2014 Hero Hunk Might get Bosch ABS System


Hero MotoCorp is the leading two wheeler manufacturer in India and in the whole world also. Recently, Hero has almost updated its entire range by giving fresh look and minor technical updates for the bikes in its stable. In the performance bike segment, Hero hasn’t updated the Hunk. There are no details of any update coming for the Hunk, but there are rumors that the Hunk might get the ABS made by Bosch in the next update. Bosch is a world famous manufacturer of various automobile products and they are developing an ABS system for smaller bikes.


KTM Duke 390 is one of the fastest bikes in the country and it comes with the Bosch ABS system, which is not much expensive. KTM is offering the ABS system as standard in the Duke. 150 cc segment bikes are usually used for commuting and they spend most of their time in city condition. Now Bosch has released a video showcasing the importance of ABS for the smaller bikes in our country. If the disc brakes are not used properly then it can cause accidents, if the bike has ABS it will prevent such accidents.

In the video, it is clearly demonstrated an average user and his duties which shows that ABS must be mandatory for the bikes as it will save your life one day. The government is planning to implement the ABS law in the country. Now coming back to the bike, the Hunk competes in the entry level 150 cc segment and it might be a good move from Hero to add the ABS option. The HX250R is also coming with ABS. So Hero might add the ABS feature for all the products and it will pave a path for the competition to follow on.
