Two-wheeler major Hero MotoCorp on Monday reported that it made a record number of retail sales of scooters and motorcycles on August 9, the day when it also celebrated its 10th anniversary. The company sold more than one lakh units of two-wheelers in the domestic as well as global markets to customers in a non-festive period.

Hero MotoCorp achieved the feat by placing exactly 1,845 of its Splendor motorcycles to mark 10 years' journey as a solo entity at its manufacturing facility in Andhra Pradesh's Chittoor.
