"Dr. Brijmohan Lall Munjal, my father and Founder Chairman of Hero MotoCorp, inspired billions worldwide. His vision transformed the landscape of the Indian automotive industry, and the Indian industry, leaving behind a legacy of ingenuity, innovation, courage and integrity. For him, business transcended profit - it was about people, both the individual and the community.

"As we celebrate the completion of one year of his centennial anniversary, I am overwhelmed and proud to introduce ‘The Centennial’ - a marvel of engineering crafted in honour of his legacy. ‘The Centennial’ is not merely a landmark motorcycle but a memoir, written in steel and carbon fibre. This magnificent machine's design, engineering and technology all reflect the indelible mark of our inspiring Founder.

"His inclusive vision embraced everyone in the Hero community – our customers, employees, dealers, partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders. Over these 100 days, we celebrate the man who started it all. I invite everyone to join us in honouring Dr. Brijmohan Lall Munjal on his 101st birth anniversary."

The Centennial

‘The Centennial’ stands out with its exceptional craftsmanship, carbon fibre and milled aluminium usage, and meticulous engineering.

Its distinctive elements include a lightweight aluminium swingarm for an enhanced riding experience and newly designed carbon fibre body panels for sleek aesthetics and structural rigidity. ‘The Centennial’ features are specially developed, machined, and anodised, including handlebars, handlebar mounts, triple clamps, and rear-set foot pegs.

Delivering impressive performance and agility, the bike is equipped with a gas-charged, fully adjustable mono-shock from Wilbers and a 43-mm upside-down front suspension with damping adjustment.

A distinct, deep exhaust note emanates from the top-of-the-line carbon fibre and titanium exhaust system by Akrapovic, which is specially tuned for peak performance and integrates seamlessly with the bike.

The solo seat with a carbon fibre seat cowl and milled aluminium special edition numbered badging on the side covers add to the bike's uniqueness and exclusivity. Attention to detail is evident in the diamond-cut alloy wheels and the engine and frame's paint scheme, which enhance the motorcycle's visual appeal.

With a low kerb weight of 158 kg, ‘The Centennial’ is exceptionally light, offering superior throttle response and improved handling and braking performance.
