Honda NXR150 Bros

Hero MotoCorp’s dirt bike has been doing the rounds all over the internet off late and now thanks to our good friends at Motoroids and Deepak Dongre (active commentator on MotorBeam), we can now confidently say which is that dirt bike. The Hero MotoCorp dirt bike is none other than the Honda NXR150 Bros, which is sold in Brazil as dual (on road and off-road) bike. It can run on both petrol and ethanol but the Indian version will only run on petrol. The NXR150 Bros uses a 149.2cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, OHC engine which produces 13.8 BHP of power and 13.6 Nm of torque. It uses Honda’s PGM-FI (fuel injection) system and has a tank capacity of 12 liters (2.3 liter reserve).

The instrument cluster of the NXR150 Bros has a odomoter, tripmenter, fuel gauge, turn indicators, light indicators and warning lights for the FI system. The telescopic suspension at the front has 180mm travel. The monoshock suspension at the rear has 150 mm stroke. With 240 mm front discs and 110 mm rear drums, the NXR150 sports high profile tyres for bad roads. Expect the bike to have a saree guard for India when Hero MotoCorp launches it later on in 2012. This is one of the bikes which Hero MotoCorp gets from Honda as part of its licensing deal which runs till 2014. The dirt bike weighs just 119 kgs and is available in red, orange and black colours.
