Hero MotoCorp Discontinues Seven Motorcycles

Discontinued Hero Motorcycles Hunk Passion Karizma

The Karizma R, Karizma ZMR, Hunk, Glamour, Ignitor, Passion X Pro and the Passion Pro TR have been taken off of buyers’ list.

Hero MotoCorp have silently discontinued more than half a dozen motorcycles from their line up in the rise of the BS-IV emission norms. As per our sources, the major reason for the discontinuing these motorcycles was the low sales volumes.

Hero is currently developing new models of these currently sidelined motorcycles which will be launched in the near future. The Karizma was the flagship motorcycle of Hero MotoCorp since a very long time but the bike has now been put on the sidelines for a few updates.

Hunk

The Hunk was a good all-round motorcycle but was not updated for a long time which led to the eventual decline in its sales volumes. The launch of more modern and frugal motorcycles in the 150cc segment was also one of the reasons for its downfall. The Glamour and the Ignitor were both 125cc motorcycles. Since the company now has the fuel-injected Glamour on offer, the older model was silently taken off. The Ignitor, since it was launched, didn’t make a big stir in the 125cc segment and hence followed suit.

The Passion was one of the best-selling motorcycles from Hero in the commuter segment and the company might have discontinued its models for future updates. For those who want to buy the Passion, Hero is still selling the Passion Pro i3S. With the launch of i-Smart technology in Splendor, Passion and then recently in the Achiever (bigger capacity commuter), Hero is keen on providing more kilometers per litre for customers looking for the same.

The company is currently selling the Xtreme Sports and the Achiever in the 150cc segment, Glamour SV, Glamour Fi in the 125cc segment, Super Splendor, Splendor iSmart 110, Passion Pro i3S, Splendor Pro, Splendor Plus, HF Deluxe Eco and HF Deluxe in the commuter segment. We really wish Hero brings the Karizma back on sale soon with new updates. The Karizma R has also been one of the longest-selling entry level performance motorcycle in our country. It was also among the very few motorcycles which received only minor updates and still kept the desirability going for itself. We wish to see more such products from Hero in future.
