Commenting on the launch, Ashok Bhasin, Head – Sales & Customer Care, Hero MotoCorp said, “Every second motorcycle sold in the country is a Hero bike. Within the domestic motorcycle market, Hero MotoCorp is a dominant leader in the 125cc segment with more than 55% market share. The launch of the new stylish and performance-oriented Super Splendor is a significant step to further consolidate this leadership. The new Super Splendor retains the core attributes of one of India’s most reliable brands – Splendor – and is surely going to appeal to customers across the country.”
Back in 2012 when Hero and Honda split, Hero’s future as the World’s largest 2 Wheeler Manufacturer was a bit ambiguous. In 2014, Hero opened up their R&D division in Rajasthan on an 100+ acre facility, as a starting point for their Own In-House Designed Engine platforms. 3 years since then Hero had no real launches and they still stands strong as the Market leader in the Domestic motorcycle market. With the launch of the New Splendor, Hero now will hit the market with its new developed models in months to come. We already have high hopes from the Xpulse concept. Also, we expect the Passion Pro, Passion ProX and Hero Xtreme to be launched during the course of next 2 quarters.
