Launched globally in 2014. Hero HX250R is not yet available in India.
Hero HX250R is one among the production based concept model, which was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo. It is one of the most anticipated motorbikes from the Indian brand in recent times. This motorcycle has been styled brilliantly by Hero MotoCorp with the assistance of Erik Buell Racing (EBR). This concept model stands apart from other bikes that we had seen. Visually, the HX250R offers a commanding and aggressive road presence. It comes in dual tone colour scheme with sharp body panels and stylish decals. The twin headlamp with large windscreen adds the sporty nature of the bike. It features a large fuel tank which gels very well with the split seats. The tail part is sleek and pointed with split grab rails and LED tail light.
Powering up the HX is a brand new 249cc, single cylinder, liquid-cooled engine capable enough to deliver 30 bhp power and 26 Nm of torque. It is going to be the first Hero bike to feature 6-speed manual gearbox. Therefore, it is expected to become the fastest motorcycle, that Hero has ever produced.
The Honda CBR 250R, KTM RC 200, Bajaj RS 200 and the upcoming Suzuki Gixxer 250 will the competitors for HX250R.
