Hero MotoCorp unveils two new 100 cc bikes

Country's largest two-wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp today unveiled two new 100cc bikes -- Splendor Pro Classic and Passion TR -- which will hit the Indian markets in next two months.

Besides, the company also showcased a 620 cc super premium motorbike 'Hastur' and two concept bikes 'SimplEcity' and 'iON'.

"The two bikes (Splendor and Passion) are ready to be launched commercially. Hastur, which will mark our foray into the superbike segment, needs more research before launch," Hero MotoCorp Managing Director and CEO Pawan Munjal told reporters here.

Talking about the concept bikes, Munjal said, "They are destined for the future."

He added that the market has been slow but the company has done well and posted growth.

"By the second half of this calender year, growth should be back," Munjal said.

Last week, the company had unveiled a 150 cc diesel concept scooter and four other models, including a hybrid scooter.

Barring the 150 cc diesel model RNT, the company plans to launch all other four models in the next fiscal.
