At the Hero World 2024, Hero MotoCorp finally revealed the much-awaited Mavrick 440. With an engine size of 440cc, the Hero Mavrick 440 is the company’s largest bike. While it draws inspiration from the Harley-Davidson X440, it also tries to have a unique appearance.
The Hero Mavrick 440 is a roadster-style motorbike with a neo-retro aesthetic that has an aggressive and athletic look. Its overall strong design is enhanced by a sculpted metal tank with robust tank extensions, metal fenders, and a brushed metal finish on the side panels (exclusive to the top-end edition). Wide handlebars and a roomy, contoured single-piece seat with 60mm of foam padding are features of the Mavrick 440 that contribute to a pleasant riding position. It has a more angular exhaust than the X440, and we think it looks better. A long number plate holder with built-in indicators complements the slightly stumpy tail portion at the back.
Here are the key highlights of the Hero Mavrick 440
- Air-/oil-cooled 440cc SOHC single-cylinder engine
- 27.3PS at 6000rpm (same as X440) and 36Nm at 4000rpm (2Nm less than the X440)

There will be three different Mavrick 440 models available. The mid-spec model, available in Celestial Blue or Fearless Red, has alloy wheels and a dual-tone paint job, while the entry model, in Arctic White, has spoked wheels. However, the top-of-the-line model comes with connection as standard, machined alloy wheels, machined engine fins, and Phantom Black and Enigma Black color schemes.
Hero has not yet released the bike’s price, but we anticipate that the base model will cost about Rs 2 lakh (ex-showroom). Hero said that delivery of the Mavrick 440 will begin in April 2024, and reservations will open in February, immediately as pricing are revealed.
The Royal Enfield Classic 350, Honda H’ness CB 350, Jawa 42, and Yezdi Roadster are the rivals of the Mavrick 440. Stronger neo-retro options such as the Honda CB300R or Triumph Speed 400 can also be taken into consideration as substitutes.
