Hero Group, owner of India’s largest motorcycle manufacturer Hero MotoCorp, has won a contract to manufacture gears for Ducati’s motorcycles. The transmission division of Hero Motors will manufacture these gears in their Indian plant.
Ducati is not the first premium motorcycle manufacture to outsource the manufacturing of its transmissions to Hero; the Indian two-wheeler company has been manufacturing gears for BMW as well as Harley-Davidson.
Speaking on this latest development, Pankaj Munjal, CMD, Hero Group said, “This definitely is a big leap for us and we are quite excited about this new development. With this win we are not only forging a strong relationship with a global two-wheeler leader but also reaffirming Hero’s proficiency and expertise in specialised manufacturing. We look forward to a long-term association with our patrons.”
