Hero MotoCorp’s pavilion at the EICMA 2023 trade show in Milan had interesting two-wheelers ranging from scooters to concepts.

Looking at the concept bike, the exposed trellis frame and the engine seem to have been borrowed from the new Karizma XMR. The bike features edgy body panels with a tall seat and the tail section modified to perform stunts. The concept bike is suspended by USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear and rides on 17-inch wheels with slick tyres. According to Hero, the Concept 2.5R XTunt is designed to carve through corners with pinpoint precision, offering a ride that thrills and inspires confidence. The lightweight construction will help in maneuvering through tight spaces and bustling city streets with ease.

While not much has been disclosed about the powertrain, looking at the crankcase covers it’s safe to assume it to be the same 210 cc liquid-cooled unit from the Karizma XMR. Going by the concept bike’s name, expect it to have a displacement of around 250 cc, thus producing more power and torque.
