Top-Selling 200-500cc Bikes In May 2021

Royal Enfield dominated the 200-500cc bike sales in May 2021, much like several months before, even as the 2-wheeler segment struggled big time during the period.

As is the usual case, it was the Classic 350 from the middleweight motorcycle segment leader that sat in the top spot of the list with 9239 unit sales in May.

The Bullet 350 with registered sales of 4557 units, the Meteor 350 with 3375 unit sales and the Bullet 350 ES with 2112 units came second, third and fourth.

Fifth-placed Bajaj Pulsar 180 and NS200 duo managed to find 1325 takers (combined), while Hero MotoCorp shifted 1080 units of the Xpulse series of motorcycles from its showrooms last month.

The Bajaj Pulsar 220F took the seventh spot in the May 2021 200-500cc bike sales list, having registered sales of 1026 units. It was followed by the Jawa range of retro-style bikes that found 643 new homes.

Royal Enfield’s sole adventure motorcycle, the Himalayan, recorded 463 units sales and occupied the ninth position in the list, while the final spot was taken by the CB350 from Honda with 428 units to its name.
