Automaker company Hero MotoCorp has reached a monumental 100 million production milestone since the company started operations in 1984. The 100 millionth bike to roll out of Hero's production facility was an Xtreme 160R which came out of Hero's Haridwar-based facility.
The company on Thursday announced that it has achieved this milestone. Previously, the 50 million production milestone was achieved back in 2013. The automaker took nearly seven years to reach the next milestone. The company termed the new landmark as 'one of the fastest global achievements of the 100 million cumulative production mark, with the last 50 million units coming in a span of just seven years'.
To celebrate this big achievement, the company has also introduced six new celebratory models including Splendor+, Xtreme 160R, Passion Pro, Glamour (motorcycles) and Destini 125, Maestro Edge 110 (scooters). These new bikes and scooters will go on sale in India from February 2021. Prices and other closer details on the new models will be announced in the later stage.
