The bike boasts of a 300mm, triple piston caliper disc brake at front and a 220mm linked disc unit at the rear. ABS is optional. The bike sports an underseat exhaust.

Quite obviously, the new Hero HX250R is looking poised to become the next big thing from Hero MotoCorp and might very well become the perfect spiritual successor to the original Karizma. What do you say?

  1. From the bore and stroke, this bike should be a 1000 cc bike.
    π x 81² x 48.5 = = 9,99,681.49 mm³ = 999.68 cc
    I think the figure is a mistake.

  2. My neighbor owns a Buell 1125R (limited edition). I can strongly say that the Hero HX 250R has had a lot of inspiration from the same. It is evident and is not a bad thing. The 1125R is monstrous in flesh!

  3. Can anybody update on this one please??

    Any news about Impulse or have they ceased the production of this bike.

    Are we expecting a 250CC motor??

    Please update????

  4. What I found through Auto Expo 2014 is everybody in the industry is trying to use Indian talent for their product development and are succeeded to deliver impressively…We see Yamaha, HMSI, Bajaj, HarleyDevidson, TVS, Maruti Suzuki, GM, Mercedes, Chrysler…..We find Bajaj CS400, GM Adra, Honda CX 01, Celerio, Ertiga….Grand Cheerookee to name few. Hero on the other hand desperately trying to get some good stuff….but nothing impressed me for success or launch able. Most of them or sized down versions/ not having good proportions…or trying to make impressions. Nothing is up to mark. Hope they find way to fix it sooner than later.
