The Hero Glamour motorcycles have been specially equipped with hooters, flashlights, leg guards, helmet locks and waterproof side bags. The company says these motorcycles will enable the forest guards and rangers to conduct effective active patrols in the forest, thereby increasing their mobility to keep a check on poaching and illegal deforestation, forest fires, and protection of trees/forest and wild animals.

Speaking about the initiative, Subodh Uniyal, Minister of Forests, Language & Technical Education, Government of Uttarakhand, said, “We are grateful to Hero MotoCorp for spearheading this project and partnering with the Uttarakhand Forest Department. This is an outstanding demonstration of a corporate collaborating with local forest authority to ensure global ecological and sustainable development, and I hope that more corporates will take inspiration from this partnership and come forward to collaborate with us.”
