The Hero Hunk is a 150 cc motorcycle launched by Hero Honda in October 2007. It is offered in two variants, kick-start and self-start.[1] The new 2011 model is offered with either rear disc brake, or rear drum brake.

Comfort and handling[edit]

The Hunk has a stepped seat and rear-set foot pegs that give the rider a sporty stance without sacrificing rider comfort. The vibrations are well controlled.[2] The bike also features gas-charged adjustable rear shock absorbers and rear tire with a tuff-up tube.

Performance and fuel economy[edit]

The Hunk has the 149 cc engine used in Honda Unicorn and Hero Honda CBZ X-treme,[3] with Advanced Tumble-Flow induction Technology (ATFT) which the company claims will reduce emissions and fuel consumption.[4] The new upgraded Hunk comes with semi-digital dashboard, ridged exhaust cover with front and rear disc brakes, tubeless tires and contoured visor. After recent cosmetic changes, the bike still retains its single-cylinder, air-cooled 149.2 cc engine.

Visuals[edit]

Hunk features its own unique racing bull insignia on either side edges of the fuel tank.
