Hero MotoCorp, the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, reported a sales decline of over 19 per cent for the month of February 2020.

According to Hero MotoCorp, the company has already moved ahead to manufacturing only BS6 vehicles, and stopped production of all BS4 vehicles in the month of February 2020. The Bharat Stage VI (BS6) emission regulations will come into effect from April 1, 2020 and no BS4 vehicles can be sold or registered from that. The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) issue has also adversely affected Hero's production at the company's manufacturing facilities, the company said. Alternate sources for procuring components have been started, and component manufacturers in China are also expected to resume normal supplies soon.
