We have made a good beginning with this strong performance and are pleased with the continuing trend of over half a million unit sales every month for the past nine months."
The Splendor and the Passion bikes have been selling well for the company helping it maintain the first position in the market. The dual purpose (on-off road) bike Impulse is the latest arrival from Hero Motocorp.
