The new offering from Hero, the HX 250R will be equipped with dual riding modes. The two modes are ‘City’ and ‘Sports’ modes. City mode is for getting a better fuel efficiency while riding in city or anywhere else and the Sports mode is for track or highways for getting a punchy fast ride. The HX 250R will be the first Indian bike that will come with riding modes feature. There will be two ECU units monitoring two modes. The HX 250R is also reported to also feature DMFi (Dual Mode Fuel Injection) technology.
The motorcycle is powered with a 249 cc single cylinder water-cooled that churns out 31 bhp of max power and 26 Nm of peak torque. The bike is claimed to be doing 0-100 kmph in close to 9 seconds. The engine of HX 250R is developed solely by Hero without taking any technical help from its former partner Honda. The braking of HX 250R will feature an optional ABS.
If HX 250R priced sensibly it is sure to eat up the market of Bajaj’s new RS200, KTM RC200 and Honda’s CBR250R. Motorcycle looks incredibly beautiful and comes with a powerful engine as well. It is expected that Hero will launch HX 250R in short time.
