Hero MotoCorp is all set to launch its new 125 cc scooter, the Hero Destini 125, tomorrow, on October 22, in India. First revealed to us early this yr in February, on the Auto Expo 2018 because the Duet 125, the brand new Destini 125 is the primary 125 cc mannequin to affix the corporate scooter line-up and can tackle the likes of the TVS NTorq 125, Honda Grazia, and the Suzuki Burgman Avenue 125. There’s already a good bit that’s identified in regards to the upcoming Hero Destini 125, aside from the pricing, which will probably be revealed solely on the time of the launch.
We do have some expectations close to the pricing of the brand new Hero Destini 125. So, contemplating the common 110 cc Duet tops out at Rs. 49,900 (ex-showroom, Delhi), in our opinion, the brand new Destini 124 will probably be priced within the vary of Rs. 52,000 to Rs. 55,000 (ex-showroom). Hero is understood to supply a number of variants for its scooters primarily based on metal wheels vs alloy wheels and drum brakes vs disc brakes, and we will count on an analogous variant classification for the Destini 125 as effectively.
Hero Destini 125 will probably be powered by a 125 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine
When it comes to options, the Hero Destini 125 will embrace an elective entrance disc brake, Built-in Braking System (IBS), aspect stand indicator, service reminder, cross swap, exterior gas filling and extra. The Destini 125 has been utterly developed in-house on the firm’s Centre of Innovation and Expertise (CIT) in Jaipur.
Powertrain smart, the brand new Hero Destini 125 will probably be powered by a 125 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, which is actually a bored out model of the 110 cc mill frim the Duet 110. The engine is more likely to supply eight.7 bhp at 6750 rpm and 10.2 Nm of peak torque accessible at 5000 rpm, and has been tweaked to supply higher low-end energy for increased city usability. Maximising gas effectivity, the Destini 125 would be the first Hero scooter to get idle-start-stop-system (i3S system).
