Hero MotoCorp unveiled the Leap Concept at the 2012 Auto Expo. The Hero Leap is a hybrid scooter which runs on petrol and battery. It has been developed by Hero in house at its R&D center in Gurgaon. The Leap is equipped with multi-functional features and could go into production as soon as next year. Hero has also applied for three international technology patents and nine international design registrations for the Leap Concept scooter. The Nissan Leaf is an eco-friendly vehicle just like the Leap and the Leap-Leaf names just makes us wonder how innovative Hero really is!

“As its name signifies, the ‘Leap’ is indeed a leap in terms of advanced technology not just for us but also for the Indian two-wheeler industry in general. For us, it is indeed a ‘Leap’ into future in terms of our ability to bring technologically-superior products in keeping with international standards. Although this is currently at a concept stage, we intend to take it forward to be able to produce it commercially in the near future,” Mr. Pawan Munjal, Managing Director and CEO, Hero MotoCorp, said.
