Hero HX250R – Future in Europe
India’s Hero MotoCorp has taken a big step forward for the dissemination of a 250cc sport in the European market by removing the name HX250R.
This 250cc Hero was designed in collaboration with Erik Buell Racing and should begin airing in India next year before arriving in our country.
The engine 31cv and 25.9Nm or a values higher than the Honda CBR300R hair, but less than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 with 39cv and 27Nm. The block will have a role holder will be contained in a tubular steel frame and a curb weight of just 139kg is announced.
The small sports are definitely in vogue on a motorcycle market that fits an application which, itself, has its sub. But that does not mean depriving themselves of the pleasure of riding machines character. KTM sniff the trend that also flows into emerging market with a strong Indian partner Bajaj. But in India, there is also the brand Hero who chose a different path while also nurturing a fine ambition.
It will be recalled, that eventually wants to become as big Hero Honda. Schooled in Tokyo, the student wants to go beyond the master and for that, we must also make themselves known in northern latitudes. The company has adopted Erik Buell and trigram EBR, and Europe, the importer was established in the Netherlands.
Now what? There certainly is expensive sport that tries to look good in the Superbike championship. But the main weapon looks like being a quarter liter model called HX250R. What will invite debate Ninja 300 and other CBR300R. 31 hp, tubular frame, and a curb weight of only 139 pounds. As you can imagine a competitive price, we think it is not to be taken lightly. So when? It will be recalled that in the overall Indian landscape there is also Mahindra who just pay the Peugeot scooters.
