October marked the commencement of the festive period with the onset of the 9 day Navratri festival. As per FADA, Passenger Vehicles sales were much better than 2-wheelers in this 9 day festive period wherein 2-wheeler sales are estimated to have declined 15% YoY. While retail sales have been lower than estimated at the start of the festive season for 2-wheelers, 2-wheelers OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) are aggressively pushing stock with dealers. Thus, if festive season demand does not pick up, one may see massive inventory correction post festive, in the 2-wheeler segment.
