In the same month last year, it had sold 5,29,215 units, Hero MotoCorp said in a statement. "This is also the first time that any two-wheeler manufacturer has exceeded the landmark six lakh unit sales in a month," it added.
The company's previous highest sales for any month was recorded in May this year when it sold 5,57,890 units. Hero MotoCorp Senior Vice President (Marketing and Sales) Anil Dua said: "This sales momentum has been helped by our star brands Splendor and Passion and also by the new products."
"Our recently-introduced five-year warranty and our brand campaigns have also created customer preference for the Hero two-wheelers," he added.
