This will be Hero's fourth price hike this year. The two-wheeler giant previously hiked prices in September by up to 1,000, citing rising input costs as the reason. Hero MotoCorp's two-wheeler range starts with the HF 100, HF Deluxe, Splendor+, and Glamour, going up to the XPulse 200 4V in the motorcycle segment. The scooter segment starts with the Pleasure+ 110, and Maestro Edge 110, going up to the Destini 125.

Prices hikes are most common towards the end of the year with manufacturers setting up for the new calendar year. However, supply-chain constraints still remain a reality in the post-pandemic era and inputs costs for raw materials have considerably gone up across the market. Expect other two-wheeler players to announce price increments across their respect motorcycle and scooters in the coming weeks.
