After unveiling products like the Hero HX250R, RNT diesel-electric hybrid scooter and a new 110cc scooter named Dash, it has emerged that Hero Motors is currently developing a 600cc bike which has been codenamed “Hastur”.
According to a report by ET, Hero Motors will showcase the bike in its concept avatar the Auto Expo 2014 this week. Economic Times have obtained the information from two highly placed sources of the event company which will handle Hero Motors’ stall at the Auto Expo.
“It has an aggressive street-fighter look. The big sporty tyres, performance suspension and the yellow coloured metal frame tubes make it look lean, nimble and powerful,” one of these two persons told ET on condition of anonymity.
“Going by the initial look of the bike, it seems to have been designed for the international markets, but it is likely to be launched in the domestic market as well at some stage, where super bikes sales are one of the fastest in the world,” says the other person.
This 600cc Huster is likley to borrow parts and tech from Eric Buell , with whom Hero Motors have signed a partnership deal. This bike has been developed for the international markets, and is likely to be launched in the Indian market too.
Although not much details are available, we can surely say that post its split with the Japanese auto giant Honda, Hero Motors are now coming up with block buster offerings. With the diesel electric concept scooter, they have surely upped the Indian scooter scene.
