The country's largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp today reported its highest ever monthly sales at 5,56,644 units in May, registering a growth of 11.28%.
The company had sold 5,00,234 units in May 2011, Hero MotoCorp said in a statement.
"The company's sales in May this year surpassed its previous highest of 5,51,557, recorded only last month -- April, 2012," it added.
Commenting on its numbers, Hero MotoCorp Senior Vice President (Marketing and Sales) Anil Dua said: "We have been setting new industry benchmarks month after month which is an indication not only of our progress in our journey, but also the trust of our valued customers."
The company is cautiously optimistic that the expected normal monsoon and the consequent good harvest should perk up the sentiment in the coming months, he added.
"The first two consecutive months of the new fiscal recording highest-ever sales for the company has clearly been a great start for us," Dua said.
