The campaign invites customers and enthusiasts to participate and attempt to cover the distance of 25,000 kilometers in 60 days on the Hero Hunter motorcycle. The first two riders, in each state, to achieve this milestone will receive four new Hero Hunter motorcycles and wear the ‘Super Oga’ crown.
The campaign will be hosted in five states of Nigeria including Oyo, Ondo, Ekiti, Kwara and Gombe with 20 contestants per state.

The Hero Hunter
The Hunter comes with a four-stroke, OHC, Air Cooled engine – delivering a remarkable power output of 7.4 BHP @ 8000 RPM and max torque 7.95 NM @ 4500 RPM.
The Hunter’s engine is equipped with a Trochoid-type crankshaft-driven oil pump which ensures a constant oil flow rate of 3.14 Litres/minute. The internal oil galleries are designed to secure and protect oil flow without any hindrance. The area near the combustion chamber has less height difference to ensure high oil flow and optimum cooling. This advanced oil circulation technology ensures better cooling and lubrication of the engine.
The Hunter has three filter elements to avoid dust entry into the combustion chamber leading to higher engine life. The first is the air deflector ensuring clean air entry, whilst the second and third are the primary and secondary filters made from Polyurethane foam that absorb finer dust particles ensuring only clean air enters the carburetor.
The new Hunter features an extra-long comfortable seat, strong and long rear carrier, strong double-cradle frame, USB port for on the go charging, bigger 18” wheels for added comfort, step adjustable rear suspension for a smoother ride, smooth all down gear shift pattern, and a bigger footrest for comfortable sitting.
Providing utmost safety, the motorcycle features a Metallic Bash Plate protecting the engine on rough roads, a Combi Lock to protect the vehicle from theft and Tyre Pressure Monitoring indicator (accessory) to prevent deflation & puncture.
The Hunter comes in three attractive and stylish colors – Candy Blazing Red, Vibrant Blue
