Hero Hunk 150R Price in Nepal and Availability
Hero Hunk 150R is available in Nepal for a price of Rs. 2,79,000 and is available across all showrooms of Hero Motors in Nepal. The pricing is relatively affordable compared to modern 150 cc segment bikes. The Hero Hunk 150R has a traditional commuter design.
It would have been better if Hero upgraded the engine to FI, but that would have undoubtedly increased the price up a bit. Although ABS totally defines the modern bike plus the safety feature is certainly beneficial.
Hero Hunk 150R will face good competition with the likes of Honda Unicord CB 160, Bajaj Pulsar 150 TD, and even the TVS Apache RTR 160 2V.
