Hero MotoCorp had announced a dirt bike and the company is progressing on the development of the model. The highly camouflaged vehicle was spotted recently undergoing tests and is the first all new motorcycle from Hero MotoCorp. The bike features a long travel telescopic front suspension, high floating front mudguard, monoshock rear suspension, digital instrumentation, spoke wheels, tubular steel frame, exposed chain, front discs and rear drums. The ground clearance is very high and the dirt bike could feature an 150-200 cc engine which would be a four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled unit. The engine would be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and will most likely be tuned for low to mid-range torque. Prices should start around Rs. 80,000/- but there is no official confirmation from the company yet.
