Known as the Hero XF3R Concept, the street-fighter showcased at the biennial event featured a muscular design with a combination of silver, black and red paintjob. A few notable features seen on the concept include an inverted fork suspension setup at the front, a single-sided mono-shock and swing arm, functional air-intakes and Pirelli Sport Demon tyres, dual channel ABS, fully digital instrument cluster and a high mounted up-swept exhaust setup.


The production ready XF3R would be powered by a 300cc liquid single cylinder engine although detailed figures such as power output and torque remain undisclosed. What is known though is the fact that this motor would come mated to a six speed transmission. Once launched in India, the Hero MotoCorp XF3R is likely to rival the likes of the BMW G310R. More details should surface soon. Stay tuned.

    Hello from Australia…

    My eyes – my eyes! This bike gives me this feeling. Why?

    Well, without going into a lengthy essay…
    There’s a rich vein of motorcycling history available for budding designers to tap. This has been eased with the internet, 3D visualisation and 3D printing. So what I see in the XF3R is a mishmash of styling influences. Most notably, a Kawa EN6R front-end, some Katana around the tank/seat and finally Honda VFR (RC/NC or 800) at the back. The Pro-arm doesn’t help this impression, but the different coloured wheels really make it look like an arranged…marriage.
    Thanks for reading,
