The HX250 was developed in association with technical partner EBR.

The quarter-litre sportsbike has been developed by Hero Motocorp in association with its technical partner EBR (Erik Buell Racing). Inputs for powertrain developments came from AVL Austria and Engines Engineering.

Powered by a 249 cc single cylinder fuel injected engine, the HX250 will be the most powerful motorcycle to go on sale in the company’s history. The oil cooled motor develops 31 bhp and 26 Nm of torque and comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox which is a first for Hero Motocorp. Though the bike has an imposing stance, it tips the scales at 139 kg which should make for a sprightly performance.

The HX250 can accelerate from 0-60 km/h in just 2.7 seconds.

The bike is held together by a geodesic tubular frame and the design highlights include twin headlamps, a full fairing, split seats, aluminium foot rest mounts and an underseat exhaust. The front and rear disc brakes are connected by a combined braking system which is also available with optional ABS.

    It will be unfortunate if they price this bike above 1.25L ($2000.0), as most of bike enthusiasts in the twenty plus category will not be able to afford one. This will also results in low sales volume. Hero needs large volume in this category to push the Japanese out of this segment. As the Japanese are largely assemblers in the 250 cc and above category, and bringing the price point below 1.5L will significantly reduce their margins in the category that they plan to make big money on. For the average 100 to 150 cc bike consumer this will be a realistic aspirational product, and push the Hero brand identity to the next level.
