Two-wheelers have always been in demand in the Indian market. People prefer bikes more due to low cost, better mileage and utility. Hero Motocorp is the biggest name in the country’s two-wheeler business, which has been presenting one of its great models to the customers for decades.
Although many models of Hero MotoCorp are famous among the people, but there is no answer for Hero Splendor and HF Deluxe. Both these bikes are available for sale in many variants. Due to advanced features, better mileage and low maintenance, people blindly trust these bikes.

If we look at the sales report for the month of October last, then the company has sold a total of 2,42,992 units of Splendor during this period, which was 2,43,407 units in the same month last year. On the other hand, the HF Deluxe, which is the cheapest bike offered by the company in the domestic market, also seemed to perform much better.
