Hero MotoCorp is about to reveal a new Harley-Davidson X440-based motorcycle, and a recent teaser gives us a look at what makes it stand apart. In addition to a robust fuel tank with the 'Mavrick' emblem, the next Hero Mavrick features a seat that is brown and black in colour and striking multi-spoke machined alloy wheels. In contrast to the Harley-Davidson X440, the Mavrick stands out thanks to its distinctive subframe that allows for a slimmer tail section.
The X440 features a TFT display, but this motorbike goes with an LCD unit, which is easier on the eyes and has a more minimalist design. The left side is circular and displays information about speed, revolutions per minute, gear position, and indicator lights. The right side is rectangular and shows data about navigation and notifications. This adds to the Hero Mavrick's technological appeal by suggesting that it has Bluetooth connectivity. With the reveal scheduled for January 22, enthusiasts can't wait for this unique addition to Hero's lineup to make its grand entrance.
Hero Mavrick 440: Hardware
A newly leaked spy image shows that the next Hero motorcycle will not be identical to the Harley-Davidson X440. In contrast to the X440's inverted units and 19-inch wheel, the anticipated features include standard telescopic front forks and a 17-inch front wheel. With a single 320 mm front disc and a 240 mm rear disc, dual-channel anti-lock brakes (ABS) should improve braking performance.
In contrast to the X440, the next Hero bike features a more upright riding posture, making it possible to comfortably transport a passenger. The spy shot reveals some interesting features, such a one-of-a-kind exhaust system, bar-end mirrors, and circular LED turn indicators, which enhance the overall appeal of this highly anticipated motorcycle.
Hero Mavrick 440: Price
The forthcoming Hero Mavrick 440 is expected to create waves in the motorcycle market as a more affordable substitute for the Harley-Davidson X440. The Harley-Davidson X440 Denim starts at 2.40 lakh (ex-showroom) for the base model, with the Vivid and S versions going for 2.60 lakh and 2.80 lakh, respectively.
With its impending release, the Hero Mavrick 440 will face stiff competition from the likes of the Triumph Speed 400 and Royal Enfield Classic 350. The Hero Mavrick 440 is an affordable two-wheeler with unique characteristics borrowed from the X440 that attempts to attract riders looking for a good combination of price and flair.
