The scooter segment slowed down in the Indian market after the good old Bajaj Chetak was no more popular with the Indian customers. With the advent of efficient and stylish motorcycles in India, scooter lost its popularity in India.
But that has changed in the recent past. The competition in the two-wheelers market in India is still led by motorcycles, although scooters are slowly making a comeback. The recovery of scooter sales in India is attributed to the ease of riding with automatic gearbox along with good fuel efficiency.
