Hero And Zero To Develop Premium Electric Bikes - Quick Report

Hero MotoCorp is one of the world's largest motorcycle manufacturers, and Zero Motorcycles is a premium electric motorcycle and powertrain manufacturer based in California. Zero and Hero recently announced their intent to collaborate on business.

Now, as per the latest details available, the necessary agreements have been signed with a focus on new premium electric motorcycles. This collaboration is critical for Hero MotoCorp's future electric mobility outreach. Both companies hope to transform the EV riding experience. Also, to speed up the transition to electric mobility in India and other global markets.

The VIDA brand is currently Hero Motocorp's EV market strength. In Bengaluru, Delhi, and Jaipur, the company launched its first EV, the VIDA V1 scooter, as well as public charging infrastructure. A total of 300 public charging stations have been installed to date.

Hero MotoCorp's board of directors approved a US$60 million equity investment in Zero Motorcycles in September 2022. This large investment emphasises the significance of this collaboration. Today's projections emphasise electric vehicles as the future of mobility.

The Zero Motorcycles tech combined with traditional motorcycle design will keep the riding experience at the forefront of design synergies. Hero is dedicated to innovative products that provide exceptional value and riding fun. Royal Enfield has made a strategic investment in Stark Future SL, a Spanish manufacturer of electric motorcycles. Business fortitude is essential in predicting what the future of mobility will look like in a few years.

The collaboration of Zero and Hero is a significant step forward for sustainable clean technology in the mobility space. The introduction of Zero Motorcycles will hasten the transition to electric mobility in India and other global markets where Hero has a presence. This collaboration's scope aligns with Hero's goals of increasing exports in existing and new markets.

Most Popular Answers for Hero Hastur
Is Hero Hastur 620 more cool than Royal Enfield Classic 500?
2022-12-29 06:09:10 AM
Hero Hastur and Royal Enfield Classic 500 are two extremely different type of motorcycles. The 499 cc, fuel injected single cylinder Royal Enfield Classic 500 is carrying a big engine with loads of body weight onto it. The engine is relaxed and tuned in the cruiser motorcycle segment while the Hastur on the other hand is street concept with a much bigger 620 cc engine. Hastur takes just 4 seconds for a 0-100 kmph sprint, thanks to its super light body while the top speed sits at 240 kmph. Royal Enfield has a limited top speed of 130 kmph.
When Hero Hastur 620 is going to be launched in India? And where it will be available initially?
2022-12-29 05:59:10 AM
Hero Hastur has not yet been spotted in a production ready avatar in the country. This makes the fact more strong that it would take a lot more time for its launch. Hero's extensive work on the HX250R has also pushed back the 600cc segment bike. You can expect the same to be available at selected dealerships in the major 100 cities of the country as the sale of the bike would be focused in the most developed markets first. It carries a 620cc engine producing 78.9 BHP @ 9600 rpm and 72 NM @ 7750 rpm. The gearbox on the same is a 6-speed unit and comes with just 160 kg of kerb weight. It's top speed is rated at 240 kmph.
I have been seeing Hero Hastur reviews, pictures past a year and still have no idea when is it launching in India! Is somebody there to get me through this?

Hero Hastur has been seen till date in concept pictures only. The bike has not yet been spotted in it's production ready version and its launch would be most probably in the 3rd quarter of 2016. Firstly, Hero will focus on the HX250R and gain some market in the decaying Karizma section. The Hastur will fall in the category of middleweight street bikes and it will require intense testing before its launch. It was seen with a 620 cc engine producing 78.9 BHP and 72 NM of torque. The gearbox used was a 6-speed whereas the weight was kept very low at 160 kg. It is expected to be priced around INR 4,00,000.
How is the sound of the Hero Hastur 620 and can we put extra vibrational sound silencer.....like R1 and Hayabusa?
2022-12-29 05:53:54 AM
Hero Hastur has not been spotted in a production ready avatar. Its sound would be below the government directed NVH levels and putting a loud silencer for more noise would be strictly prohibited in the coming days. The time till the Hastur will be arrive, the officials will ban the use of aftermarket exhaust system as they have currently fined some riders as well as the garages who are involved in these cases. I expect that the exhaust note of the Hastur would be good enough that it does not require modifications to its exhaust system. It will get its power from a powerful 2-cylinder 620 cc engine producing 79 BHP and 72 NM of torque. It would most probably debut in 2016 as a mass production ready version.
