Hero MotoCorp to display 250cc bike at 2014 Auto Expo - developing in collaboration with EBR

Hero MotoCorp does not wants to be out of the race while Honda Motors is developing more 250cc and 500 cc bikes. Hero therefore, is working upon its own 250cc bike and will display the same at upcoming 2014 Auto Expo.

The motorcycle is being developed in collaboration with Hero Moto's American technology partner Erik Buell Racing (EBR), two persons involved with this closely-guarded project who did not want to be named. Other details except the cubic capacity - 250cc remains to be in the shell and no details have been thrown on the same as of now.

One of those persons added: "Hero is determined to showcase to the world its capability and competence in bringing world-class products with superior technology on its own in quick time. It is currently working on several models ranging from low-engine displacement to higher-powered motorcycles and scooters. However, the first bike on a new platform to hit the market will be a 250cc motorcycle."

A group of young and highly-skilled engineers from Hero Moto's R&D centres in Gurgaon and Dharuhera have been stationed at the EBR centre at East Troy in Wisconsin, US for the past several months, and are working very closely with EBR engineers on this project, the persons close to the project said. The high-powered 250cc bike with cutting-edge technology and next-generation styling has been jointly conceptualized, designed and developed by Hero and EBR engineers.

"This bike is being developed for the domestic market as well as for customers in global markets that Hero Moto plans to enter as part of its ambitious international business plan," said one of the persons close to the project.
