Hero is working on a near 300cc, single-cylinder performance-oriented motorcycle, which will go on sale around the middle of 2018. This bike is inspired by the XF3R concept bike that Hero showed at the 2016 Auto Expo. The bike is apparently in its final stages of validation.
This new 300cc bike, with the 200cc Xtreme and the XPulse adventure motorcycle will sit atop the bike maker’s portfolio. Hero MotoCorp intends to retain its customer base by adding new premium and aspirational products.
Pawan Munjal, CMD, Hero MotoCorp said, “I am sure when you will see me after the Auto Expo, having seen this (the XPulse) and some of the products at the Auto Expo and the directional posture that Hero MotoCorp has taken, you will change your view. We are putting a lot of focus on some of the areas such as the high growth segments.”
