  • Hero takes car technology to two-wheelers: xBhp News

    Some features that the company will soon introduce in its two-wheelers include the engine stop-start system and the electronic immobiliser.

    Turning its focus on research and development after parting ways with Honda, Hero MotorCorp is set to bring technologies mostly seen in cars to two-wheelers as it gears up to showcase its innovative prowess.

    Some features that the company will soon introduce in its two-wheelers include the engine stop-start system and the electronic immobiliser.

    The engine stop-start system, also known as micro hybrid in top-end cars and SUVs, automatically shuts the engine when idling and turns it on when needed, improving fuel efficiency and cutting emissions.

    The electronic immobiliser is a security device that prevents the engine from running without the correct key.

    The company will also come up with scooters equipped with integrated braking system (IBS), which uses one brake handle for both the front and rear wheels.

    "All these innovations are done by Hero's own R&D. A lot of questions were asked when we started the journey on our own about how we would fare, but today we are ready to showcase what we are capable of," Hero MotoCorp managing director and CEO Pawan Munjal told PTI.

        Imagine Hero coming up with a 1300cc sports tourer with a shaft drive. Now thats the tech I was looking for.

        On a serious note... I think technology can hinder feedback and cause disruptions in the connection between man and bike... unless they're as serious and as good as the well made Jap technology.

        Is this the R&D that Hero is going through? I thought they'd be working on Design, Engine, Transmission and drive-train (all of which they've just copied and modified to suit till now). Waiting for an indigenous 600cc sports engine capable of placing them in the world arena... *pinch ... oh I just woke.

            I think we are being too harsh on hero. I am no fan of HMC but all the above tech address practical problems, which is a good thing.

              Let the products speak for themselves bro. HMC has taken sufficient time apart parting from the big H to concentrate on their new bikes. If the products are good, they'll win loyalists. Else, I don't see an issue with the above comments.

                    Irrespective of the capacity, developing an engine and then coming up with a gearbox which resonates with the purpose/nature of that machine is a big challenge ........... rest all are just features ............ Let's wait to see how much homework was done at Hero's R&D !!

                      I guess the R&D team at HMC are either under-estimating the potential of Indian motorcycle users or they are waiting for a perfect timing to launch their high-end innovations in accordance to their rivals. Wonder how long it would be until this innovation could be seen on roads

                      Getting angry at somebody is the same as getting angry with a bike that just won't go. You should stop and start thinking.
                      A good mechanic will let you watch even without charging you for it. | Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees youll ride alone.

                      It is funny to know that we've been imitated and copied so well
                      and surprising when we notice our mistakes are copied as well.

                        There not underestimating the enthusiast. They are overplaying indian sentimentality. Indians are overly sentimental towards hero. On top of it, most of the indian customer base prefers show before go. So adding bells and whistles is an integral part of making bikes in India. Gimmiks work. So they do it.

                          The engine start stop feature, to be honest is a simple feature. I had done a college project (with some help of course) on the same and fitted it to my old pulsar 150, it's amazing to see how the engine cranks when you pull the clutch, heard Bosch was working on the hero passion for the same

                          No its not about speed, its about turning and shifting those gears!

                            How much more Kms would this Engine Start/Stop will give? Even when you are idle at signal, bike does not consume lot of fuel. It sips very little fuel. Why not give a disc brake for the cost of this tech? I guess in a country obsessed with mileage nobody cares about safety.

                            The same feature installed in Scorpio, did not make substantial difference, apart from irritating the driver after the novelty wears out. See very few Hybrid badged Scorpios now.

                              Hero the name is enough. Beats Honda in all the aspects.
