    Its a small bike, but it caused a revolution here in India when it came.

    ( got a black one though )

    It was a 150cc bike – most of the bikes (apart from the bullets) were around 100cc .

    It would touch 100kmph in a jiffy

    and it was the best looking bike around that time..

    you can see pics of it on my homepage [:D]

    Is that engine based on a Honda?

    yes. the engine is honda .
    basically about 10 years back foreign companies could not sell their products directly in indian markets. so Honda and Hero did a deal, so that Hero could sell bikes with Honda engineering. Its marketed as Hero Honda, manufactured in India … but the engineering is all Honda.

    The contract between the two companies has ended this year, and we are expecting Honda bikes now in the market. However, the latest news about the bikes is a bit depressing. Seems that Honda wants to come with 150 bikes this year, while we were waiting with bated breth for 250cc or more. :-(

    Gotta say, Hero is a name that just wouldn’t work over here. Decent looking bike though

    Well, since we don’t have much options here.. we had to stick to the ‘hero’ :-). They also come out with cycles … if you are interested ;-)

    Good looking little bike, I’d have one despite the name ;-)
