If you’re a bike that’s been bestowed the name "Hunk," you better live up to it...and then some.

Fortunately, the Hero Honda Hunk doesn’t have to worry about the proverbial backlash attached to its name. That’s because the bike has been a popular seller in the Indian market due to its dashing combination of good looks and performance know-how.

For the 2012 model, the overall look of the bike remains largely unchanged, although the addition of a digital instrument cluster is a refreshing bonus. The flared fenders and tubeless tires are also attractive to the eye, while the contoured visor gives it a sexy look. Finally, the Hunk also comes with an LED tail light, a ridged muffler cover, and front and rear disc brakes.

At the heart of the Hunk, you’ll find a 150cc air-cooled, four-stroke, single cylinder engine that produces a tidy 14 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and 12.8 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.

All told, the Hero Honda Hunk is a bike that has been designed to be most suited for youngsters, especially college students. In addition, the bike claims to have a ’big bike feel,’ which is the most popular and sought after kind of bike in the Indian market.
