After breaking up with Honda and with the Japanese partner, Hero MotoCorp is pulling out all stops towards unveiling its first genius motorcycle- an all new 250cc sports bike at the upcoming Auto Expo in 2014.
The motorcycle is developing in collaboration with Hero Moto’s American technology partner Erik Buell Racing (EBR).
One of the informer added, “Hero is determined to showcase to the world its capability and competence in bringing world-class products with superior technology on its own in quick time. It is currently working on several models ranging from low-engine displacement to higher-powered motorcycles and scooters. However, the first bike on a new platform to hit the market will be a 250cc motorcycle.”
Hero Moto’s R&D highly-skilled engineers team from Gurgaon and Dharuhera have been stationed at the EBR centre at East Troy in Wisconsin, US for the past several months. They are working very closely with EBR engineers on this project.
This high-powered 250cc bike with cutting-edge technology and next-generation styling has been jointly conceptualized, designed and developed by Hero and EBR engineers. “While the initial development is being done at the EBR centre, the complete development and manufacturing of the bike will be done at Hero’s plants in India,” said a source.
