"Last year, the share of registered female customers was about 20 per cent. Now, it has grown to 25 per cent. There is a definite trend of increased female employment. Women not working also want individual mobility because public transport remains poor," said Yadvinder Singh Guleria, senior vice-president and operating head (sales and marketing), at Honda Motorcyle and Scooter, India. Scooters account for 28 per cent of the two-wheeler market, against 17 per cent in 2010-11.
