Default Has the Hero Honda website been hacked?

Friends
I needed to research Hero Honda's gearless scooters for my niece and tried to log on to their website through Google but Google is warning me not to enter the website as it might harm my computer. They call it a Malware warning.
This is the page that is opening when I click on the Hero Honda link.

clicMalware Warning

Could anyone please confirm this?
Regards
Sudipto

Hi,

Yup you're right. Try in a couple of hours, it should get fixed.

Probably a false-positive on Google's part. They had once blacklisted GMail by mistake if I recall correctly.

Google does this every now and then with different websites I guess. Once they had blacklisted autocarindia.com

Yes.Autocar India.com is blacklisted. It shows Malware warning when we open that site. So I'm thesedays avoiding it.

Not just google.
I tried accessing from Firefox 3.5 and got this:
