Hero MotoCorp, the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, made a significant impact at the EICMA 2023 by showcasing a lineup of new electric and ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicles, along with a vision to enter the European market by mid-2024.

Niranjan Gupta, CEO of Hero MotoCorp, revealed their ambitious plans to enter the UK, Spain, and France markets in 2024, starting with the introduction of their electric scooter, VIDA V1. Hero MotoCorp's reputation for offering high-quality personal mobility solutions at accessible prices positions them well for success in these new geographies.

By mid-2024, the company will introduce its electric scooters and later expand its range of premium ICE motorcycles and scooters in these countries.
