Hero MotoCorp has plan to reveal some bike this year. Recently, company launch Glamour 125 in Argentina, this was manufacturer´s first ever global launch out of India. From a very long time Hero was missing the 200cc and 200cc+ segment. Now-a-days this segment has the most potential to attract and find buyers. Finally, this year Hero filled patent for its new model Hero XF3R.
2016 Auto Expo was the event where this model was revealed first time. This bike has many features which are not available now in Hero bikes. So, this bikes can be called as futuristic vision for Hero MotoCorp.
Available Details about Hero XF3R
It also can be called as first ever muscular bike by this manufacturer. XF3R looks aggressive and muscular in the cover with paint combination of Orange, silver and black.
Front alloy wheel is finished in black but this time rear uses orange wheel (Hero have done this before on Xtreme).
XF3R will equipped with 300cc single cylinder, liquid cooled engine. Although exact details on max. power and max torque is saved for launch but we expect for 23bhp max. power and 20 Nm of max. torque at higher RPMs.
Features to Know in XF3R
There are some highlight features in this new upcoming bike like:
- Inverted Fork Suspension Setup at the Front
- Single sided mono shock, Swing arm suspension at rear
- Functional Air Intake
- Pirelli Sport Demon Tyre
- Dual channel ABS
- Full Digital Instrument Cluster
- High Mounted Exhaust Setup
All these features really make this bike bit attractive and practical. But there is some feature missing from this bike like no gear indicator in instrument cluster. 13k rpm limit will surely push limit of engine, but only after revel of max. torque, this can say that it will of sports nature or cruise nature. In term of look we can expect sporty behaviour by bike´s end.
Pricing will really important factor for this, Bajaj is already providing feature packed affordable Dominar. BMW G310R, Dominar 400, KTM RC200, Duke 390 will it´s main rival. Yamaha is also going to launch its new bike on 24 January, this bike also could be competitor for this one.
Will this Bike got success in Indian Market, it totally will depend upon lauched bike features and pricing strategy.
