Hero HX250R India launch before Yamaha R25?
Hero MotoCorp has already revealed that they have plans for new launches this year. Whatever these new launches were, we were not expecting HX250R to be a part of it. But if we are to believe Zigwheels, that is exactly what Hero is going to launch in November this year. This means that the HX250R will be launched before Yamaha R25, launch of which is delayed to 2015.
Features on offer include front and rear disc brakes, twin halogen bulbs in the front, LED tail-light, lightweight at 139 kgs, ground clearance of 145 mm, fuel tank capacity of 12.9 liters, multi-sensor electronic fuel injection system, geodesic tubular frame, front and rear ABS (optional), 17 inch tubeless tyres (110/80 front ant 140/70 rear), under-seat exhaust and digital speedometer.
Said to be developed with inputs from Erik Buell Racing, new Hero HX250R will compete with the likes of Ninja 250, Honda CBR250R, KTM Duke 200/390, and yet to be launched Yamaha R25 and Honda CBR300R. Thanks to heavy localization, price of Hero HX250R is expected to be in the Rs 1.5 lakhs range. More information will be revealed once the bike is launched in November 2014.
