Hero MotoCorp has updated their 100cc, bread and butter engines powering their fast selling commuter motorcycles such as the Splendor, Passion, Dawn etc. Hero claims that the updated 100cc commuter motorcycle engine now produces higher power and torque figures than before along with best in class fuel efficiency and higher top speed. The recently launched Splendor Pro Classic already saw some improvements in the power figures and now the rest of the bikes from the class should get this update.
Also, Hero MotoCorp has registered a sales milestone of over 6 lakh units being dispatched in the month of September 2014. With the festive season, Hero has registered a strong growth as opposed to 4,68,670 units dispatched during September 2013.
The company still has more than 5 product launches (refreshed versions included) for the rest of the fiscal year which should give their sales growth some momentum.
