Entry of new models into the 600cc-1000cc segment has brought considerable changes to the top 10 list of August 2018. The rise of Kawasaki has made it harder for others to survive as they have claimed a number that was never seen for a liter-class sportbike. The list starts with Harley Davidson, scoring 134 units for Street 750 and 78 units for Street Rod in India. After the first and second position, next two went into Kawasaki lineup with ZX-10R entering the list at third position with 47 units and Ninja 650 getting 36 units in sales during the 31-day period.
Triumph Tiger is an amazing off-road option and 19 buyers realized the same in August 2018. Kawasaki Z900 bagged the sixth position with 18 units, witnessing a fall in its popularity from last few months. Triumph Street Twin scored 17 units and got the seventh position while Iron 883 from Harley was good for 15 units. Honda CBR650F is consistently present in this list, getting 12 buyers and leaving Street Triple behind for the tenth position with 11 units in August 2018. The most expensive motorcycle on this list is Kawasaki ZX-10R, with INR 12.80 lakh price tag.
The most affordable tag here goes to Harley Street 750. It has been in the first position for a long time, clearly showing user interest in cruiser-specific riding and trust in the American brand. The number has been higher in some months, even crossing collective sales of other premium brands in the country. The Harley range starts well around INR 5.25 lakh and goes up to INR 49.99 lakh.
