Hero MotoCorp Ltd. has announced the new five years warranty on all two-wheelers sold in India. Specifically the warranty is 5 years or 70000km (43500 mi) on bikes and 5 years or 50000 km (31000 mi) concerning scooters. 

Hero is India˘s two-wheeler largest bike manufacturer. Providing an extended warranty doesn˘t always mean that bikes are always better, although it is indicative of the company˘s confidence for its products. Hopefully more manufacturers will follow, in India and other countries.
