Hero collector's edition motorcycle Centennial is launched in India

Limited to only 100 units

Hero MotoCorp is marking the 101st birth anniversary of its founder, Chairman Brijmohan Lal Munjal, with a special collector’s edition bike called the Centennial. This exclusive model resembles a heavily revamped Karizma. Only 100 units will be produced, and each one will be auctioned off.

Design-wise, the Hero Centennial features a shorter fairing with exposed carbon fibre elements. Taking inspiration from larger sports machines, it features a pair of winglets on each side of the fairing. The side view mirrors have been located to the handlebar ends, which Hero claims is made from a Hydro Formed Single Tube. The handlebar, engine casing, and frame all sport a striking red colour, adding to its bold aesthetic.

The motorcycle weighs in at 158 kg, a feat achieved through the extensive use of carbon fibre on the body panels and milled aluminium for the swingarm, as per the brand. Hero MotoCorp has not yet released the power and torque figures to the public, keeping enthusiasts waiting for more deets.

The Hero Centennial Collector’s Edition comes equipped with a high-performance exhaust from Akrapovic, crafted from carbon fibre and titanium for a distinctive sound. Hero also fitted the Centennial with Wilbers gas-charged, fully adjustable mono-shock at the rear and 43mm upside-down telescopic forks at the front with damping adjustments. Adding to its exclusivity, special edition numbered badging in milled aluminium on both side covers underscores the bike's attention to detail and appeal.
