Year-to-date numbers paint a positive picture for the early part of FY2024 with 9,15,581 units sold so far cumulatively since April 1 as against 9,050326 units in the same period last year. The strong showing however has come on the back of a growing demand for Hero’s scooters in the domestic market while exports have shrunk from 40,370 units in April-May 2022 to 21,088 units in 2023.
