EBR 250 a step closer to European launch

EBRdesigned Hero HX250R expected to go on sale in India this October

HERO'S HX250R will go on sale in India this October according to reports, a move which could signal the European launch next year.

The EBR-designed 249cc single looks impressive on paper, with a claimed 31hp and 19.2lbft. At the right price it could make tough competition for the likes of Honda’s 30hp CBR300R.

It was first unveiled in India a year ago. Hero then brought it to the Milan motorcycle show in November, where the firm announced its plans to sell bikes in Europe from next year.

The firm – the world's largest two-wheeler maker – has also applied to trademark the 'HX250R' name in Europe.

The bike is a joint venture with Erik Buell Racing, which Hero has owned a near 50% stake in since 2013. Visordown recently revealed how shipping documents suggested the HX250R prototypes were built in America by EBR.

Indian motoring websites are reporting that Hero sources say it will be launched over there this October, with a price equivalent to £2,150.

The sites also say it will have two power modes, with one reducing output to 24hp.
