The company says that the dip in sales figures is reflective of the “inclement weather conditions in July" as there was unprecedented rainfall and floods in certain parts of the country. This led to damage of crops in several states, and also resulted in decline in customer footfalls at the dealerships.

The company expects that new product launches in the upcoming festive season along with innovative finance schemes is expected to result in improvement in market demand.

July also saw the launch of the company's first co-developed motorcycle with Harley-Davidson - the X440. The motorcycle was launched at the company's state-of-the-art Hero Center for Innovation and Technology (CIT) in Jaipur. Production of the motorbike will start in September at the company’s Garden Factory at Neemrana, Rajasthan while deliveries will commence in October of 2023.

The motorcycle can be booked online till August 3, 2023, on the official website of Harley-Davidson with a booking amount of 5000. The motorcycle is available in three variants – Denim, Vivid and S.

The company has increased the price of the motorcycle which was initially launched at an introductory price. The bike will now retail at a starting price of 2,39,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The price increase of 10,500 will apply to all the variants of the bike.
