New Hero Hunk 2016 Prices Revealed, Launching Soon

New Hero Hunk 2016

New Hero Hunk 2016 facelift receives minor graphical changes, while the major update comes in the form of a more powerful engine.

New Hero Hunk 2016 facelift will soon be launched in India, as the home-grown bikemaker has uploaded the images and technical specifications of the motorcycle on its official website. The facelifted model receives minor cosmetic updates, while the major change comes in the form of a more powerful engine. The new Hero Hunk 2016 will face competition from bikes like Bajaj Pulsar 150NS, Honda Unicorn 160 and Yamaha FZS.

Power for the 2016 Hero Hunk facelift will come from a 149.2cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that equipped with an AMI (advanced microprocessor ignition system), an overhead camshaft and a new viscous air filter. It’s the same powertrain that does duty to the Hero Xtreme Sports. This gasoline motor is coupled with a 5-speed transmission that helps the bike produce 15.6bhp of power at 8,500rpm and 13.50Nm at 7,000rpm.

Instead of the red shade, the Hero Hunk 2016 now gets a black paint scheme for body parts like the damper springs and spark plug cover. The suspension components, too, are smeared in black theme including the heat shield on the silencer, fork and rear shocks and alloy wheels. Hero badge in red has been embossed on the crankcase while the ‘ATFT’ lettering on the fuse box seems identical to the current model.

The new Hero Hunk 2016 will be made available in six color options – Panther Black, Bold Brown, Force Silver, Ebony Grey, Blazing Red and Matte Black. The bike also gets bigger fairing and revised front mudguard, while the headlight, tail-lamp and handlebar remain unchanged. There is a completely revised instrument cluster that now features a central analog tachometer, fuel gauge and a side stand warning. The speedometer is a digital unit and the entire readout area has been outlined by a shiny strip of chrome.
