Finally some interesting news from Hero for the enthusiasts.

10

Price?

11

Easily the best looking 250cc to hit the roads! Great effort by HERO -- I hope this prods the other manufacturers into bringing something as exciting -- In 2014 we are going to be spoilt for choice !

12

The "highlights" that you have mentioned really shows a sincere and focussed effort by HERO -- sounds quite similar to the "features" that accompany the launch of a Japanese bike -- which is quite an achievement by our homegrown HERO !

13

I just hope they launch it soon..have been waiting for an awesome quarter-lite fully flaired bike under 1.5 L (on-road) but now i think i will buy this one even if its goes above that limit!
I just have 1 issue..the front look of the bike is a bit dry and thin..they should work upon it and make it a little fat and cover the engine parts that can be seen from the front..
the side look otherwise is impeccable!
better than the CBR's and R's!
I just dont get..why india doesnt have or encourages such automotive technology?
why everytime we have to take in some outsider..?!

15
chinna kounder

also I don't seem to find the rear mono-shock at all...any idea where its been placed?

17

u better go for some eye chekups !! its clearly written 31 bhp ! Proud to be a hero fanboy !! remember myself arguing wid everyone on almost evry single auto website dat why hero is better and now am proud that Hero hasn't let our (hero fanboys) fanboyism down :-)Awesome bike and features !!! must have a top end of around 170 coz my bro's N250R went till 177

18

31 hp

Calling Bajaj products pathetic isn't going to change the fact that the Bajaj-KTM alliance has been bringing out the best performance machines at a price suiting everyone's wallet. Hero's 250cc looks great on paper and hopefully will pack a punch too, good enough for those waiting for a Karizma upgrade since years. But all this doesn't equate to calling Bajaj bikes crap.........
