The Parade covered more than 14 suburban towns close to Colombo. Hero Honda is a joint venture between India’s Hero Group and Honda Motor Company - Japan, with Stafford motors being the sole authorised distributor for Hero Honda Motorcycles in Sri Lanka.
Having the highest sales volume in the world for a single brand, Hero Honda has the prestigious position of being known as the World’s Number one, Two Wheeler company in terms of unit volume sales in a calendar year by a single company and has retained this coveted position to date.
Hero Honda’s product range includes a variety of motorcycles that have set the industry standards across all the market segments.
