Hero South Africa Diwali Celebration

In case you didn’t know, the Indian Diwali celebration is comparable to our Christmas celebrations, but on a much larger scale. Spreading over five days, it recognises the triumph of light over dark, bringing in the new year.

Day 1 of the celebration was historically a day of purchasing gold and silver, to gift to family and loved ones. As times have changed, gold and silver coins have been replaced with gifting items that represent good fortune, togetherness and prosperity.

Motorcycles have become a popular Diwali gift and, with Hero being one of India’s largest motorcycle manufacturers, it is natural that a Hero motorcycle has become a popular gift. So much so that Hero expects to sell at least 500,000 motorcycles a day over the five days! People have been standing in long queues since June to make sure they got their order in.

Hero South Africa and its dealers countrywide will be a part of the global celebration, offering a Diwali gift parcel to customers who purchase a Hero over the five days of Diwali. The gift box includes a Ganesh coin, candles, scented oils and a Ganesh statue. Each client’s parcel will be sent directly to their house with a courier and a note of thanks from Hero.

Harry has been obsessing about motorbikes for over 45 years, riding them for 38 years and writing and talking about them for 13 years. In that time, he has ridden everything from an Aprilia to a Zundapp, from the 1920s to the 2020s. His favourites are the ones that didn’t break down and leave him stranded. While he loves the convenience of modern bikes, he likes nothing better than getting his hands dirty keeping old bikes running, just as long as it’s not by the roadside! Old enough to know better and young enough not to care, he knows you don’t stop riding when you get old, you get old when you stop riding.
