Hero MotoCorp

  • World's largest manufacturer of two-wheelers
  • One of the largest Indian automobile exporters
  • Possesses four world-class manufacturing facilities

Hero MotoCorp Ltd is the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles. The company is owned by the Munjal brothers and was started in 1984 as a joint venture (JV) between Hero Cycles Ltd and Honda Motor Company. It was then known as Hero Honda Motors Ltd, but since 2010 following its separation with the Honda Group, the company is known as Hero MotoCorp Ltd.

The two-wheelers are manufactured across four globally benchmarked manufacturing facilities. Two of these are based at Gurgaon and Dharuhera which are located in the state of Haryana in northern India. The third manufacturing plant is based at Haridwar, in the hill state of Uttarakhand. The fourth and the latest one is at Hero Garden Factory in Neemrana, Rajasthan.

The company's growth in the two-wheelers market in India is the result of an intrinsic ability to increase reach in new geographies and growth markets. Hero MotoCorp's extensive sales and service network now spans over 6,000 customer touch points. These comprise a mix of authorised dealerships, service and spare parts outlets, and dealer-appointed outlets across the country.
