Are you a European rider who’s keen on the looks of the Bullit Hero 125? Do you wish it had just a little more oomph? If so, you’re in luck. Your favorite small-displacement retro bike brand just unveiled a 250cc version of its commuter scrambler with all the modern vintage styling elements you could ask for.
The new Bullit Hero 250 is powered by a four-stroke, 250cc single mated to a six-speed gearbox. It comes with an upside-down fork, a FASTEC swingarm with a spring oil damper, disc brakes front and rear, an 18-inch front wheel, and a 17-inch wheel in the rear.
This isn’t the company’s first foray above 125cc. Back in June, 2020, Bullit unveiled its first-ever 250 in the form of the V-Bob 250. Boasting power cruiser looks without the added hassle of all that, you know, power, it also marked Bullit’s first foray into tiny V-twin territory. The Hero 250 is the company’s first single in that displacement range.
This stylish little retro scrambler throws a little bit of all kinds of nostalgic design cues into a blender, then spits them back out in the form of a pleasing, scrappy commuter bike shape. It doesn’t want to be a performance machine; it just wants to be the thing that puts a small smile on your face every day as you go about your daily business.
