Hero 300-cc-plus Adventure Motorcycle


The Indian biking fraternity has been fervently hoping for this since Hero first threw their hat into the Dakar Rally ring. It may have taken a few rounds of what Hero are fond of calling “the toughest commute in the world”, but it looks like the Indian bike-maker is now ready to use all its learning from the Dakar and transfer it into a production motorcycle. In fact, a skeletal version of this upcoming go-anywhere bike was recently on display at a Hero event. This larger Xpulse (for lack of an official announceme­nt pertaining to its moniker) will draw heavily from the Hero 450 Rally Dakar machine and is expected to be propelled by 300-cc-plus engine. Considerin­g the success of the Hero Xpulse 200 in the Indian market and the brand’s experience in the Dakar thus far, this project for a larger and more powerful on/ off-roader is quite an enticing prospect.
