Hero MotoCorp to Launch 2 New Products by September 2017
Hero MotoCorp recently discontinued 10 bikes from its line-up and as per the latest details available, the brand will launch 2 new products by September 2017. Hero has not mentioned what products they would be launching but the brand is quite confident that they will regain the market share and will maintain their growth in the Indian market. This was the first time when they have officially talked about their launch plans for the country.
The brand revealed their plans to Economic Times:”Two will be introduced in the market leading up to the festive season in September. Following these, we will launch an all-new 200cc motorcycle around the Auto Expo 2018,” the company official said.

The statement has once again reignited the dreams that were buried down in the hearts of Hero fans around the country. They made it clear that the 200cc bike (Xtreme 200S) will be launched at 2018 Autos Expo, this means that the 2 new products could be the much-awaited HX250R and the 2nd product could be a moto-scooter (ZIR150) or a 125cc scooter (Dare 125).
But as of now, none of these products have never been spied while testing in India, so the new products could be based on the Splendor, Passion, or HF Deluxe series. The new products could also be the BS4 versions of Hero Hunk and Hero Xtreme (both these bikes were recently removed from the official website).

We feel that it is high time now and Hero should launch all-new products like HX250R, Hastur, Dare, ZIR, Xtreme 200S, only then they will be able to grow rapidly in the premium motorcycle and scooter segment. Right now, they are surviving on only 4 bikes: Splendor, Passion, Glamour, HF Deluxe, and 3 scooters: Maestro, Duet, and Pleasure. The growth scale of Hero MotoCorp was just under 1 percent in the last fiscal. The long term growth needs some boost and launching all-new products will definitely help the brand in this area.
