Just a day after the start of the Auto Expo 2012 in Delhi, Hero MotorCorp has unveiled its Leap hybrid scooter concept to the general public. Since it is a hybrid concept, the Leap hybrid scooter is powered by a conventional petrol engine as well as battery powered motors.
The company is not currently planning any production for this Leap concept scooter in the immediate future. They are, instead, engaged in studying the commercial viability of the same. The company is guarding this technology very carefully and that is why, they have already applied for international patent for the technology as well as the design of the Leap. The company seems to have made quite a big investment in this project and is now planning similar projects in the future.
Just a day before the launch of Leap, Hero launched its Maestro Scooter, Passion Pro X and Ignator motorcycle in the Indian market.
