- Hero MotoCorp showcased the HX 250R concept at the 2014 Delhi Auto Show
- The spied motorcycle is equipped with ABS
- The motorcycle will be powered by the same engine seen on the Hero Xtreme 200R
- Hero might launch the motorcycle post the launch of Xpulse 200 and 200T
Hero MotoCorp is prepping up for the launch of its highly anticipated off-roader and touring motorcycles Xpulse 200 and 200T later this month. It seems like the homegrown brand is also working on some other models as well. A video has surfaced online showcasing a fully faired motorcycle inspired from the Hero HX 250R. The motorcycle shown in the video is a bit different from what Hero has showcased in the concept version of the HX 250R.
The spied motorcycle sports a single headlight unit as compared to the twin-headlamp unit showcased in the HX 250R concept. The HX 250R was equipped with an under seat exhaust but the spied motorcycle has got a conventionally placed upswept exhaust muffler. The video also showcases the rectangular digital instrument cluster unit equipped on the motorcycle, the HX 250R concept sported a round digital instrument cluster.
The exhaust muffler seen on the spied motorcycle is quite similar to the one seen on the Hero Xtreme 200R. This confirms that the motorcycle might get its propulsion duties from the same engine that powers the Xtreme 200R. Hero Xtreme 200R is equipped with a 199.6 cc single cylinder motor that churns out 18.1 bhp of power and 17.1 Nm of max torque at 6500 rpm. Expect the motor to be in a different state of tune on this motorcycle and it might get the fuel-injection technology as well.

The short video showcases a 'Hero' badge on the side panel of the motorcycle and an 'ABS' sticker on the front forks. It is not clear if the motorcycle will be equipped with a single-channel unit or a dual-channel ABS unit. Hero MotoCorp might launch the motorcycle post the launch of Xpulse 200 and Xpulse 200T. The spied motorcycle will replace the Hero Karizma ZMR. The homegrown brand is working hard to give a fresh breath to its Indian product line-up and it seems to be on the right track.
