Although the company is trying to break the previous sales records, Hero MotoCorp has announced a price hike on all their products by 0.5%.
The price correction has been made due to raised input costs in recent times. Still, the company is optimistic and is expecting a positive month on month growth for October 2014 considering the positive festive season purchase sentiment. The company sold over 6 lakh units in the month of September 2014 and expect the number to increase this month.
