Having already stamped our presence in Asia, Africa, and Latin and Central America, we are now looking at stepping into the European market by the end of 2015 with our hybrid scooter Leap making its debut here. While we are looking for potential partners, we are also open to M&A opportunities to be able to make quick inroads in these markets. This is in line with our vision of making Hero a truly global brand in its range of quality products, scale of operations and geographical footprint.”
