Hero Honda Motors Limited is the World's single largest two-wheeler motorcycle company
Hero Honda Motors Ltd. came into existence
in 1984 as a joint venture between Hero Cycles and
Honda Motor Company of Japan. Since then, over a span
of two decades, Hero Honda Motors Limited has metamorphosed
into the world's largest motorcycle company.
Since its inception, Hero Honda has sold over 15 million motorcycles and has maintained a phenomenal growth rate over the years. The company carved a niche in the competitive Indian market for churning out motorcycles with high fuel efficiency and low maintenance.
What helped this JV achieve such great success is the optimal combination of Hero Group's deep domain knowledge of the Indian market and its supplier network with Honda's expertise over four-stroke engine technology to produce efficient bikes. The venerable Splendor motorcycle from the Hero Honda stable went on to become a cult machine for its low-maintenance costs and fuel efficiency.
In line with its ambitious expansion plans, Hero Honda has built two world-class manufacturing facilities at Dharuhera and Gurgaon in Haryana that now churn out over 3 million bikes per year.
