The two wheeler major said it has moved ahead to manufacturing only BS-VI vehicles and stopped production of all BS-IV two-wheelers in February.
The ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) issue had adversely impacted production at the company's manufacturing facilities last month.
"Since then, substantial progress has been made in developing alternate sources for procuring components. Meanwhile, the component makers in China, having restarted production, are also expected to resume normal supplies soon," Hero MotoCorp said.
