Upcoming Bikes and Scooters in India – 2016

The growth of Indian automobile industry depends a lot on the performance of the two-wheeler sector. And like always, the financial year 2014-15 too belonged to two-wheeler segment that helped the industry record a marginal growth of 3.90 per cent in the domestic sales. While the two-wheeler segment recorded an impressive 8.09 per cent year-on-year growth in the domestic sales, the passenger vehicles grew at 3.90 per cent.

The case is no different in exports as well, whereas two-wheelers recorded around 18 percent growth as against passenger vehicles’ exports at 4.42 per cent.Long story short, the two-wheeler segment has been the back-bone of the automobile industry this year, and is expected to see even better growth in 2015. Though in the last 3-4 months, the two-wheeler industry has seen a dip in the sales, and that’s primarily because of the last year’s bad monsoon that impacted the overall rural market sales . So with a hope to see a better monsoon this year, the companies are planning to launch several new two wheeler.Here’s a list of manufacturer-wise upcoming bikes & scooters to be launched in India.
