Hero MotoCorp will lose its top spot in monthly domestic two-wheeler sales to Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) in September for the first time since May 2020, stated Elara Capital in a report on Friday, based on national vehicular registry Vahan's data.

"September retail figures for HMCL (Hero MotoCorp) were at 222,712 units until September 28 while HMSI's 255,909 units," the report added.
