Delivering on its commitment to bring revolutionary products in the two-wheeler market, Hero Moto Corp Ltd (HMCL), the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, on Wednesday unveiled a slew of game-changing two-wheelers across-the-spectrum. The next-generation range of two-wheelers includes the new 250-cc sports bike ‘HX250R’, the break-through Liquid-cooled Turbo Charged Diesel Concept Bike ‘RNT’; India’s first series hybrid scooter ‘LEAP’ and 110cc scooter ‘Dash’.

Mr. Pawan Munjal, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, Hero MotoCorp Ltd. said “We have been able to post solid sales in the quarter in a relatively dull market, and our PAT and total turnover figures are up from the corresponding quarter last year. However, our EBIDTA has been affected due to partial recovery of rising metal costs and currency fluctuation. We continue to sustain our market-leadership quarter after quarter with a strong focus on performance and profitability, and going forward, we plan to further strengthen our leadership and demonstrate our prowess in innovation and technology.

While the industry overall is under constant pressure due to a number of reasons, we are confident of and committed to deliver value to our stakeholders. For this, we will continue to challenge the existing benchmarks and innovate constantly to pave way for improved performance.

We are excited about the upcoming Auto Expo where we will be showcasing our vision for the future of two-wheelers. Only yesterday, we gave you a glimpse of the range of products that we are developing. But there’s more to come – several more products, including new concepts which you will get to see at the Delhi Motor Show in February.”

The Q3 of FY’14 marked several milestones in Hero MotoCorp’s journey towards next-generation technological excellence.
