Hero MotoCorp has been struggling to sell its 150 cc bikes. After featuring as the lowest 150cc seller for the last few months, things have looked a little bright with the more powerful Xtreme Sports and to replicate the same, Hero has officially launched the new 2016 Hunk at Rs 69,725 ex-showroom in Delhi.
According to the official specs updated at their website, the new 2016 Hunk produces 15.6 bhp of peak power at 8500 rpm and 13.5 Nm of maximum torque at 7000 rpm from its 149.2 cc air-cooled SOHC mill, which is the same tuune of the Xtreme Sports. It has a ground clearance of 163 mm and weighs (kerb) 146 kg.
As is a ritual, the new Hunk gets some cosmetic updates like a refreshed head lamp assembly, new decals and a restyled instrumentation console. The bike also gains a side stand indicator. The rear suspension springs are now black in colour. Hero also informs that the Hunk now comes with a new viscous air filter. A red Hero badging is also seen on the crankcase cover.
2016 Hunk Colors
The new Hunk is available in the following color options…
- Bold Brown
- Panther Black
- Matte Black
- Ebony grey
- Force Silver
- Blazing Red
2016 Hunk Prices & Variants
Braking duties continue to be administered by a 240 mm disc upfront and a 220 mm disc at the rear is an optional extra. The standard variant gets a 130 mm drum setup in the rear. Here are the prices of both…
- 2016 Hunk Front disc: Rs 69,725
- 2016 Hunk Front + Rear Disc: Rs 72,825
*both prices ex-showroom in Delhi and self-start and alloy wheels are standard offerings
These prices are aggressive and are Rs 3000 lesser than Xtreme Sports variant to variant. They are also lower than the chief competition Gixxer. Will the new Hunk pull it off for Hero?
