The Maestro Edge 125 will be available in both carburetted and fuel injected variant and will target mostly young buyers
Hero Motocorp will launch their second 125cc offering the Maestro Edge 125 on 13th May 2019. The scooter was already showcased in front of the public at the 2018 Auto Expo alongside the Duet 125. The Duet 125 was later rebranded and launched as the Destini 125. That said, here are the 5 quick points that you should know about the upcoming Hero Maestro Edge 125.
The Hero Maestro Edge 125 will take its sharp and sporty styling cues from the Maestro 110cc sibling. The scooter showcased at the Auto Expo featured a halogen headlamp however, we believe that the production variant will most probably feature an all LED headlamp unit. It will also get a semi-digital and analogue speedometer.
The digital display will provide some vital information to the rider including trip meter, fuel gauge, odometer, etc. The scooter will be equipped with a comfortable seat and an LED taillamp at the rear.
The soon to be launched Maestro Edge 125 will be powered by the same 125cc engine that also powers the Destini 125 as well. The 125cc engine makes about 8.7hp of peak power and 10.2Nm of peak torque on the Destini 125. However, Hero will add fuel injection technology and retune the engine for improved power and torque output figures. The scooter will also feature Hero’s Start-Stop system (Hero i3S) technology as well.
Like we already mentioned above the Hero Maestro Edge 125 will get an external fuel filler cap, digi-analogue instrumentation, full LED headlamp, and taillamp, side stands indicator warning, alloy wheels shod with tubeless tyres, etc.
4. Suspension and brakes
The scooter will be fitted with telescopic forks up front and a monoshock unit at the rear. It will rely on a 130 mm drum brakes at both ends to bring it to a halt however, Hero will also add an optional front disc brake as well with the scooter.
5. Price and competition
Expect the upcoming 125cc scooter from Hero Motocorp to be priced around Rs 60,000 (Ex-Showroom) when it is finally launched in India. The Hero Maestro Edge 125 will rival directly against the likes of the Suzuki Access 125 and Honda Activa 125.
