You still wondering about the launch news of HX250R ?!. If so the wait is almost over guys Hero will be debuting its new model HX250R soon which was already previewed in 2014 Auto Expo. It was a long wait for the launch of this bike after it was unveiled in Auto Expo. However this bike is going to be here just in few months. Yet we still don’t know how the production model of this bike would look because the design of most of the fully faired bikes from Hero is just awkward, especially when it comes to the front design Hero always lose it. The most recent design of Karizma ZMR was funkiest and worst one ever, they had lost large number of their followers after that one.
It was heard like the new HX250R would be replacing the Karizma ZMR and it will be the one which will be competing in 250 category with Honda CBR 250R, Kawasaki Ninja 300, KTM RC 200, Bajaj Pulsar RS200 etc. The engine displacement of this bike is 249 cc, single-cylinder liquid-cooled with DMFi which will produce a peak power of 31 BHP @ 9000 rpm and peak torque of 23 NM @ 7000 rpm. It has got Constant Mesh 6-speed gearbox and the top speed of this bike is expected to be 160kmph. The expected fuel efficiency of this bike is around 30kmpl in the city run and 40kmpl in the highway roads.
The front brake of HX250R will be 300 mm Disc, three piston caliper and rear one will be 220 mm Disc, linked. the front suspension is Telescopic Hydraulic Shock Absorbers and rear one is Single shock, 5 Step adjustable Pre Load, Shim Valve Damping. The overall length of this bike is 2085 mm and overall width is 735 mm and overall height is 1145 mm. The ground clearance of HX250R is 145 mm and this bike weighs 139 kg. The fuel tank capacity of this bike is 12.90 litres. Overall HX250R will be a perfect competitor in 250cc segment but still first appearance matters. If Hero works out more to improve the appearance then they can be a winner and get more commuters easily.
