It's Official: Hero HX250R Launch Plans Shelved!

Hero MotoCorp has officially confirmed that Hero HX250R launch plans have been shelved and the brand won't be launching the much-awaited 250cc full-faired sport bike in India. This comes as a huge disappointment for Hero fans who were waiting for the bike from past 2-3 years! As per a recent interview with Times of India, Hero MotoCorp made it clear that the market for 250cc sport bikes is more or less dead and they will now focus on an all-new 300cc full-faired sport bike. As per the statement given by the company official: “It doesn’t make a wise decision to come up with a bike that in the end does not really hit the centre-of-gravity of the market where you are going enter as a new competitor in a new segment.” [caption id="attachment_166981" align="aligncenter" width="570"]Hero HX250R Launch It's Official: Hero HX250R Launch Plans Shelved![/caption] Hero HX250R was unveiled in India in September 2014 and the 250cc sport bike was developed in collaboration with Erik Buell Racing. As per the official specifications, HX250R was powered by a 249cc single cylinder liquid-cooled engine with maximum power of 31 BHP @ 9000 rpm and maximum torque of 23 NM @ 7000 rpm. As far as new product launches are concerned, Hero will launch 3 new products next week on Monday - Xtreme 200S, all-new 125cc scooter (Aava 125), and updated model of Passion Pro with Hero's new 110cc engine.
