The visual appeal of HX250R is undeniable with its sporty ‘lightning bolt’ design theme. The bike features a large fly-screen, a tank that extends as part of the front fairing and a panel hiding the fuel-filler lid. There is also a split seat for the pillion rider. An LED tail light brings up the rear, which also houses a sleek under the seat exhaust system.
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 also has a telescopic fork in front and a mono-shock at the rear, bolted to a trellis swing arm.
The Hero HX250R is expected to cost between 1.3 and 1.5 lakhs, and will put the bike in direct competition against soon to be launched Pulsar 200SS. HX250R will sell alongside the Karizma R and ZMR.
