    I guess the reason for this is that Hero group has contributed nothing to the motorcycling scene after Hunk which was based on the engine of CBZ xtreme which itself was based on Unicorn's engine. HH has everything they could desire and yet they keep spending on Stupid ads rather than bringing new technology. Bajaj and TVS catered to performance biking even if it meant taking risks. HH always played safe milking its established brands and choosing to spend on endorsements.

    After break up, when bikes seen with just Hero on the decal and not Hero Honda, that will be very interesting to see consumer's reaction.

    Patience pays; probably 2011 is going to be year of motorcycles, just like 2010 year of cars such as Beat, Polo, Punto, Figo, Manza, Linea, Cruze, Jazz - Whoa!!! so many!!! Mind you this apart from heavy weights such as Bandit.

    Already there're confirmed news on CBR250R, Mojo, CBR600, Ninja 650R, GT650R & ST7 & spec running on P300 & RTR upgrade. Also BAL & RE are increasing their production capacity which shows the potential of the market.

    So IMO, year 2011 & 12 should be excellent & hence I said - Patience Pays

    I am not a Hero Honda fan, but they do need some credit,

    If it was not for the CBZ, 150cc bikes with disc brakes would still be a dream. maybe

    I would not favour any bike manufacturer be it honda or the hero group.
    In the end they will stand where they deserve to. I wont favour the hero group just because they are Indian. If after the split they launch bikes like zmr-rr 300 with 300 stickers and a new paint job being the only upgrade, then definitely i would hate them, but if they come up with Hero zmr-rr 300 with 30bhp and a nice handling chassis and adequate tech then they would really be appreciated by not just me, by everybody.
    Hero start working hard on your RnD if you really want to be a Hero!!!!!!

    to me HERO is not that dump in judging its future it might have its own plans one will not easily let go its dominant position , indian players are on par [almost ] with japs here. I hope hero wont disappoint us .

    A very apt quote here!

    "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the oportunity in every difficulty"

    I hope Hero is Optimist here and they have their plans ready. And as said, Hero isnt dumb to still not have their plans laid out.

    After the divorce from HONDA, all i see is HERO taking engine of ZMR and wrapping new plastics all over it and calling it by 5 names, cuz its the only bike left with the "synonyms" potential now in the HERO garage !
    May be ZMR-Dawn, ZMR- Deluxe, Super ZMR, ZMR- Joy etc !

    Then with HONDA UNICORNS ENGINE,( We already have Xtreme, Hunk and Achiever, expect 5-6 more !)

    I'am also expecting atleast dozens more clad in the same lawn mover (100 CC passion,splendour ETC) engine in the coming 2 years.
