“The completion of FY’16 marked five years of sustained leadership in our bold new solo journey that we embarked upon in 2011. In addition to consolidating our market leadership in terms of volumes, we have also worked on making Hero MotoCorp a more profitable company. In FY’16, we made strong progress towards our strategic goals and delivered impressive performance, both in terms of sales and financials in the second half of the year while the industry continues to remain sluggish and sentiments are still subdued.

For FY’17, therefore, we continue to remain cautiously optimistic. The industry hopes for a good monsoon, which may help market sentiments to improve towards the second half of this fiscal.”
