Hero has been announcing for the last many months that their focus is now on ‘premium’ motorcycles (apart from scooters) and this is what they have come up with. Apart from these, they have recently, after a long wait of four years, cleared that HX 250R project, the only motorcycle which appeared to be droolworthy, has been shelved and their reason will make you laugh!
The only hope from the company is the XPulse adv which has been confirmed for launch this year.
