Hero's pre-Auto Expo madness, unveils five new bikes

Hero has also showcased its latest performance motorcycle, codenamed HX250R, that's been developed along with their technological partners Erik Buell Racing. Slated to be its latest flagship motorcycle, the HX250R is powered by a new 249cc, 4-stroke, single cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected unit churns out class leading 31bhp and can hit 0-60kph in a claimed 2.7 seconds.

Teamed with a 6 speed gearbox, it gets Eco and Power riding modes, rear monoshock suspension, combined braking system, optional ABS, twin headlamps, under-seat exhaust and seven high-tech safety and performance sensors. The HX250R will be launched in the second part of FY15, which in normal terms means post October 2014 launch.

There's even a 150cc bike on offering on the next page...
