    In the latest round of motorcycle spy pics that have surfaced on the internet, the 2023 Hero Hunk has been spotted testing. The interesting bit is that unlike other test mules that are usually wrapped in camouflage tape/colour to hide their identities and bodywork, the test Hero Hunk is sans any. 

    2023 Hero Hunk: details

    Close inspection of the test bike suggests that the 2023 Hunk is nothing but a rebadged Hero Xtreme 200R, which, by the way, was discontinued a couple of years ago. The clear ‘Hunk’ badge on the tank extensions as well as the paint graphics seem to be the only visual differentiator between this bike and the Xtreme 200R.

    Whether it is the headlight cowl, fuel tank, tail section or even the wheels, they appear to be the same as on the Xtreme 200R.

    Similarly, the chassis and suspension components are also likely to be the same as the Xtreme 200R. What is a grey area, however, is details about the engine. Since the picture is quite grainy, it is difficult to decipher whether it is powered by the Xtreme 200’s engine or the Xtreme 160R’s engine. If it is the latter, chances are that Hero may pit the 2023 Hunk against the ageing Honda Unicorn, the Yamaha FZ and the newly launched Bajaj Pulsar P150.

    Yes, it could give new life to a slow-selling car



    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
