    Default AE14: Hero Moto Corp Updates from Auto Expo 2014

    HERO MOTOCORP SETS NEW BENCHMARKS FOR THE GLOBAL TWO-WHEELER INDUSTRY
    DEMONSTRATES TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGH WITH A SERIES OF CONCEPT BIKES

    · “HASTUR” - 620-CC SUPER-PREMIUM STREET-FIGHTER MOTORCYCLE
    · “iON” – THE FUTURISTIC HYDROGEN-FUEL CELL POWERED TWO WHEEL CONCEPT VEHICLE
    · “SimplEcity” – FIRST LIGHTWEIGHT URBAN ELECTRIC MOTORCYCLE FROM INDIA



    DRIVES IN PATH-BREAKING INNOVATIONS IN EXISTING 100CC RANGE TO INTRODUCE YOUTH-FOCUSED VARIANTS

    · SPLENDOR PRO CLASSIC – INDIA’S FIRST 100CC BIKE WITH CAFÉ RACER STYLING
    · PASSION TR – INDIA’S FIRST 100CC ON-OFF BIKE



    “Being the global leader in two-wheelers, we have been challenging the routine and the conventional. Our new motto is to drive change through path-breaking innovations. With our finger on the pulse of the youth, we are therefore developing products that will cater to cus tomers around the world, both in the near and long-term.

    “We have now successfully developed an ecosystem of technology research & development that is designed to think beyond the obvious and deliver future-ready mobility solutions. The all-new 620-cc Hastur, which will likely mark our foray into the superbike segment, and the futuristic SimplEcity and ion concept bikes showcase the shape of things to come from this ecosystem.”

    Pawan Munjal
    Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer

    Hero Hastur – The All-New 620-cc motorcycle

    The 620-cc Hastur promises to shake-up the middleweight motorcycle segment with its lean, nimble and powerful appeal.

    The Hastur comes with a water-cooled parallel twin engine that delivers the power of 80 PS @ 9600 rpm. This explosive power delivery comes from a new and very compact powerplant that serves as a stressed member of the chassis for optimum mass centralisation to give best in class handling and manoeuvrability. The unique design features with auto style power transfer to give best fuel economy, advanced cylinder head and combustion design for reduced emissions.

    The Hastur makes an aggressive style statement with its street fighter looks and the minimalistic bodywork strips it to performance essentials to showcase big sticky tyres, performance suspension and brakes, geodesic tubular chassis, and a powerful engine. With all this and much more, this motorcycle is ready to respond to the athletic rider’s every desire like nothing ever ridden before.

    Hero iON- The Environment-friendly Hydrogen-fuel cell vehicle Concept

    Hero iON gives us an exciting glimpse into the future, and demonstrates Hero's beliefs and commitment to the endless road of motorcycling and personal transport.

    All electronic, ion has a hydrogen fuel cell in the center structure, as well as advanced batteries and super capacitors to smooth energy needs of braking and acceleration. The batteries use an advanced Li - Air technology that has extremely high energy density since they use oxygen from the air instead of storing in an oxidizer internally. Airy, open wheels contain the rotor component of hubless electric traction motors that uses magnetic levitation technology that works on zero friction. When needed, they double up as brakes.

    ion’s light finger-touch controls the handle grip. The steering is through a rotating front and rear wheel and suspension systems around the pivots that are mounted on the power module. Multi-axis gyros and accelerometers maintain the stability at all times. All-directional sensors for VSA (Vehicle Situational Awareness) keep track of the surrounding traffic flow and make corrections to the PBS systems as needed.

    Its highly advanced suspension system, called the m-link, utilizes magnetorheological damping which adapts to the road condition real time using several on-board sensors. These sensors continuously vary the power of electromagnet that controls the damping characteristics of the suspension system.

    Core basic vehicle information is available in the compact instrument cluster, but full information and communication is transmitted to the rider’s helmet. VSA system overrides any lower priority communications when traffic density becomes significant. The Hero ion welcomes you to the whole new green motorcycling experience.

    Hero SimplEcity – First Electric Motorcycle From India

    The all-new SimplEcity, the lightweight urban electric motorcycle, reiterates Hero MotoCorp’s commitment to efficient, reliable personal transportation for a green planet.

    The revolutionary SimplEcity promises to offer an efficient and reliable intra-city travel experience to the urban commuters. By keeping weight to a minimum of 35 kg and designing every system for optimum performance in city conditions, Hero has created a whole new segment of motorcycles for a cleaner and greener planet.

    The SimplEcity comes with innovative features, such a removable battery pack for the convenience of recharging. Another innovation is the dashboard that is delivered through the rider’s smart phone through the free SimplEcity application. This can be achieved by conveniently mounting the phone on the handlebars. The “walk’ mode lets rider roll it effortlessly when you walk or gives it a push if taken upstairs.

    The 100-cc ‘Splendor Pro Classic’

    Having an irresistible blend of vintage and young styling, Hero MotoCorp’s flagship brand comes in a new version as the all-new 100-cc Splendor Pro Classic. It offers a distinct riding experience by taking you back in time with its cafe racer styling, including the new handle bar, classic round headlight and tail light, cafe racer cowl and added chrome parts such as the front and rear fenders, winkers, suspension cover and the round shape rear view mirrors. The perfectly-styled Splendor Classic is powered by a 100cc Air cooled, 4-stroke single cylinder OHC, producing maximum torque of 8.04 Nm @ 4500 rpm.

    The 100-cc “Passion Pro TR”

    The all-new 100-cc Passion Pro TR offers an adventurous ride to young Indian bikers with its ability to take them off the conventional roads. The Passion Pro TR offers an exciting off-pavement ride capacity with its host of new external features that includes on-off tyres, sturdier handlebars with cross brace, high front fender, hugger front fender, headlight grill , hand guards for added protection, bash plate and fuel tank pads. Adding extra punch to the styling are the all new colours and graphics.

    HMCL last week unveiled a slew of game-changing two-wheelers across-the-spectrum. The range of two-wheelers on new platforms include the new 250-cc sports bike ‘HX250R’, the Turbocharged direct injection Diesel Concept Bike ‘RNT’ , India’s first series hybrid scooter ‘LEAP’, and the 110cc scooter ‘Dash’ and the 150-cc Xtreme Sports on existing platforms.
