Mr. Pawan Munjal, Managing Director and CEO, Hero Motocorp, said –

The commencement of our operations in Turkey is a significant milestone in our overall global expansion plans. We are aware that Turkey has a strong bikes market where customers value quality products, and our vision is to provide convenient, fuel-efficient mobility to every two-wheeler customer across Turkey. It also gives me immense pleasure to announce the choice of Soysal Group as our partner in this market. I am sure with their rich experience in this region and knowledge of the local customer, we will be able to achieve our immediate short-term goal of 5% market share in Turkey. Going forward, we will also be bringing more bikes from our wide-ranging portfolio.
