Hero MotoCorp recently unveiled its future line-up and showcased it at the 2012 Auto Expo. The three bikes, which will hit Indian roads this year are the Ignitor, Maestro and Passion X Pro. The company has been focusing its attention on setting up an R&D center as the exit of Honda from the company has left Hero technology-less. Case in point are the bikes which the company claims to be next generation, which are nothing but machines which Honda has been selling in the Indian market for quite some time now. The Ignitor is the CB Stunner, while the Maestro is the Activa with a new name.

Indian consumers are not ignorant that they won’t be able to make out between a Stunner and Ignitor. Long time ago, when we were testing the Hyosung ST7, many people thought it was a Harley-Davidson, even though both bikes don’t share any common parts. When the Stunner and Ignitor are essentially the same motorcycles, most won’t even think the bike is a Hero and instead pass it off as a Stunner (the enthusiasts among us are too smart though). Honda has given Hero the bikes they wanted and launched new motorcycles which are actually new models with the latest technology. Hero knows that after 2014, they won’t have Honda to rely on and are scouting for design and technology partners across the globe. Hero had its complete range on display at the 2012 Auto Expo and also showcased a Hunk painted in Matte Black colour.

    it is better to buy hunk(2013 model) or pulsar …did hunk still depends on honda engine which is 2014 deadline..
    or hunk develops engine by own using global italy & Usa patners….Did 2013 model did have vibrations above 60 kmph
