The overall sentiment of the market hasn't been great during the festive season, but still two-wheeler manufacturers have registered positive growth in sales for the month of November 2018.

India's largest two-wheeler maker by volumes, Hero MotoCorp registered a sale of 6,10,252 units in November 2018. The company's sales grew marginally in the post festive period as compared to the 605,270 units sold in November 2017. Hero's growth in volumes comes despite an overall drop in numbers across the auto industry owing to the increase in insurance costs before the festive season and the overall low-key market sentiment. Hero's strong sellers continue to remain entry-level commuter motorcycles, while the company has also seen impressive numbers from its scooter range.
