The total number of motorcycles sold in August this year in India and other global markets was 452,186 units, while in the scooter segment, the automaker registered 36,531 units. In August 2022, Hero MotoCorp sold 430,799 units of motorcycles, while the scooter sales for the company recorded 31,809 units in the same month last year. Clearly, Hero MotoCorp registered growth in both motorcycle and scooter sales last month compared to August 2022.

However, despite the growth in sales of both motorcycles and scooters last month, the overall sales in this fiscal are still slow compared to the company’s two-wheeler sales last year. The homegrown two-wheeler brand has further stated that it has sold 22,32,601 units of motorcycles and scooters so far in this fiscal between April and August, down from 22,98,381 units registered in the same period of last financial year. The auto company hopes that there will be an uptick in customer demand during the upcoming festive season. It said that better monsoon across most parts of the country and decent agricultural activity is also likely to contribute towards positive customer sentiments.
