Reshuffled Hero Lineup on the Official Website
Hero’s major volume generators include Splendor, HF Deluxe and Passion. Glamour is even a highest selling motorcycle but its new version is yet to be receive the same treatment as the older one. The rise in prices of the new version could see a fall in its sales. Hero MotoCorp is expected to make a deal with VW regarding the Ducati brand, helping them improve their image worldwide.
