The two-wheeler giant registered a growth of 7.21 per cent in sales for January 2013 on a Year-on-Year basis for the corresponding period in 2012 when it sold 5,20,272 units. 

 

Anil Dua, Senior Vice-President (Marketing & Sales), Hero MotoCorp, said, “With this record performance, we have made a confident beginning to the new year.
