Just recently we had posted about Honda wooing the dealers to Hero Honda to join them. But now we hear of a development, wherein Hero Honda has enticed close to 150 engineers from its rival 2-wheeler manufacturers. The company is planning to setup a competent R&D center and has hired engineers from Bajaj, Mahindra and Yamaha. These engineers have been recruited under various verticals including engine design, vehicle styling and technology. Now we can expect future Hero Honda vehicles to have the best ideas from the Indian 2-wheeler industry.

“We are fast enhancing our own R&D capabilities in terms of both manpower and logistics,” Pawan Munjal, MD, Hero Honda said.
