola Electric, the company says that they have sent 9225 units to the customers, although it could not be registered in the RTO, due to which they cannot be counted in the sale. Although the sales of electric scooters are increasing rapidly and in such a situation, we can expect that electric scooters will also be included in it in the coming months.
The scooter market in the country is getting a little better and the sales of models like Activa are coming back on track, with other models registering a good jump in sales. Along with this, there is a boom in electric scooters but it has to be seen how long it will be included in this list.
