Hero ZIR 150cc scooter euro version

On the second day of the Auto Expo 2014, Hero MotoCorp showcased its new scooters, top among which was the Hero ZIR. The Hero ZIR once launched will be the first 150cc automatic scooter in India. Powered by a 157 cc engine the ZIR produces a peak power of 14 HP @ 8,500 RPM and 12.7 Nm of torque @ 7000 RPM, figures that are unheard of for scooters in India.

ZIR range comes in two variants, the flat floorboard model and a European style step thru model. Its Forced Dynamic Cooling Air System maintains an apt temperature of the liquid coolant during long high speed rides. The Integrated hydraulic Braking System combined with Hydraulic disc brakes in the front and the rear ensures enhanced control while riding. The large fuel tank capacity of 9 litres ensures a smooth and uninterrupted ride for long distance commuting. The ZIR touches a claimed top speed of over 110 kmph. The overall design makes a distinctly bold style statement with its European-styled step seat, sporty front protection screen, dual projector lamps with day running lights, flower type disc plates, bright LED winkers and tail lamp, integrated pillion handle and a combo of digital – analog console. What adds to the great utility is a socket for mobile phone charging and EFI system will communicate with smart phone for all Engine / Riding information through Ride-Stat app. Apart from the above mentioned features, the European style step thru variant includes cowl-mounted console and large protection summer screen that characterize its unique style. Expect the ZIR to make it to showrooms mid 2015.
