Hero MotoCorp to launch 12 bikes by 2014

2014 Hero Motocorp motorcycles

Hero MotoCorp- India’s largest two wheeler manufacturer to strengthen its hold on the two wheeler market plans to launch not one or two, but a dozen models across various segments by March 2014. Off late Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India pipped Bajaj Auto to become the country’s second largest two wheeler manufacturer and has been aggressive launching economic and variants of its existing lineup such as the Dream Neo and the CB Trigger. It was but evident for Hero Motocorp to pull up its socks further after the discontinuation of their technological partnership in 2010. Despite slipping to third position Bajaj Auto too has been rolling out economical variants of the Discover model and the soon to be launched Pulsar 375 in the performance segment.

The good news here is that Mr. Pawan Munjal, MD and SEO stated that the company would be laying emphasis on the 150cc plus segment. From the recently published spy pictures of the facelift Karizma and ZMR under tests, it’s a certain possibility that we might get to see the Hero-EBR collaborated 250cc motorcycle very soon. Talking of other motorcycles in the 150cc and above bracket, it’s possible that Hero would continue to use the tried and tested engine of the Unicorn doing duty in a tweaked tune on the CBZ Xtreme and the Hunk to power the upcoming models in the segment.

Mr. Munjal seemed excited on prospects of the festive season which we feel should see the launch of the facelifted Karizma and the ZMR.

Actually they are going to just update the existing bikes and not launch new


Ok which bike is in the photo here?


Anyone willing to bet? 10 of them will be their 100cc/110cc siblings with new engines that are reportedly in development.


go hero go ......


When will Hero learn that launching new models is not just new clothing with old body. If they can't engineer with engine technology they are bound to sink. There would be no takers even on shares. Learn Mr Munjal. Setup engine reasearch center now. These dozen model will just postpose your death by small time.


ok, so let's welcome

-hero splendour ++/pro/super duper

-passion +/pro+/extreme

-CBZ xtreme+/xtremest,


-Karizma abcdefghr,


Sounds like double whammy for competition, RC390 together with P375 can pre-empt any competition. Bajaj-KTM is doing unimaginable things within the premium section. If this can be offered at about 2.5 lakh OTR, then it'll definitely have an effect on Ninja 300.. btw, have u people thought about milage of the bike ? It has to be atleast 40km per 1 ltr


Hero Hunk is available at present time or not?


please hero give us an engine kill switch
