Demonetisation impact: Honda Motorcycle sales down in November
Chennai, Dec 1 (IANS) Japanese two wheeler maker Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd on Thursday said it closed last month selling 325,448 units, compared to 326,466 units sold in November 2015.
“Compared to festival buying in November last year, this year the industry was prepared for an organic correction in November. However, demonetisation announcement took everyone with surprise. Two-wheeler sales dropped by 50 per cent in the first 3-4 days of announcement.
“But recovery started week two and by the end of month, Honda’s all India sales returned to almost 80 per cent of normal level with South, West and East leading the recovery,” Y.S.Guleria, Senior Vice President-Sales and Marketing was quoted as saying in the statement.
“Looking ahead, we remain cautious on recovery forecast next month as December is traditionally a lean sales month,” the company said.
