Suzuki Motorcycle India had a change of fortunes ever since the Access 125 and Gixxer series arrived in the market and the two-wheeler continues to keep the momentum going. For the month of May 2017, Suzuki registered a 51.69% increase in sales over the same period a year ago. The organization recorded an cumulative sales figure of 38,923 units a month ago, a healthy increment over the 25,659 units that were sold in May 2016.
Suzuki India has been registering double digit growth since the previous four months, contributed by the consistently selling Gixxer and Access 125 models. The Suzuki Gixxer remains a popular offering in the premium 150 cc segment and recorded a sales figure of 9141 units (including exports), contributing 20.7% to the overall sales in May this year. On the other hand, the Suzuki Access is the organization’s bestselling model and recorded an aggregate of 32,151 units (counting sends out) a month ago.
Individually, the Gixxer and Access have recorded exports of 3893 units and 256 units respectively, while the organization’s total exports stand at 5141 units for May 2017, contributing 11.6% to its overall deals. The Gixxer and Access contributed 93.7% to the organization’s overall volumes.
Barring the two models, Suzuki’s other commuter offerings make for an extremely small chunk of sales. Items including the Let’s scooter and Hayate are moderate sellers, while the premium motorcycles including the India-made Hayabusa, GSX series, V-Strom 1000 and the likes make for limited numbers. Nevertheless, Suzuki’s sales do emerge as positive and is better to the industry growth that was at 11% in May.
