In a regulatory filing, Hero MotoCorp said its manufacturing facilities will be closed from 15-18 August 2019.

“While this is part of the annual holiday calendar on account of Independence Day, Raksha Bandhan and the weekend, it also partly reflects the prevailing market demand scenario,” the company added.

Hero MotoCorp further said production planning is a matter of advance monitoring of the market dynamics and prudent demand forecasting.

“This helps us to plan our production well in advance, thereby enabling us to stay flexible both in terms of volumes and production schedules,” the company said.

Hero MotoCorp has been reducing its production due to decline in sales. In the April-July period this year, the two-wheeler market leader’s production was at 24,66,802 units, down 12.03 percent from the year-ago period.
