The ZIR will mark Hero MotoCorp's entry into the more powerful 150 cc scooter segment. The closest competitor of the ZIR 150 will be the Honda PCX 150, which is on sale in European and other Asian markets but is yet to make an appearance in India. The Hero ZIR will be a sporty maxi-scooter which will be offered in two variants - flat floorboard and European style step-through. It will feature a 157 cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine delivering 13.8 bhp and 12.7 Nm of power and torque respectively. Features like European styled step seat, dual projector headlamps with daytime running lights, front protection screen, bright LED blinkers and tail lamp etc. will give it a very futuristic look. That said, details on the launch of the Zir aren't clear at the moment. We do hope Hero is seriously considering bringing the fiesty 150 cc model to take on the offerings from Piaggio.
