Hero Group has applied for a name change from Hero Honda to Hero Moto, as per information from the sources, said a television channel today.
The brands under the group waill remain unchanged.
The Hero group in December, 2010 had split from its 20-year old joint venture partner Honda group with the Munjals now owning Honda's 26% stake in the already split joint venture.
The name change process is likely to consume an expected period of about two months, according to the television channel sources.
Further details are yet to be disclosed.
