Hero Majestic mopeds began in India in 1978. Within a few years, Hero Majestic was a household name in the country, and by 1983, Majestic Auto Limited was the country's leading manufacturer of mopeds. Hero Majestic Mopeds have found great acceptance in the overseas markets, including countries in Africa, North & South America, Europe and the far & middle East and are homologated in Europe & USA.


The hero majestic range includes: Panther, Student, Hero, Stallion, Gizmo and Ankur. Other brands such as Yumbo are also basically the same thing.
