In August, Hero MotoCorp commenced dispatch of its new premium motorcycle, the Xtreme 200R, to dealerships across the country. The Xtreme 200R is attractively priced at Rs. 89,900/- (ex-showroom Delhi).

Hero MotoCorp will soon launch two new 125cc scooters to provide more excitement during the upcoming festive season.

With the peak festive season coming in the months of October and November this year, the Company expects to maintain the trajectory with healthy double-digit growth in the coming months.

Reiterating its commitment towards the rehabilitation efforts in flood-affected Kerala, Hero MotoCorp has initiated special benefits for its customers in the state.

HERO MOTOCORP FURTHER STRENGTHENS MARKET LEADERSHIP WITH YET ANOTHER GLOBAL MILESTONE

BECOMES THE FIRST TWO-WHEELER COMPANY TO SURPASS THE 750,000 MARK IN MONTHLY SALES

CLOCKS 769,138 UNITS IN SEPTEMBER 2018 – ITS HIGHEST-EVER SALES IN ANY MONTH​

Continuing its strong momentum, Hero MotoCorp Ltd, the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, sold 769,138 units of motorcycles and scooters in September 2018 – its highest-ever sales in any single month.

This is the 5th occasion overall, and the 3rd in the current fiscal (FY’19) in which the Company has crossed the seven-lakh sales mark in a month.

This is also the first time that a single two-wheeler company has surpassed the 7,50,000 mark in monthly sales.

Hero MotoCorp has already crossed 4.2 million sales in the first six months of this financial year (Apr - Sept’18). With the peak festival season coming up in the months of October and November, the Company is confident of setting yet another global benchmark in retail sales during the period this year.

In the month of September, Hero MotoCorp commenced the nationwide sales of its new premium motorcycle – the Xtreme 200R. Coinciding with this, the Company also launched a multimedia campaign for the Xtreme 200R, featuring India’s cricket captain Virat Kohli, across TV, Print, Outdoor and Digital platforms.

There has recently been a circular from the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) regarding increase in the personal accident cover for two-wheelers, which if implemented, is likely to increase the cost to the customer. The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) has already taken up the matter with IRDA for a review, and we are hopeful of a positive outcome.

The long term macro fundamentals of the two-wheeler industry continue to remain strong and we are optimistic of a good festival season.

HERO MOTOCORP DRIVES INDUSTRY GROWTH WITH 2ND SUCCESSIVE MONTH OF MORE THAN 7-LAKH SALES

SELLS 734,668 UNITS IN OCTOBER 2018, WITH A GROWTH OF OVER 16%

ENTERS THE 125CC SCOOTER SEGMENT WITH THE NEW DESTINI 125​

New Delhi, November 1, 2018: Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, today reported yet another month of landmark 7-lakh sales.

Hero MotoCorp dispatched 734,668 units of motorcycles and scooters in October 2018 – a growth of 16.4% over the corresponding month of the previous fiscal (October 2017) when the Company had sold 631,105 units.

Fortifying its market leadership with a strong sales growth trajectory, this is the fourth occasion in this fiscal (FY’19), and sixth overall, when the Company has registered sales of more than seven lakh units of two-wheelers in a month.

Coming immediately after the Company’s highest-ever monthly sales (769,138 in September 2018), the growth provides a positive outlook on the industry, which has witnessed a sub-par festive season sales thus far this year.

Compared to the previous year, retail off-take across the country during the initial few weeks of the festive season have been moderate, primarily on account of the significant increase in Insurance cost, followed by the associated confusion over the coverage amount and period in the matter of two-wheeler insurance. We hope to see a positive turnaround in the sentiments and retail sales to pick up in the days leading up to Diwali.

Hero MotoCorp also marked its entry into the 125cc scooter segment during the month, with the launch of its new 125cc scooter – Destini 125 – in the Delhi-NCR region. Attractively priced at Rs. 54,650/- (Ex-Showroom Delhi-NCR) for the Lx variant and Rs. 57,500/- (Ex-Showroom Delhi-NCR) for the Vx variant, the scooter will be available in the rest of country over the next 3-4 weeks.

Kurukshetra, November 16, 2018: Pawan Munjal, one of India’s foremost corporate leaders, was awarded with an honorary doctorate at the 16th Convocation of the National Institute Of Technology (NIT), Kurukshetra, today.

The degree was presented to Mr. Munjal - the Chairman, MD, and CEO, of Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, by Mr. Jagdish Khattar, the Chairperson of the Board of Governors, NIT, Kurukshetra, and its Director Dr. Satish Kumar.

Speaking to the students and other dignitaries at the institute, Mr. Munjal said, “The real world outside this campus is going to be very demanding and challenging. You will therefore need to be prepared, mentally and physically - to face the challenges and hold your own. Don’t just be managers and try to manage and maintain the status quo, but be the agents of change and disruption.”

He also urged institutes of higher educations in the country to “encourage the students to spend more time on live projects, learn about the new global developments and trends in technology and innovations that are transforming the world today. While our students learn the basics, let us provide them with the resources in order to enable them to take risks and operate in an environment that does not limit their true potential.”

Mr. Munjal was also the Chief Guest of the Convocation ceremony and visited the campus and its facilities. He later interacted separately with the students.

Hero MotoCorp Ltd., has been the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer for the past 17 years. Since its inception in 1984, it has sold over 85 million two-wheelers in cumulative sales. The Company has also rapidly expanded its global footprint to 37 countries across the globe. It is one of the largest corporate promoters of sports across the world.

Established in 1963, NIT Kurukshetra was accredited with the status of ‘Institute of National Importance’ in 2008. It is one of the 30 National Institutes of Technology established and administered by Government of India.

Earlier during the year, Mr. Munjal was also awarded with an honorary ‘Doctor of Science’ by Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University, Katra, in recognition of his “invaluable contributions to the nation and strong commitment towards socio-economic development of the country.
