News by Team Drivio | Jan 19, 2024

Hero MotoCorp has recently revealed new details about their upcoming 440cc motorcycle, the Hero Mavrick, ahead of its January 23 launch.

  • Teased exhaust note and instrument console of new model
  • Gave glimpse of LED lighting and silhouette sketch
  • Launching soon to take on 350cc retro-classic motorcycles

Hero MotoCorp has now disclosed some more details for its Hero Mavrick motorcycle. The powerful new 440cc bike will see an official launch on January 23. It will take on retro-modern contestants such as Honda CB350, Royal Enfield Classic 350, Kawasaki Eliminator and others in the segment. 

Hero has confirmed that the Mavrick will be powered by the same 440cc single-cylinder engine as the Harley-Davidson Sportster S. Judging by the exhaust note in the teaser video, we can expect a throaty roar and strong low-end torque that is characteristic of large single-cylinder motors. This will provide brisk acceleration and a muscular power delivery.

Specification & Details (expected)
Engine440cc, single-cylinder
Power27 bhp
Torque38 Nm
Transmission6-speed 
Estimated PriceRs 2 lakh approx. (ex-showroom)

Modern Styling and Features

The teased instrument console of the Mavrick features a negative LCD display with digital speedometer, tachometer, gear position, range, mileage and more. It also gets Bluetooth connectivity for turn-by-turn navigation, call/SMS alerts and other handy features. The LED headlamp is reminiscent of the XPulse 200 but with sleeker DRLs.

Hero also revealed a silhouette sketch showing the bike's design. It sports a sporty cruiser-inspired look with a beefy fuel tank, chunky exhaust and rear-set footpegs. This points to an aggressive street-oriented motorcycle with an upright yet slightly forward leaning riding position. The design is comparable to the Brabus 1300 R.

Pricing and Competition

When launched, the Hero Mavrick will compete directly against retro-classic 350cc models like the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and Honda H’ness CB350. With its powerful modern engine and equipment, Hero will likely position it as a premium offering in the segment, with an expected ex-showroom price around Rs. 2 lakh.

The Mavrick marks Hero MotoCorp's foray into the mid-size motorcycle category. With muscular styling and performance, it aims to appeal to urban riders looking for a powerful street roadster. More details on the specifications, features and pricing will be revealed at the launch event on January 23.
