    400 engineers already! Looks like Hero was prepared for the Divorce from Honda. It is not unexpected though.

    Its tough for Honda to Catch up with Hero and this will be clear by 2014 where Hero has slated for some 'exciting' released. Hero still have mass appeal and will have. And I dont completely agree that Hero is hero because of Honda.

    Hero still sells its whatever motorcycles like crazy with their new logo and no signs of Honda on them. Honda is known for quality, but that is not entirely true for its Indian motorcycle market, I still never considered Honda because of their crapathetic A.S.S.

    Honda shared its 150 cc engine with Hero, which Honda developed for their Unicorn(CBF150) Models, Hero used this same engine for its 3 models but why Hero failed to make it a success the way Honda Unicorn achieved.Still Hero is free to use that 150CC engine.

    Hero didn't realized that the name "Honda" was acting as their Brand Ambassador.

    Now all the best for Hero.

    I am sure Hero will be able to remain on top slot in India for some more coming years but after 3-4 years it will be getting tough for them.I wish Hero-EBR churns out some good models really soon specially 250cc

    one also needs to think upon what one margins one earns from a product

    I for one would be happy to earn 20% by selling one bike rather than 8% on 2 bikes (I guess some MD already said this

    Mr. Pawan Munjal is in a delusion. Little does he know that people are into a paradigm shift about bikes. That adding a fairing and garish decals is no tech advance. Only giving a 5years warranty aint gonna intrigue the enthusiast

    Honda was not doing social service, it was getting money as huge royalties.

    I dont think Hero's 150cc bikes have failed, they sell pretty well (Xtreme especially) and almost on par of Unicorn. I owned Xtreme twice

    It's now time for Indian companies to wake up, pull their socks and ready for competitions..

    no more license raaj, Hero should have been realized this long back before honda take divorce. as government is opening entry for foreign company through FDI to setup their venture here..

    In this scenario why any foreign company will make joint venture with indian company when they can setup their own company. Hero should have started long back but "JAB JAGO TAB SABERA"

    It is alarm for all indian companies those who have tieup with foreign company to setup their own R&D centre and developed a product which will cater needs of local people.

    local solution to local problem.. and keep your cost down and make a competition to Global Market not only India..

    Good answer. Honda was taking tax on each bike. Moreover not only Hero but honda was also getting benefit as not only it was getting money but also publicity by hero.
    And regarding failure then extreme and Hunk sells in huge numbers and are having better performance than unicorn. Extreme and hunk combined sells more than unicorn. From where the news is there they failed. Man now new extreme is seen in almost regular intervals on road.
