Vehicle Overview Hero HX250R is still one of the most awaited products in India. The quarter liter segment actually lacks competition while Honda CBR250R enjoys an exclusive space for fully faired sport bikes in the country. HX250R will rival the same and seems quite good on paper with its 249cc engine producing 31 BHP and 23 Nm of torque. The weight was quoted to be 139 kg by Hero MotoCorp, providing the HX250R with loads to power on every front. It claims a top speed of 165 kmph while the rivals on the list includes KTM RC200, Benelli TNT 25 and Mahindra Mojo. It may get priced around INR 1.40 lakh.

Hero HX250R - Lean & Mean 250cc Sports Bike

How many months should I wait for Hero HX250R?
29 December 2022 05:51
The Hero HX250R has no exact date of its launch as the problem in the bankruptcy issue of the EBR, the company in the design of HX250R, has just solved few days ago and it will take time for Hero to get the bike in its production ready version. The bike on the Auto Expo needed many improvements for a more practical approach on normal roads and HX250R can be seen as a big launch for the company. The bike comes with a sport bike design, making out 31 BHP and 26 NM of torque out of its 250 cc engine. With 139 kg of lightweight approach, the bike would be a really good racer in its segment. It is expected to be priced between 1.3-1.5 lakh and ABS is seen optional on the bike.

Hero hx 250r should have sound exhaust like cbr 250r and design should be more sporty like cbr. Hx 250r can have the color white with orange or blue with white or white with black or white with red or may be tricolour like cbr............

Ugliest bike in 250cc Segment...even It does not comparable with Pulsar 200RS in terms of design. Pulsar RS200 looks 1000times better than this.

1)Maximum Power
20.8 Bhp @ 8500 rpm

Maximum Torque
19.12 Nm @ 7000 rpm (2)Maximum Power
19.2 BHP @ 7500 rpm

Maximum Torque
19.12 Nm @ 7000 rpm .second is best as per torque .power=(8500/7500)x19.2=21.76 bhp .so 0.96 bhp is more than first one .overall second one is more comfort for the same driving effort. ER/DR

(1)24.2 BHP (24.5 PS) @ 9750 rpm,
18.6 NM @ 8000 rpm (2)19.2 BHP @ 7500 rpm 19.35 NM @ 6000 rpm .cc is 223.
=(9750/7500)x19.2=24.96ps second one is best but 0.46ps not considerable so both are same .

Mukkamala Ramu

I think all are same.Exmple :(1)18.8 bhp at 8400rpm cc is 220 and 17.5 Nm @ 7000 rpm(2)19.2 BHP @ 7500 rpm,19.35 NM @ 6000 rpm cc is 223
second one is best

I read all can you say 0-60 in x seconds 0-100 in xx seconds.we cant predict it exactly like sri hari kota you will say about speed of bike at 1000rpm,2000rpm ..up to red mark rpm and mileage ,vibrations,engine sound .It gives evry things such as pick up,comfortability etc.

Mukkamala Ramu

for high speed bike /high cc bike its weight should be sufficient for normal weight person so that bike would go smoothly other wise there will be problem at after 120kmph.

Exhaust is just below seat. Guys take care when you are riding with your girl if she is wearing churidar or other long dresses.

1. Hero HX250R has a dual mode power and economy, power mode for punchy performance and economy for better mileage no other bike in this segment has that feature.
2. It has all round ability in short its all in one bike, its design has all the features like touring, sports, if the faring is removed then it can be a good street fighter bike and by just adding button tires it can be used for off road as well, excellent touring bike for long rides.
3. Other competitor like RC390, R25, R3, are race oriented bikes good for race tracks but not recommended for long rides as the design is not for touring.
4. And with regards to Bajaj and Honda, Bajaj bikes always have quality issues and honda bikes are always under powered. example CBR250 is the most under powered and slowest bike in 250cc segment.
5. Hero bikes the quality is good, and also spare parts are cheap as well as wide range of service center available, and most importantly not to forget the legend Bharadwaj Dayala is the only person from India who did a world tour on a Hero bike Karizma.

Not sure it will be priced so close to Karizma ZMR... Pricing HX250R so close to Karizma ZMR will surely cannibalize the sales of the latter... It will surely be priced above Duke 200 and below Duke 390 might be very very close to RC 200

technical sound best for indian road and for indians thought, but bike colour is outdated, i had attached a pic that made by hero ie saffron and silver, this colour is advance and new in look, also say eye catching colour then it model also look new because of its latest thought of colour, they can charge extra for that.

Indian roads are not good for two wheelers because of theire poor maintenance by the depts.only suitable for four vehicle tax may be minimised or exempted for two wheelers

silencer alone looks ugly, and the seats may require preferably more cushion for better comfort. Apart from that this bike has the best package and looks very promising.

HERO has done well this year..cheers for them!

saw the HATSUR (620cc) concept looks good but pillion is kinda small!

HONDA yes they made themself look pathetic in 250cc segement now but before yr 2000 they ruled the 250 CC segment..

u guys forget the old CBR 250(1990) it had twin cylinder it ruled the 250CC segement no bikes was able to beat that!!

Now ay days cars maintanace is more.accidents risk is more because of road widths and worst individual have option to go for 250cc bikes to reach their distinations which are above 100kms.

It impressed me to buy it.power and torque are ok.weight is 137 which is below of karisma r.if it has all qualities of k-r which are fine refined engine with low sound at 150+ speed best mileage low/nill vibrations of body,definitely it would stay as good bike.I like to test drive it and deside to buy it.

After a long silence, they are back with a bang. Was wondering how they would do without Honda's Tech. Pretty neat. New original design and very sporty. The original speculative pictures on the net gave me a scare. This one is cool. They are on the right track. Not to mention, a fully Indian company making this is pretty awsome. Yamaha, honda and suzuki are international brands with lot of experience in the sporty segment. Hero has just done it this time on its own. Thats big feather in their cap

it is making us full , 250 cc dohc engine bike with 81 bore size and 48.5 stroke size ????. if you check out then check for 200 NS it gives 23+ bhp power with bore size 72 and 49 stroke size. this is just only higher volume is 50 cc and just 9 size increase in bore . it rally making us a full with the look like a sports bike but aerodynamics and handle position doesn't makes aerodynamics like sports bike, for this look at cbr 150r, 250r, Yamaha r15 1.0, 2.0, , they are rivals of this bike, but more quality and much more experience of a sports bike. even if rival as 200NS it is street fighter sports bike . it really touches 153 kmph, but it not have much more poer like as 250 cc bikes, but it could . think about this .
