Hero unveils its new scooter ZIR with a 157cc, 14PS engine
The second ZIR featured a more upright screen mounted to the handlebar for a more conventional look and arguably, the most conservative and less sporty design.But the rest of the design details were similar, from the massive front apron featuring, evidently, only a giant NACA-style duct that leads to a fan mounted in front of the radiator. The scooter looks neat overall but we can't help but think that it could have looked neater and simpler though it is still a concept so some refining work is sure to be done before it goes on commercial sale. The ZIR is set for sale in India in one or both versions while the 'Euro' version is going to be exported from India.Hero says the ZIR is capable of over 110kmph and has hydraulic discs front and rear as well as a 9-litre tank to ensure its dynamic ability and range are good. Both bikes wear projector lamps, daytime running lamps, LED indicators, alloy wheels, all-digital instruments and in a neat touch, the calipers are painted to match the body colour.
