Hero MotoCorp - 10 bikes removed from Indian website


Hero MotoCorp has removed a total of 10 bikes from its Indian website, sparking rumours regarding the discontinuation of the said models. This line-up trimming has likely been done after taking into account the depleting sales figures of the said models.

The Hero Karizma R has been dropped from the portfolio, while its fully-faired sibling - the Karizma ZMR is still on sale. The Hunk and Xtreme have also been removed from the website, while the relatively newer Xtreme Sports continues to be on sale. Other bikes shed from Hero's website include the HF Dawn, Splendor iSmart (100 cc), Splendor NXG, Splendor Pro Classic, Passion Plus, Passion xPro and Ignitor.

Meanwhile, the company's scooter portfolio, which includes the Maestro Edge, Duet and Pleasure, has been left unchanged. Hero MotoCorp is yet to officially announce whether all the de-listed models have been discontinued, or the company will re-launch them with some updates, including BS-IV compliant engines.
