Good job by Hero MotoCorp. Hero understands that this segment is a volume game and has planned production and deliveries to meet demand. It is also good to see manufactureres offering better engines, and more features on commuter motorcycles. The new paint schemes are fashionable and we expect that to make the motorcycle a crowd favourite as well.
