Some automotive websites are speculating that by the middle of 2012 Hero MotoCorp will launch a 250cc motorcycle in collaboration with Honda.  It is well known that Hero can purchase technology from Honda until 2014 by paying royalties.  However, Honda is unlikely to technology of products that could compete with its own offerings.  Therefore, if this news is true, it remains to be seen in what form this 250cc motorcycle will emerge from the Hero stables.  The speculation mainly is that it will be a cruiser.  Right now it is all in the air.
