I feel the mileage should go above 67 kmpl. Presently, I am using Honda CB Trigger 150cc bike Petrol which gives me 67 kms per litre, so the diesel ought to give above that compared to that.
What is the expected mileage of Hero RNT diesel?
29 December 2022 05:48
Mileage figure of the Hero RNT diesel has not been disclosed by the company. We expect the diesel motorcycle to return a 50+ kmpl as the engine size and power values are quiet restricted, making it fuel efficient offering from the company. The use of diesel in the 2 wheeler industry can revolutionize the cost of running of the 2 wheeler's, making the rides more efficient and pocket friendly. The bike comes with a 150 cc diesel engine, producing 13.5 BHP and 35 NM of torque. The turbocharged diesel engine will be a good performer also as the weight of the bike is merely 136 kg. It is expected to be priced at INR 80,000.
