The country's largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp on Thursday reported 16.9 per cent increase in sales last month at 7,15,718 units as compared to the same period of last year. The company had sold 6,12,204 units in September 2019.

The two wheeler major said in order to partially offset the rising input costs and commodity prices, it has made an upward revision in the ex-showroom prices of its motorcycles and scooters by up to 2 per cent with the exact quantum varying on the basis of the model and specific market. The revised prices are effective from October 1, it added.
