    Default Hero---Piaggio

    Would you not buy a super dupper Off-Road / Sports bike clad around The ZMA / Extreme Engine Possibly LC & 4 -Valve with the help of some well known Motorcycle Desgin Studio for a considerably cheap price from Hero. This group already builds Low to Mid end products for BRP-Rotax also Tire 1 & 2 suppliers in the Automobile Industry. What happens if they go with Rotax Engine in Future ... Or .... If they sell everything to Piaggo Group. Now Dont tell me you guys wouldnt ride a Hero Aprillia. The Chinese and Korenans have already taken a big share upto 250cc MX market here.You can buy 3 of them for the price of buying one Honda. Imagine if Hero also jumps into this fray whos product is far better than the Chinese almost in par or better than the Koreans. The Munjals arent that stupid. They should be knowing and doing something right to be No.1 for along time. Note : I am not a Big Fan of Hero Honda.

    Cheers - TZ750

    Honda will sell its entire stake in the motorcycle maker to the Hero Group's founding family and investment funds by as early as March, the report added.

    A standing agreement to provide technical support to Hero Honda for development and production until 2014 will not be renewed, Nikkei said.

    I seriously wish Hero sets up a new JV with some other international giant such as BMW rather than making the hero passion and hero ZMR!

    The real test for Hero would be when it will have to launch bikes with its own technology. Hope they go through the learning curve fast.

    @Deepakumar

    Patents (if any) would be retained by the technology provider (mostly Honda), in return it would get a royalty payment for using the technology (which Hero Honda still pays Honda and will mostly continue to do so after the break-up)..
