The Hero Zir 150 scooter will be showcased at the Auto Expo 2016 that will be held in Greater Noida next week. The home-grown bikemaker will also display the Dare 125 scooter, HX250R sports bike and Super Splendor iSmart 125cc at the event. Though all the aforementioned products are important for the company, the Zir, being Hero’s first ever 150cc scooter, is a special product.

For the people in the know, the Zir scooter was first unveiled in 2014 at the Delhi Motor Show. This premium scooter will be made available with two styling packages – the European-style and a flat footboard. It will also come with several segment-first features such as LED daytime running lights, LED turn indicators and projector indicators. Upon its launch in the country, the Hero Zir 150 scooter will take on the Honda PCX 150.

Styling & Features

The Hero Zir 150 scooter looks quite sporty with features like dual projector lamps, LED indicators, daytime running lamps, all-digital instrument cluster, phone charging dock and new alloy wheels. While the European-style variant gets a swept back screen, the standard model comes with a more upright screen mounted on the handlebar. Though, the screen of latter one looks conventional and less sporty compared to the Euro-style model.

The brake callipers are painted to complement the body colour. Its electronic fuel injection can be connected to smartphones to check engine and riding information through an application. Other noteworthy features include multi information display, petal disc brakes, step seat, etc. The overall length, width and height of the vehicle measure 2,085mm, 745mm and 1,385mm respectively. It carries a kerb weight of 139kgs, and offers a fuel take capacity of 9-litres.

    Hello, I am hearing this from last one year, may I know the exact month which you are going to launch this bike. Getting frustrated on the statements and still not sure what is the issue stopping you from launching it.

        Hi Rajkumar

        The Hero ZIR scooter is yet to be launched in the Indian market. It is likely to go on sale in the country in 2017.

      Agree. Indian manufacturers do NOT listen to their consumers let alone do much of marketing, at least in my opinion. Although this may now be changing, they simply produced the cheapest possible product to sell to the masses, not yet learning, that there are niche markets for consumers willing to pay a little more for higher quality and more features….. especially the scooter market. Yamaha Z is a prime example. Although it has a great engine and driving capability, not one damn feature on the bike. Now in the 21 Century you’d think all bikes would come with a phone charger as an accessory. And a long list of other things. But no. And will they ever break away from the 110 engine for heaven’s sake. A couple of fat Indians on a hill and it’s time to walk.

      Hero has been delaying its launch plans for quite a long time. Now their focus is on to bring some new motorcycles, so we don’t think it will come in the first half of 2018.
