While the Yamaha R25 production model images and the KTM RC 390 spy pics have been hogging most of the lime light of late, one bike, which we feel, is an equally promising product is the Hero HX 250R. We’ve got to learn that the Hero HX250R launch would happen during festive season this year and here are all the details of the upcoming model. Worth mentioning is that the Hero HX 250R will follow both the ZMR and ZMA facelifts.
Hero HX 250R Engine- The HX 250R is powered by a 250cc, 4 stroke, single cylinder, fuel injected DOHC, Liquid cooled, engine that has a max power of 31 PS, which is higher than that pf the Honda CBR250R. The engine will come mated to a six speed manual gearbox. Hero claims that the bike has optimized intake and exhaust systems that help deliver a healthy power and a good fuel economy. The bike also gets a Closed Crankcase Ventilation System to ensure zero emission from the crankcase.
Hero HX 250R Suspension, Brakes and Tires- The Hero HX250R sports telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers at front, while the rear of the bike gets a monoshock that has a 5 step adjustable preload and shim valve damping. Braking is courtesy a 300mm disc brake with triple piston caliper. There’s a 220mm linked disc unit at the rear. The bike gets optional ABS. The bike rides on 17×2.75 inch alloy wheel up front that has been shod with a 110/80R – 17 rubber, while the rear gets a 17 x 4.0 inch alloy wheel shod with 140/70R-17 rubber.
