Hero Motor is gearing up for a life without Honda and is currently developing a motorcycle in alliance with the Austrian based engine design firm, AVL and is expected to launch its own motorcycle by 2014.
Speaking to the media, Hero MotoCorp’s MD and CEO, Pawan Munjal said, “We are working with different technology partners. Our first bike without Honda technology will be launched in 2014. We have already started work with AVL and we are happy with the progress.”
While it is not yet confirmed, whether Hero MotoCorp is working on a low cost entry level bike or a larger capacity one, but one thing is sure, people who have been loyal customers of Hero MotoCorp, would be expecting similar reliability, performance and smoothness, they have come to experience with its existing portfolio.
