New Delhi, June 24 (IANS) Two-wheeler manufacturing company Hero MotoCorp on Monday said that it will increase ex-showroom prices of select motorcycles and scooters by up to Rs 1,500 with effect from July 1.

The scooters segment experienced a nearly 11 per cent decline, with 26,937 units sold in May 2024 compared to 30,138 units in the previous year.

Domestic sales also witnessed a drop of nearly 5.7 per cent, with 4.79 lakh units sold versus 5.08 lakh units year-on-year. However, exports soared by 67 per cent, with 18,673 units sold compared to 11,165 units in May last year.
