Hero MotoCorp, a while back, unveiled its 110 CC Gearless scooter and 150 CC motorcycle in London and this surprise was definitely expected this soon. The Hero Maestro scooter and Hero Impulse motorcycle are yet to be launched in India and interestingly the latest buzz around the brand hints that soon they will be launching a 250 CC motorcycle.
Hero and Honda have parted ways and this is said to be the origin of this rivalry which will be started off with this product line-up. The 250 CC bike will be the most expensive product from Hero’s stable and is expected to be introduced before the end of 2012.
As per sources the company has hired four senior research and development experts from Honda in the last six months and they have been sincerely working on the project. Honda already has the Honda CBR250R in the market at Rs.1.5 Lakhs and launching a 250 CC bike at a competitive pricing will be a smart move.
One of the sources spoke “The company (Hero) is looking to completely revamp its existing R&D structure. So, it has recruited four Japanese officials of Honda to strategies and work closely with Hero to have its own R&D wing in place,”
We already know that till 2014 Honda will continue providing technical support to hero group but besides that the company needs to have an establishment of its own as after a few years it will have to become self dependent. With these new products the company will definitely revamp its line-up and will come into then lime light.
