New Delhi [India], June 23 : India's largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp on Thursday said it will increase the prices of its motorcycles and scooters by up to Rs 3,000 per unit across the entire range effective from July 1.
"Hero MotoCorp will make an upward revision in the ex-showroom prices of its motorcycles and scooters, with effect from July 1, 2022. The price revision will be up to Rs 3000," Hero MotoCorp said in a statement.
"The exact quantum of increase will be subject to the specific model and market," the company said.
Hero MotoCorp said the "price revision has been necessitated to partially offset the steadily growing overall cost inflation, including commodity prices."
