Hero MotoCorp has increased the prices of its models in the Indian market yet again! The latest price hike has made Hero’s scooters and motorcycles more expensive by around Rs. 175 to Rs. 3,350, depending on the model and variant. The smallest increase in prices is seen by Hero HF Deluxe, while the prices of the Xtreme 160R, Xtreme 200S, Xpulse 200, and Xpulse 200T have gone up the highest.
On the rest of Hero’s motorcycle range, the price increase is as high as Rs. 1,700. As for the scooter range, the price hike ranges from Rs. 800 to Rs. 1,650. The smallest increase in prices is seen on the Destini 125, while the Hero Maestro Edge (facelift model, Prismatic + Connected variant) has recorded the biggest price hike.
It should be noted that the prices of Hero motorcycles and scooters had been revised just three months ago. Since the start of this year, almost every car and two-wheeler manufacturer has announced multiple price hikes on their respective lineups. The biggest reasons for the constantly increasing prices of automobiles in India are the rising costs of raw materials as well as rising transportation costs. As the prices of metals, fuel, etc., continue to rise in our country, we might see a few more price hikes in the Indian automobile market before the end of this year.
