    The tank looks like that of ZMA or derived from it.
    Not sure of this will ever make it to Production.
    No engine specs or any other details revealed.
    Disappointing.

    Buddy, I do not know why my post disturbed you. I was just mentioning what i saw.
    The tanks may not be the same but they looks similar in design. ZMA tank for reference.

    And, I am disappointed because, none of the concepts like HX250, Hastur which were unveiled years ago, made it to Production yet. They have already stopped production of Impulse (Hence the name XPulse? replacement for Impulse?), ZMA R, regular Xtreme and Hunk.
    A Hero fan here who has owned Splendor, Hunk in the past and who owns a ZMA now.

    "Overall we plan to launch half a dozen products during the current fiscal and premium models would be part if it."

    You are absolutely right!

    Infact, the concept bike has the engine borrowed from the ZMR! That is the Karizma ZMR engine as well!

    Dont expect HX250R or the Hastur to be launched any time soon! If you do! You are in for a great disappointment!!
