Hero unveiled the new Duet 125 in the Auto Expo earlier this year. Recently in an official event, Hero Motocorp revealed it and christened it as Hero Destini 125.
Hero Destini belongs to the premium segment in Hero’s line-up. This scooter will take on the likes of the new Honda Activa 125, Suzuki Access 125, Suzuki Burgman 125, Honda Grazia 125 and other new 125cc scooters in the market. With expected prices to be around INR 52,000 Hero might have a strong case with Destini 125.
Hero has added all the bells and whistles to the Destini 125. This scooter comes equipped with Hero’s i3s – Idle Start Stop System offering better fuel efficiency. It is seen with a semi digital instrument cluster, integrated braking system, and tubeless tires. It also comes with combi brake system but lacks disk brakes.
The Destini 125 runs on a 125cc, single cylinder, air cooled motor which produces 8.7 bhp power (at 6750RPM) and 10.2 Nm torque (at 5000RPM). It comes mated to a CVT transmission system. The scooter sits on 10 inch wheels.
The Destini 125 has a more traditional design compared to newer scooters like the Suzuki Burgman and the TVS Ntorq. It has telescopic forks at the front and also comes with an external fuel cap. Hero will offer the Destini 125 in four color schemes, Noble Red, Chestnut Bronze, Panther Black, and Pearl Silver White.
Hero launched another scooter at the same event, the Hero Maestro Edge 125. The Maestro Edge is the sportier scooter of the two. It is shown with sporty accents on its body with the fiber body panels and will be offered in color options of Matte Techno Blue, Matte Red, Matte Brown and Matte Vernier Grey. But the Maestro Edge shares the same with the Destini 125. The other difference is that Maestro Edge 125 gets bigger 12 inch wheels at the front, optional disc brakes and remote key opening.
