With an aim to encourage voters to cast their votes, Hero MotoCorp has launched a unique nationwide customer benefit initiative. The scheme would encourage its 85 million customers in the country to vote during the 2019 General Elections. The Company has rolled-out a vehicle maintenance scheme for customers who exercise their Right to Vote.
Customers can visit Hero MotoCorp dealerships and workshops with the voter’s ink mark on their finger to avail a free two-wheeler wash and get their vehicles serviced at just INR 199. The scheme will be available up to two days after the polling day in every city. Customers can also pre-book the vehicle-servicing package.
The voting for the 2019 General Elections are being held in seven phases from 11-19 April 2019, while the final counting would be held on May 23. Check out the voting dates below:
|Phase I - 91 Lok Sabha or parliamentary constituencies in 20 states||11 April|
|Phase II - 97 Lok Sabha or parliamentary constituencies in 13 states||18 April|
|Phase III - 115 Lok Sabha or parliamentary constituencies in 14 states||23 April|
|Phase IV - 71 Lok Sabha or parliamentary constituencies in 9 states||29 April|
|Phase V - 51 Lok Sabha or parliamentary constituencies in 7 states||6 May|
|Phase VI - 59 Lok Sabha or parliamentary constituencies in 7 states||12 May|
|Phase VII - 59 Lok Sabha or parliamentary constituencies in 8 states||19 May|
As for the product updates, Hero MotoCorp would soon introduce a fully-faired 200 cc motorcycle, which was recently spied in production-ready guise. Details are scarce, but a possibility is that it will arrive as a Karizma model. It will most likely be built on the Xtreme 200R's platform and share the engine with the same model. So, expect to see a 199.6 cc single-cylinder, 2-valve, SOHC, air-cooled motor producing 18.4 PS of maximum power and 17.1 Nm of peak torque. We expect the model to debut with a carburettor engine, with a switch to fuel-injection version happening with the BS-VI upgrade.
