There is a news doing the rounds about the Hero Honda’s intention of launching a new dirt bike of 180cc during the festive season.  This is apparently going to be a complete import and will be priced at around 1.5 lakhs, a price point that is difficult to believe given the import duties on CBUs and CKD assemblies.  It is also being said that the news emanating from the Registrar of Companies’ office is that Hero Honda has applied for a name change to Hero MotoCorp and that the new dirt bike will be the first offering under the new brand.  Further rumours suggest that the dirt bike launch will be followed by the launch of a 100cc and a 125cc motorcycles as well.
