Hero MotoCorp has announced that it will launch three new models in India on December 21, 2017. The company hasn’t yet revealed the product names and details. Though, there is a high probability of Hero Super Splendor iSmart 125 and Hero Passion Pro’s 2018 models. The third product could either be the Xtreme 200S or a new 125cc scooter.
For people not in the know, it was only recently the home-grown two-wheeler manufacturer told media that the HX250R’s launch plan has been shelved. Read – Hero Xtreme 200S Vs Bajaj Pulsar NS200
