Have gone through all the posts and i can see people trashing hero. Yes the hero(hero honda) brand is known to get all trashing. It's a known fact.
but people has to understand that hero has just broken part from honda. a baby is trying to get up and walk. do people expect the baby to get up and run? people going mad at new karizma r/zmr. are there no horribly stickered/desinged vechicles in the indian market in the past?
the karizma twins are the preffered bikes by tourers next to royal enfields. there is no bike in 200 cc segment which gives a mileage like the zmr. the karizma r is a vfm
bike.. I see rtr 180 is being compared to zmr. ride both at highways at a speeds of above 100 and you will know which bike is the best. is all the bikes lauched by tvs are rocking the sales chart?
bajaj till date has the highest number of discontinued bikes. even after all the emergenice of many bikes, karizma twins manages to sell as much as number as compared to pulsar 200ns and r15, p220.
hero losing ground to honda? the cbr150r is a big failure and it's hardly making sales. they are making numbers only out of the honda activa.
after all this trashes, the so called stickering company rules the market in sales and it will continue to the leader.
i'm not against bajaj, i have a p220 and rtr 160, electra, karizma, cbz xteme with me. i really admire bajaj for their innovations and tvs apache as a good handler.
when our desi manufacturer is trying to come up, even if people doesn't wanna support atleast not to trash the company.
the perception that people have about hero and tata are the same. these too are the punch bags of the automotive industry. i have products both from tata and hero and they are rock soild and reliable
