Sources say that Hero Honda will now become Hero Moto. Sources tell that the company has applied to the Registrar of Companies for a name change.

As far as the implementation of this new name is concerned, sources share that it would take about two months time because they would need shareholders approval for the same. Sources also tell us that as far as the products are concerned, the brands are not going to see any name change. So, a Hero Honda Passion or a Hero Honda Pleasure or Splendor will become Hero Moto Passion or a Hero Moto Splendor.
