Hero MotoCorp has overtaken Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India to become the country's largest motor scooter exporter.
The companies split four years ago and went in their own path, competing with each other in sales.
Scooters being a majority in production for Honda, models like the Activa took over the Indian market like wild fire.
Both the two wheeler manufacturers competed, not only in domestic sales but with international sales and exports as well.
