The allegations, as cited by the sources, come after the I-T Department conducted searches at multiple premises of the company.
The investigation, however, is still in progress, said the sources, who did not want to be named.
Hero MotoCorp has issued a clarification denying the reports and termed them "speculative".
"Allegations not borne out of any document served on us or our internal documents," it said, adding, "We will inform Exchanges once I-T Dept concludes its findings."
The I-T Dept conducted search operations at Hero MotoCorp premises for four days -- from March 23 to March 26. It covered more than 40 locations including Chairman and CEO Pawan Munjal's residence.
Sources had earlier told CNBC-TV18 that these searches were part of a tax evasion investigation against the country's largest two-wheeler automobiles manufacturer.
As part of the searches, a team of officials of the department was looking at financial documents and other business transactions of the company and its promoters.
Hero MotoCorp emerged as the world's largest two-wheeler manufacturer in 2001, in terms of units sold in a calendar year. It has since managed to maintain the title.
The company has so far sold over 100 million units across domestic and international markets and has a strong presence across 40 countries.
