Hero MotoCorp has launched a first-of-its-kind pan-India talent-hunt program under the name Hero Dirt Biking Challenge (HDBC). As a part of this, Hero MotoCorp aims to provide the ideal platform to the country’s youth. This will also act as a breeding ground for budding riders and enthusiasts who want to pursue their passion for off-roading. As evident from the name, HDBC will reach as many as 45 cities to find India’s top amateur off-road riders. Hero MotoCorp will reward the winner and two runners-up with Hero Xpulse 200 4V motorcycle and sponsorship contracts from Hero MotoCorp worth Rs. 20 lakh. To attract maximum engagement, Hero MotoCorp will telecast the HDBC over MTV and stream over Voot in the month of November 2022.
