Bike enthusiasts in India can look forward to even more exciting times ahead as Stephan Schaller, BMW Motorrad’s head man, has confirmed that the ‘rumoured’ sub-500 cc motorcycle range, to be built in conjunction with TVS Motors, will be unveiled in 2015.

However, that news piece also carried a spy pic says is a “TVS co-developed bike undergoing prototype testing”, but to us it looks like the Hero-EBR’s HX 250R. Okay, look at that underseat exhaust, the shape of the tail light, the pointy flashers on its sides, and rear footrest brackets – that’s an HX250R for sure for us.

So, if Hero MotoCorp has begun testing their upcoming flagship, when can we expect it to come here? Earlier this year, Munjal spoke about launching some eight to ten two-wheelers including the refreshed models in this financial year. Now, while most of them, like the Karizma twins, Splendor Pro Classic, Passion Pro TR, etc, have already been launched recently, two to three launches still remain.
Spyshot of HX250R
The first one would certainly be the Xtreme Sports, which should be out any day now, and the HX 250R should then come into the showrooms latest by around March-April. Some of them may launch in the next three months while some may take more time. Hastur, if it goes into production, is more of a 2016-17 candidate.

So not only would Hero MotoCorp won’t have to worry about new and, possibly, more potent competition, it would also have enough time in hand to place one more product in between the HX 250R and the 620cc Hastur.
