  • Recovery due to festive season and pent-up demand: Domestic two-wheelers registered a strong turnaround in Oct-Dec 20 period, on the back of robust festive season and pent-up demand. Also, Hero MotoCorp's move to hike prices from January could have led to pre-buying in December. 
  • Special dividend: Hero MotoCorp announced an interim dividend of Rs 70 per share, including Rs 5 special dividend, as the company touched the 100-million units milestone in the period.  The company has fixed February 16, 2021 as the record date.

Continuing the path of recovery from the zero sales in April, Indian two-wheeler manufacturers have now shown a robust growth in the preceding two quarters. However, the two-wheeler  industry is grappling with steep increases in input costs. Hero MotoCorp's sales volumes have seen a 5% drop in Jan-21. Going forward, the company expects input costs to remain under pressure due to the rising prices of commodities and fuel. The price increase on its range of products that will partially offset these cost pressures. The measures announced in Union Budget 2022 are also expected to provide a boost to demand in the upcoming quarters. Given its leadership position, Hero MotoCorp is well positioned to take advantage of rising demand, as the economy improves further.
