Scooters are popular in Indian society for various reasons like affordability and ease of handling. They are extremely popular among those who prefer riding two-wheelers. In 1948, Bajaj Auto became the first scooter dealer in the country with the importing of Vespa scooters. It enjoyed little competition till the mid-1980s, but soon lost popularity to Motorbikes.
In 2000, things changed and Honda introduced the first gearless scooter in the India Market- Activa. Soon Activa became the best-selling two-wheeler even beating Hero’s Splendor.
Honda still remains as the top scooter-selling manufacturer. However, Hero, Suzuki, TVS, etc., are paving a breakthrough in the market.
