Back in 2020, Hero MotoCorp had launched the Hero Connect to offer its customers new-age solutions, allowing them to stay technologically advanced while riding their bikes or scooters. Priced at Rs 4,999, the Hero Connect was offered for four bikes – XPulse 200, Pleasure+, Passion XPRO and HF Deluxe – at its initial launch.
What is Hero Connect and how does it work?
Hero Connect is a cloud-based solution aimed at giving customers a smarter riding experience.
HeroConnect uses telematics hardware with a built-in SIM that is securely installed on the bike.
The cellular network is used for communication between the app on the rider’s phone and the device. The data uses cloud storage and is transmitted to the mobile phone.
