If market research group Freedonia Group is right, the move makes a lot of sense. The firm projects that Indian customers will buy 21.1 million motorcycles in 2016. Come the summer of 2015, Hero will start selling four of its models to the U.S. and EBR will be the sole distributor of those machines. With domestic manufacturers offering more economical, low to mid displacement motorcycles now, the time may be right for Hero's move. The imports consist of a lightweight sport bike, a scooter, and gas-sipping commuter machines.
