The month of November, 2011 has seen Honda 2 wheelers’ sales being higher than the that of TVS Motor.  Honda sold nearly 1,90,000 whereas TVS sold near 1, 56, 000 thousand.  This means that for the month of November Honda is number three in the hustings behind Hero MotoCorp and Bajaj Auto.  This could be due to the fact that Honda’s second plant in Rajasthan is functional.  It is well known that all Honda 2 wheelers have waiting periods ranging from a couple of months to nearly a year.  Honda’s upward mobility in the Indian market is likely to get a further boost when its third plant at Narasapura near Bengaluru becomes operational.  However, one will have to wait for a while and watch the performance of Honda and TVS for a few months to know if Honda has outsold TVS temporarily or has it actually gotten past the Indian major to claim the third position in the market.
