There is a huge difference after the breakup. The so called Hero bikes are coming with parts which are not fitted appropriately, stickers will start pealing out from the bike after the first service. Moreover customer service is bad. Showrooms have started giving booked vehicles for test rides. No trained mechanics available (specially in the new show rooms). You cant choose your favorite color and have to book the color which is available in the showroom and the showroom people will start giving excuses "it will take 3 months for the other colors to come".

Only plus point I see in Hero now is the engine.
