Not that everyone didn't see this coming, but Honda has now officially decided to part ways with Hero Motors, ending their joint venture in 2-wheelers.

Honda will sell its 26% stake to Hero Motors. Both parties have decided to sign MOUs for a new relationship. Honda currently owns 26% of Hero Honda’s outstanding shares, which it will sell after the signing of the MOUs.

Now that Honda's out of this wedlock, Hero Honda will naturally be looking at re-branding options. Do you think they should condense it to simply Hero or look at another option all together?
