New Hero Motorcycle Launches In Argentina
Hero MotoCorp undertakes design and development at its R&D centres in India and Germany. Manufacturing is distributed across plants in India, Colombia, and Bangladesh. While Indian Euro emission norms are more advanced, in Argentina, compliance is to Euro 3 and Euro 4 standards. This is a great business opportunity as most bikes that failed a cost efficiency test to be upgraded in terms of Euro compliancy have over time been dropped from the exhaustive product lineup in India.
Sanjay Bhan, Head – Global Business, Hero MotoCorp, said, “We are happy to rapidly expand our operations in Argentina. We have already made significant progress since announcing our new association with Gilera Motors Argentina in October. We have already inaugurated a flagship store and are focussed on scaling up sales and service across the country. With our soon-to-be-launched range of globally acclaimed products, we are confident of exciting the market and appealing to the customers.”
Omar Caruso, Vice President of Gilera Motors Argentina, said, “Customers will also benefit from the latest technologies of Hero MotoCorp products such as the Xpulse 200 and Hunk 160R.”
