While setting shop in Argentina was comparatively easy, Brazil is different ball game as the country favours ethanol blended petrol. Hero had previously attempted to enter the Brazilian market around the Rio Olympic Games (2016) but could not execute the move. Hero MotoCorp at present has a presence in 35 nations and aims to reach a total of 50 by 2020.
