Auto Expo Live: Hero Unveils RADICAL New 620cc Naked HASTUR; Pics & Details

by Saad on February 6, 2014

Probably the biggest unveiling coming from an Indian auto manufacturer at the Auto Expo, apart from Bajaj’s new bigger Pulsars, was Hero’s HASTUR.

Taking the center stage at Hero’s stall, Hastur looks all the more a bike which naked-lovers will love. It carries futuristic design and wide, real wide handlebars.

Here are a few quick details on Hastur:

  • Powered by an al-new 620cc engine
  • Water cooled
  • Parallel Twin Cylinder
  • 80PS of blistering power
  • Kerb Weight of 160kgs
  • 0-100kmph in 3.8 seconds (claimed)
  • Torque figures not revealed

The new engine has been developed by Hero and doesn’t have any resemblance with Honda. Yes, partner EBR does have a role in the overall design and engineering of the biggest motorcycle from Hero.

Hastur looks real radical with its twin projector headlamps and very aggressive front biased side stance. Those meaty front and rear tyres add to the overall style of the bike and the company has really showed that they are here not to merry around and continue selling those 90s 97cc models, merely!

moreover, the ‘Hero’ endorsement on engine feel like ‘unbelievable 600cc’ since so far they had only 97cc bikes, low powered 223cc……

its been fixed in mind, Hero brand means ‘kithna detha hai’……….

any idea when this bike will be reality??……….. 2016?? …..2020 (Jesus)??

Will this serve to comuters. Come up with a good bike to challenge honda. Hero fails in india. Sri lanka too. What is this?

even if this hastur is a result of hero getting technology expertise from EBR, the latter themselves don’t have such a bold and beautiful naked in their stables. the trellis frame and swingarm is so n radical and futuristic. the headlamp though remind us the recently launched Z1000 from Suzuki.
hero, please bring this street-fighter to our shores soon and don’t let this be just a concept to prove your technical prowess and please bring it at sensible prices. and although this one looks great, having such long wheelbase I see a scope of increase in a little space for resting my pillions derriere, and that would make it more practical too. :)

I can see Buell written all over it. :-)

This is no Buell. The engine is the handiwork of AVL of Austria with most of the design coming from Engines Engineering of Italy, a company that was briefly the property of the Mahindras. I think this bike is till a very early concept and will take sometime to get on to the streets. Even then, the final form is unlikely to be anything like this.
