So was it the usual suspects? Well, almost…

The January 2023 two-wheeler sales data is out, and yes, there are quite some familiar names on the list of bestsellers. Here’s a brief explainer:



Hero Splendor Plus

2,45,875 (Combined)

Honda CB Shine


Bajaj Pulsar 125 / Pulsar NS125

49,527 (combined)

Hero HF Deluxe


Bajaj Platina 100 / Platina 110


Ruling the roost is, of course, the Hero Splendor Plus, with 2,45,875 units sold, a 23.2 percent growth from the 1,94,760 units sold in January last year. And a big reason for the winning trend can be chalked down to its outstanding fuel efficiency, among other things, which you can read about in our review.

The runner-up on the list comes in with half the numbers of the leader. The Honda CB Shine may not be the cheapest or the most feature-packed among its 125cc siblings. But Honda’s reliability as well as wide dealership network and aftersales assurance means peace of mind, something Indian commuters can always depend upon. That said, its sales dipped marginally, from 105,159 units in Jan last year.

Next, the duo of the Bajaj Pulsar 125 and slightly upmarket Pulsar NS 125 netted a combined 49,527 units, pipping the plain-jane Hero HF Deluxe by a scant 2,447 units. So does this mean 125cc bikes are the new choice among India’s commuters? Tell us in the comments.

Rounding off the list today is another Bajaj duo, the Platina 100 and its elder brother, the Platina 110. Now, though the Platina can be had in both disc and drum variants, don’t be misled to write them off as bare-bones, as the disc variant of the Platina 110 also holds the distinction of being India’s smallest-capacity (and cheapest) bike with ABS!
