Hero managed to sell 61,83,784 units last year.

Of the 6.18 million units sold last year, 1.2 million units were sold between October and November 2013. While the festive season did not bring much cheer to the car makers, Hero managed to sell 6.25 lakh units in October 2013 thus becoming the first-ever manufacturer to cross the 6 lakh unit/month sales figure in India.

2013 also saw Hero Motocorp enter new markets such as Central & Latin America and Africa, and 2014 will see the company enter further such markets.

This year will also see Hero go into a product launching blitzkrieg. In October last year, Hero had showcased 14 of its new products which would eventually make their way into the market this year. These include refreshes for the Glamour, Passion Pro, Xtreme, HF-Dawn, HF-Deluxe, Splendor and Karizma models.
