The Hero World 2020 - a first-of-its-kind three-day event attended by Global Media, Investors, Dealers from India, Supply Chain partners and Global Distributors from around the world - got off to an action-packed start here today at the state-of-the-art R&D hub of Hero MotoCorp, the Centre of Innovation and Technology (CIT) in the northern Indian city of Jaipur, India.
The Hero World 2020 began with the Company reiterating its commitment to remain at the forefront of mass mobility, by showcasing to the global media three new products, a world-class product accessory, and a display of the entire global product portfolio of Hero MotoCorp - the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters.
This was followed by the showcasing of several product concepts and business initiatives that showcase the seeds of its vision for the future of mass mobility, and provided a glimpse into the universe of Hero MotoCorp including the R&D labs, test-tracks, and technology.
The showstopper among the new products unveiled today was the new Hero Xtreme 160R, which further strengthens the Company’s fast-growing presence in the premium motorcycle segment. The Xtreme 160R – that marks Hero MotoCorp’s entry into the popular 160cc motorcycle category - is an attractive product for youth across the globe, with its Xtreme performance, head turning aesthetics and agile handling.
Giving a complete makeover to the iconic Passion brand, the company also launched the new modern and vibrant Hero Passion Pro. Packed with a 110cc BS-VI engine, the Passion Pro is attractively priced at Rs. 64,990 (Self-drum Alloy) and Rs. 67,190 (Self-disc Alloy).
The third product to be launched was the versatile and stylish Hero Glamour 125cc, marking the generational upgrade of the motorcycle. The new Hero Glamour now comes equipped with a more efficient and sturdier BS-VI engine and will be available at Rs. 68,900 (Self-drum Alloy) and Rs. 72,400 (Self-disc Alloy).
Providing even more excitement for enthusiast and building on the cult of XPulse 200, Hero MotoCorp also launched the Hero XPulse 200 Rally Kit. Available as a complete kit for aspiring racers at Rs 38,000, the Rally Kit will be retailed at selected dealership from March onward. The Rally Kit adds to the XPulse 200’s supreme off-road capability and makes it the ideal motorcycle for amateurs and enthusiast to take-up off-roading.
