Default Hero XF3R Concept to enter production, patent images leaked

Hero MotoCorp has reportedly filed a patent for the XF3R Concept's production version, which has been leaked on the Internet. If the bike does make it to production, it will likely become the flagship offering from Hero MotoCorp in India.

The XF3R was showcased as a design study concept at the auto expo last year. Though no official specs were revealed, the production bike is expected to be powered by a 300 cc engine. As a result, it will likely compete against the upcoming TVS Akula 310 and BMW G310R.

Major features of the XF3R Concept included upside down (USD) forks at the front, monoshock suspension at the rear, single-sided swing-arm, Pirelli Sport Demon tyres, a fully-digital instrument cluster and LED tail light. Braking setup featured a 300 mm disc at the front and 220 mm unit at the back, along with dual channel ABS. It also came with a 'Dual Map' technology, which was expected to be a ride mode selector offering two riding modes, economy-oriented and performance-oriented. It remains to be seen what all features from the concept are carried forward to the production-spec model.

Finally some good news for Hero fans. Till now the company has been busy in manufacturing and selling the low capacity Splendor and Passion range.

This one means business and it actually looked good in the concept form in Auto Expo 2016. Hopefully, they should carry all the features which they showcased in the Expo and make this a bike which people will seriously consider against Dominar, Mojo, and to be launched BMW and TVS offerings. Looks, upside down forks and mono-shock look the part, and they should focus on providing more power and reducing the vibrations (which is present is almost all the Hero bikes in higher revs).

Hero has got the recipe here, and I just hope they don't spot it like what they did with Karizma and CBZ.

I was waiting for HX250R in 2014. I am still waiting for it. Now this!

I wish Hero pull its socks and focus on their promises. 300cc is a very active market now. And when yamaha can launch a 250cc FZ for 1.19 lakhs ex showroom, ktm thrilling us with D390 @ 2 lakhs ex showroom and bajaj bowling us over by Dominar 400 @ 1.35 lakhs ex showroom, Hero should price it extremely competitively, if at all they make the bike.

.HX250R seems to have gone down into soup along with EBR.

Many bikes in pipeline, Xtreme 200S, XF3R, HX250R, Karizma Refresh.

Currently,they are more than happy updating their 100/125cc's. IMHO, it would not be very long for Hero before their procrastination would cost them dearly.

Usual bullshit from Hero...make a concept bike and launch it at an auto show. Then forget all about it while they focus on making profits and sales. They launched the Zir 150cc scooter at the 2014 auto show with much fanfare, left everyone drooling and then it never saw the light of day as well.
