Indian two wheeler manufacturer Hero Motocorp has always been known for motorcycles which are rough, rugged, durable and at the same time, the most efficient. Most of Hero’s commuter motorcycles are targeted at the working class and also at the rural inhabitants, as their requirement is just durability and efficiency, while being easy to maintain. For many years now, Hero has been fulfilling this requirement and they intend to do so in the coming years too.
Hero’s latest commuter motorcycle has been spotted testing again and, yes it is going to be the most affordable motorcycle from the Hero stable after its launch as it will be priced lower than the HF-Dawn which currently costs Rs. 37,900 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The motorcycle was spotted testing in its natural environment, which is in the rural areas, and also in the state of operation it will mostly be used in. The motorcycle was spotted with a heavy load tied onto the rear seat, and it looked as though it was built to handle the workload.
To keep costs in check, Hero Motocorp will resort to the sharing of parts between motorcycles. The new motorcycle too seemed to share many parts with the Hero HF-Dawn. The spoke wheels, front telescopic shocks, rear view mirrors, Turn indicators, handle bar and switchgear too are direct lifts from the HF-Dawn.
Apart from all these features, the motorcycle also sported high mileage nylon tires, minimalistic body panels, simple design head and tail lamps, a new redesigned single pod instrument cluster and very little chrome, all of which seem to be cost cutting factors which seem to explain the possibility of an expected price tag of around Rs. 35,000. At this price, it will be the most affordable Hero Motorcycle till date, and we expect it to sell in great numbers, especially in the rural areas.
