Hero MotoCorp sold 5,36,499 two-wheelers in September 2023

In September 2023, Hero MotoCorp experienced sales growth in both the motorcycle and scooter segments, driven by increased demand during India’s festive season. Favourable factors such as a good monsoon, rising disposable income, and favourable economic conditions also contributed to this sales boost. Popular models like Splendor, Passion, and Pleasure continued to perform well. Despite intense competition, Hero MotoCorp’s ability to adapt to market changes and introduce new products aligned with consumer preferences helped the company maintain its substantial market share.
