Hero MotoCorp and Al Futtaim partner up to sell motorcycles in UAE & GCC

Hero-Karizma-600x450 Hero MotoCorp and Al Futtaim partner up to sell motorcycles in UAE & GCC

Indian motorcylcle company Hero MotoCorp Ltd (HMCL), the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, has appointed Al-Futtaim as its distributor for the GCC region.

Al-Futtaim and Hero MotoCorp jointly inaugurated the first Hero showroom in the UAE recently, located at the Airport Road in Deira, Dubai. The Service Center is located in Rashidiya.

The association aims to capture a sizeable market share in the GCC region – comprising of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE – a rapidly growing two-wheeler market.

For the past 15 consecutive years, the New Delhi (India)-headquartered Hero MotoCorp has remained the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer in terms of unit volumes sold by a single company in a calendar year.

The company sold over 6.63 million two-wheelers in the last financial year. Since its inception in 1984, Hero has sold over 70 million motorcycles and scooters in cumulative sales.

Hero MotoCorp started off as a joint venture with Honda Japan, building bikes under the Hero Honda brand name. In 2010, when Honda Japan ended their partnership, Hero Group bought off their stake in the company.

    Delivery and courier guys may be a bit disappointed if companies now go for cheaper 100-150cc motorbikes as against previously being given 200-250cc motorbikes

      Oh ya.. then you can pay the additional amount and buy the delivery guys 250 CC bikes. Its easy to comment. Efficiency is paramount these days, doesn’t matter who the manufacturer is, besides speed limits are only being decreased everywhere, so atleast we can have some fuel efficient Suzuki’s and Honda’s.

    We got our delivery crew 4 honda cbx 250 twister a few years ago.They loved it and it was good as a daily commuter bike as well.
    I understand your point of fuel efficiency, but why would decreasing speed limits in cities be a hindrance to purchasing something with more power? Overspeeding is possible in any vehicle or bike, it depends on the rational of the driver behind the wheel.

      In my opinion, it looks like a wannabe – with the body of a sports bike but an engine and tire of a typical motorcycle
