The sales of Hero MotoCorp has fallen 12% in June 2019 as its sold 88,306 unit fewer than what it sold in June 2018. This fall account to 12% which is a significant fall for any manufacturer. This downfall is due to increased prices of bikes since last one year. Last year in June Hero sold 7,04,562 units whereas in June 2019 only 6,16,256 units moved out of the showrooms.
This price hike is done owing to increase in input costs which happens for most of the manufacturers. It is not yet clear whether the price on recently launched XPulse and Xtreme 200S will be hiked or not.
