The list of top-selling bikes in India of 2018 November has been released. With the year-end approaching, the sales performance of various motorcycle brands in India is nearly similar to that in the previous months. For the same reason, one can easily guess the big sellers of 2018. For a brief comparison, check out the bike sales report of 2018 October.
Without any surprise, Hero MotoCorp products have come in the top-three positions, while Honda and Bajaj closely follow. November 2018 was an important month for the Indian motorcycle market due to two launches: Jawa motorcycles and Royal Enfield 650cc Twins.
That said, here are the top-selling bikes of 2018 November:
|Rank ||Models ||Nov '18 Sales |
|2||Hero HF Deluxe||168839|
|3||Hero Passion ||74396|
|4||Honda CB Shine ||70803 |
|5||Bajaj Pulsar ||69579 |
|6||Hero Glamour||63416 |
|7||Bajaj Platina||62555 |
|8||Bajaj CT ||56864 |
|9||Royal Enfield Classic 350 ||39025 |
|10||TVS Apache ||29947 |

The Hero Splendor has always been a popular commuter in India and has a legacy of close to 30 years. The original Splendor went through a range of minor and major updates over the years, and is now sold in the ‘Plus' avatar.
The Hero HF Deluxe sits below the Splendor Plus in the brand's product portfolio, but still remains an in-house competitor to thelatter. The second-most affordable motorcycle from Hero MotoCorp is also available in an ECO variant.
The Hero Passion is another Indian motorcycle with a strong market presence, right from the early 2000s. The latest Hero Passion is available in three iterations: Pro i3S, Pro 110 and XPRO. All three motorcycles feature a front disc brake.
The Honda CB Shine is the second big-selling two-wheeler from the Japanese motorcycle brand in India; the first one being the Honda Activa scooter. The CB Shine features a well-refined engine with Honda Eco Technology (HET) and a Combi-Braking System (CBS). It is also available in an 'SP' format.
The Bajaj Pulsar can be considered as the motorcycle which established the affordable sports bike segment in India, even though there were some sporty products from ‘Hero Honda', LML and Kinetic, back in the days. With time, the Pulsar range evolved to 180cc, 220cc and the range-topping 200cc categories.
The Hero Glamour competes in the 125cc motorcycle segment; one of the most competitive spheres of the market. It is quite interesting to see that the performance-focussed KTM Duke 125 also competes in the same segment.
With the latest Bajaj Platina 110 model on offer, sales of the commuter motorcycle are expected to rise even further. The Bajaj Platina is also popular in terms of mileage. Many owners claim that they have received an average fuel efficiency of 80km/l.
The Bajaj CT 100 looks almost identical to the Bajaj Platina. It features a minimal styling approach and is aimed to be areliable utilitarian motorcycle. On the equipment front, the Bajaj CT 100 comes with an SNS (Spring-In-Spring) suspension.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is a major player in the classic motorcycle segment, but sales have gone a bit down compared to October 2018. Some claim that the launch of the new Jawa motorcycles could be the reason for this, and we do not doubt it either.
The TVS Apache line-up has gone through a lot of progress in the past few years with the introduction of some compelling products in the 160cc, 180cc and 200cc categories. At the very top as the flagship product from TVS, sits the Apache RR 310.
Even though the list shows the big sellers of the second-last month of the year, we still get a basic outline of all the top performers of 2018. However, with new launches scheduled for 2019, some of the motorcycles on the list might go down the chart eventually.
