TVS, Honda and Hero Motocorp will continue to benefit from higher demand for ungeared scooters in the urban and rural markets. In the last four years, scooters have grown at a faster clip than motorcycles and this trend is expected to continue going forward. The 3-wheeler industry, where Bajaj Auto is the market leader, is also poised for growth on the back of new permits and increase in exports.
