According to reports, the new Hero bike will target a much younger audience than the H-D X440. Sources have indicated that the Hero 440 will have its own distinct sound and more features than the H-D X440

The Hero bike based on the Harley X440 might have a different cubic capacity to further emphasize the difference between the two bikes. It will be sold from the same dealer network as the H-D X440. The X440 will be sold out of the existing Harley dealership but also through a number of premium Hero dealers that will be coming up over the next few months.

Hero aims to made the bike available in a wide dealer network nationwide in a short period. The idea is also for the bike to be serviceable across the country. The service and spare parts will cost around the same range as Royal Enfield as it will be locally made.
