Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh, India – With 90 days of planning and 300 hours of dedication, MotoCorp Heroes, the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer set the world record for ‘The biggest motorcycle logo‘, using 1,845 motorcycles, according to the WORLD RECORD ACADEMY.
The motorcycles were assembled in an empty field measuring 1,000 feet x 800 feet. This field was in the company’s manufacturing plant in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh, but they had to level the area in order to have a flat canvas to work with.
The 10th anniversary celebrations also coincide with the company having hit the 100 million sales mark since its inception.
Hero Splendor Plus is one of the most affordable motorcycles in the country today with a starting price of Rs 63,000 (ex-showroom). It is powered by a 97.2 cc single-cylinder injection engine which develops a power of 7.91 hp and a torque of 8.05 Nm. This device is associated with a 4-speed gearbox.
Hero had already launched a 100 million special edition for the Xtreme 160R motorcycle to mark this milestone. Hero’s 100 Million Editions products do not feature any mechanical changes, but come packaged in a special livery and charge a little extra compared to the regular models.
Commenting on the occasion,
Malo Le Masson, responsible for overall product planning and strategy,
MotoCorp Heroes said: “Earlier this year, Hero MotoCorp celebrated the milestone of 100 million cumulative sales since its inception, a record in the hearts of all Heroes. This milestone comes in 2021 which is also the 10th anniversary year of the Hero Brand logo, unveiled on August 9, 2011 at the O2 Arena in London.
“So as part of our unique celebrations for the special day, we achieved a world record for the ‘The biggest motorcycle logo‘to demonstrate the stature of our brand. This is another world record set by the Hero brand, and we won’t stop there. Stay tuned for more on Hero MotoCorp. “
But the company does not intend to stop there, it wants to follow this record with another and also help the environment in the process. They ask customers to participate in the Route verte and plant trees. While this is a great eco-friendly initiative, it will also help Hero Motocorp try to get the title for ‘The largest online photo album of people planting plants‘.
