Hero indicated that the price hike is a result of the increment in commodity prices and various other input costs. "There has been a steady rise in commodity costs across the spectrum, including steel, aluminium, plastics, and precious metals. We have already accelerated our savings programme under the Leap-2 umbrella, and will continue to work on mitigating the impact, with the objective to reduce the burden on the customers and protect our margins," Hero MotoCorp said in a press note on Wednesday.

"In order to partially offset the impact of the commodity costs, we will be increasing the prices of our products by up to 1500, with effect from January 1, 2021. The increase will vary across models, and the exact quantum will be communicated to our dealers in due course," Hero MotoCorp further added.
