With the 12th Auto Expo just
round the corner, Hero MotoCorp has grabbed attention towards itself by
unveiling 5 new models, the highlight being the new diesel scooter concept
called RNT and the HX250R, a 250cc sport bike. The RNT is a combination of ruggedness
and practicality topped with fuel efficiency and technology. The concept is
equipped with a 150cc diesel engine, which can be coupled with a turbocharger
as an option. Also there is an optional electric motor for the front wheel,
making it a two-wheel drive scooter to muster difficult terrain. Another
highlight on the RNT is that is has a power take-off (PTO) shaft.
The HX250R is a 250cc liquid cooled sport
motorcycle. The bike has a kerb weight of 139kg and a 6-speed constant mesh
transmission. Other goodies include anti-lock braking system and an under-seat
exhaust. LEAP is a hybrid scooter which couples a 124cc petrol engine with an
8kW electric traction motor. The scooter gets aerodynamic styling and all-LED
lighting. Another scooter which is nearly ready for production is the 111cc
DASH. The final model is the new Xtreme Sports, with a 150cc single producing
15.2bhp of power. Pawan Munjal, Managing Director & Chief Executive
Officer, Hero MotoCorp Ltd. Stated, “This is yet another example of the India story.
There’s more to come, a slew of products, including new concepts which you will
