The Hero RNT: The Diesel Jeep of Scooters

Here in scooters are primarily for fun. we’re aware of their capabilities as utilitarian transportation, but hardly the focus. Perhaps will change here in the future.

Indian scooter Hero has created a concept with a utility that be ignored.

The Hero RNT concept has a list of unconventional features, the sum of which is a scooter that remarkably grounded in reality. Any one of the things would be welcome on any two-wheeler.

• 150cc turbo diesel

• An LED headlight you can remove and use as flashlight

• An alternator that lets the function as an electrical generator

• A hub electric motor and battery — turning the RNT into a hybrid 2WD

• Multiple cargo platforms, extensions and racks to haul

Even though the RNT is just a vehicle at this point, the of outlandishness gives us hope Hero actually intends to it — at least if they can imagine a for it. As a concept, the RNT is extremely clever simply being ridiculous. For that 2WD hybrid system riders to shut down the engine and ride short just on the electric hub drive.

As look for more and more and utility in a more crowded landscape, something like the RNT be just the ticket.

This isn’t Hero’s hybrid scooter either. The RNT is second hybrid scooter in recent years. The Leap, serial hybrid scooter was shown alongside the RNT in its pre-production form. Yet hybrid scooters are of a head-scratcher for us.

Given that small-displacement gas scooters already get gas mileage, extending that economy by marginal amounts the added weight and complexity of a electric system seems its deep into the curve of returns. That seems more the case when we talking about a diesel like on the RNT. Piaggio and failed to make hybrid more mainstream with hybrid version of the MP3.

There are many (myself who argue that hybrid of all stripes are mostly marketing, how much efficiency is now possible diesel engines. Hybrid has a buzzword — a shorthand for efficiency and even though hybrid often don’t really on either.

That said, I have to Hero for pushing the envelope The RNT is a remarkable reimagining of what a can be. They’ve envisioned something rugged and pragmatic and you certainly see that every day. has partnered with EBR (Eric Racing) for US distribution and development.

not sure what that network will look yet, but that collaboration is as as this RNT concept. Keep an eye on two, folks. They’re up to things.
