Hero MotoCorp has showcased a variety of two-wheelers – from scooters to concept bikes – at the ongoing EICMA 2023 event in Milan. The striking red 2.5R XTunt, which might inspire a new 250cc offering, was the most distinctive concept model of all. It managed to get a lot of attention, as it has been specially designed for stunt riding and has an eye-catching appearance. This fresh concept is being marketed as a bike with exceptional performance. The bike maker has not yet stated if the motorcycle will go into production. The company has also unveiled the Concept Lynx, the Xoom 160, the Xoom 125R, and the Vida V1 Pro.

Hero Concept 2.5R XTunt: Design Details

Hero claims that the Concept 2.5R XTunt has been designed to precisely cut through bends and provide a thrilling and confidence-boosting ride. The lightweight design will make it easier to navigate through crowded metropolitan streets and narrow areas. It features a robust and aggressive stance; however, being a concept, it lacks lighting units like the ones found on a standard motorcycle. The engine and the exposed trellis frame of the concept bike appear to have been taken from the upcoming Karizma XMR. The motorcycle has a lofty seat, sharp body panels, and a stunt-ready tail portion. It’s finished in red and white. Moreover, the wheels sport a red shade with gold-finished front forks.

Hero Concept 2.5R XTunt: Engine Specs

Although not much information regarding the powertrain has been released, given the crankcase covers, it could be the same 210cc liquid-cooled engine that powers the Karizma XMR with a displacement of about 250cc – this means that it will have greater torque and power outputs. Along with the motorcycle, the manufacturer has included a follow-me drone.
