Hero MotoCorp HX250R

The HX250R from Hero MotoCorp features a 249cc four stroke single cylinder, liquid cooled engine that produces 30.5 HP @ 9000 RPM and that’s not even the best part. The weight of the HX250R is 139 kgs!. That is some serious power to weight ratio. Hero MotoCorp claims that the 0-60 kmph time is just 2.7 seconds, sadly they did not mention a 0 -100 and a top speed, but for sure it’s leaving the CBR250R far behind. The HX250R also features optional combined ABS. 1596907_544630558967765_275732058_o Even though the bike looks sporty the seating position is actually quite relaxed. The handle bars are higher than in a typical low set sport bike position. The suspension also has the give for a reasonably comfortable ride. Another first is the under seat exhaust in an Indian motorcycle. Braking is handled by 300 mm 3 piston Brembo at the front and a 220 mm single piston Brembo at the rear. There has been no mention on the price of the HX205R yet, our guess is that it would be in the 2 – 2.2 lakh range, anything below that and its a steal and anything above that is a steep ask. Expect to see the bike hit showrooms first week of April.
