The two-wheeler manufacturer has said that it is not gearing up for the upcoming festive season. The festive season is usually the time when the auto manufacturers in India registered the most sales.

The company also said that with several positive indicators, such as the decent monsoon resulting in encouraging agricultural activity in the major parts of the country, and the several government schemes in the social sector, the company is optimistic about higher demand in the coming months.

As the Covid-19 vaccination is gaining pace around the country and last-mile retail is opening up further, Hero MotoCorp believes the number of sales is likely to be in a positive zone in the coming months. Not only in the domestic market, with the economic activities reviving in faster pace around the world, the company believes its export numbers will increase as well.
