2014 Hero Building a 250cc Sport Bike

2014 Hero Building a 250cc Sport Bike, According to The Economic Times, the main newspaper of India, Hero MotoCorp working on a 250cc sport bike, in conjunction with Erik Buell Racing. You may remember that the Hero and EBR have agreed to a technical partnership, which also saw the Indian motorcycle manufacturer to be title sponsor of the Erik Buell Racing in the AMA Pro Racing Superbike series.

After his break in the relationship with Hero Honda, Hero MotoCorp has to rely on other companies for technical development. The Economic Times shows the same can be said for motor sport 250cc, the EBR handle the development of the engine, while Hero handles the business end of things, the quarter-liter production and distribution. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the report is that the engineers are working directly hero in the United States with Erik Buell Racing, a project personally overseen by the returning hero Pawan Munjal CEO in India. Expected to debut in February 2014, 250cc sport bike will come into the Indian market, as well as other overseas markets, in what sources told The Economic Times is “ambitious international business plan” for global penetration. How ambitious is the plan, and whether it includes the United States.? Only time will tell, but no matter which sport market debut in the 250cc bike, it’s going up against some stiff competition from Japanese and European manufacturers. In addition, the pink elephant in the room is whether Buell-loyal Americans would show the same passion for the product EBR, as they have in the past, if the engine is being developed by the company “American” is being built in India.
