With most of the bikes/scooter focussed for the non-premium market, Hero delivers a satisfying product at a budget price. Recently Hero announced multiple new models to the Indian market including HX250R, RNT, LEAP, and DASH.
Of all these, RNT gained a lot of attention for its unique design and its applications that are apt for the Indians mostly to the working people.

The front features headlights with an additional powerful LED light that doubles as a portable flash light. The scooter is interestingly two-wheel drive that makes it easy to control even off-road.
It is a rolling powerhouse that houses a powerful generator that can power various equipment and devices even in remote areas. Surprisingly, the scooter can be made front wheel drive powered by electricity for city riding.
Pricing & Release
All that features costs heavily for customers. The scooter’s price is expected to be nearly 80,000 INR. This price range will be an obstacle for most people who are looking to increase their productivity by replacing their old vehicles with RNT.
But with these many features, it is fairly reasonable and the price can be dropped a little considering it is using cheaper fuel diesel for powering the scooter mainly.
The release date of this model is not yet confirmed and it may make its appearance in Indian markets later this year.
