Since parting ways with Honda a couple of years back, there has been few major launches from the Hero MotoCorp stable.
With increase in competition in all the segments of the market, India’s no.1 two-wheel manufacturer is certainly finding it difficult to hold on to its position. Now, as we are aware of the fact that Hero are already in a technical partnership with Eric Buell Racing (EBR), it seems that they are in plans to introduce a 250cc offering for the Indian market.
If rumor mills are to be believed this 250cc motorcycle is expected to debut in February 2014. What’s even more interesting is the fact that Hero engineers are directly working in collaboration with ERB in the US of A. This project is also personally being overseen by Hero CEO Mr. Pawan Munjal, with this 250cc offering being termed as an ‘ambitious international business plan for global penetration’ for Hero Moto Corp.
The fact still remains with the increase in competition of bigger capacity bikes in the sub-continent, only time will tell if this 250cc offering turns out to be the next big thing. Furthermore this being a Hero-ERB motorcycle it will be quite interesting to see how this motorcycle also fares in the land of uncle Sam.
