    Default Hero 250 caught testing: xBhp News

    Source - Gaadi.com exclusive: Hero’s upcoming full faired bike caught on camera - Gaadi.com

    Guys, I don't know how trust worthy gaadi.com is, but the pics do look as if it is a Hero 250cc. The exhaust is Hero-ish. Fairing ZMR-ish. And that rear tire is still skinny.

    Could be, but why 250 when already had ZMA at 225. I think this could be a 300CC one, yeah the tyres look thin and exhaust looks like as for normal bike but that could be to mislead also, which could be later swapped by the authentic muffler and tyres.

    From the size of the bike, it could well be a 150cc instead of a 250cc bike. Check out the tyre size, front fork size, and that smallish tank (the overall package, in short). But let's wait for the final product at launch time!

    And if it's from Hero, they can do well to market the bike by using the CBZ name, since it has been (or was) associated with fast bikes and its familiar to the indian people.

    EDIT: This bike still has dual rear shocks!!! Good luck to Hero for this bike. It sure won't worry any other manufacturers!

    Its a HERO bike, no doubt about it as its running on their signature red colored gas charged shockers and exactly same rear view mirrors as ZMR but I think its face lifted lifted ZMR with some tweaks in design (to make it look sleek and toned) and performance because I think whenever they will launch a 250cc bike, they will launch a completely new bike may be under karizma brand or a newer one....

    Hero Cannot name their bikes with CB or CD name Honda has the copyright for them. Besides nothing is wrong with dual shocks in my opinion.
    Never upgrade without getting your basics RIGHT.

    Too big to be a 150 imo ....guessing its a tweaked more sport tourer type zmr ,coz exhaust is similar and the fairing(near engine cowl part) and hero trait almost 3" handlebar weights

    Sure, there's nothing wrong with dual shocks, since many bikes still have them. I was talking in the context of it's competitors (in terms of price and/or capacity). How will the potential buyer be convinced? Also, I'm pretty sure many existing ZMR owners aspire a mono-shock on their bikes. Just my thought...
