Hero Mavrick 440 review: A delightful deal

 The new Hero Mavrick 440 is an interesting mix of the familiar and the unknown. On the one hand, it shares quite a lot with the Harley-Davidson X440 that it’s based on, but at the same time, it also represents uncharted territory for Hero – the company’s most premium, largest displacement motorcycle yet.

Hero Mavrick 440: engine and performance

Starting with the familiar, you’ve got the same air- and oil-cooled 440cc single-cylinder engine as on the Harley, which means you get a very similar riding experience too. There’s a lovely wide spread of torque all across the rev band, and you’ll really enjoy picking it up at low rpms and surfing the wave all the way into the top reaches of the tachometer.
