Recently, Hero Motocorp wrapped of its new 110cc scooter christened Maestro at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo along with two new 110cc bikes, Passion XPro and 125cc Ignitor. The company intends to break in through the gearless scooter market with the launch of Maestro in March. What remains to be seen is Maestro’s journey in a segment dominated by Honda’s Activa and Dio, which have at least 2 months waiting period.
The new scooter Maestro comes with with V-matic engine for high performance. Hero Maestro has a four-stroke air cooled with 110cc engine. Hero Maestro has advanced microprocessor ignition with TCIS that gives excellent performance. Maestro has the ability to provide power upto 8 bhp with a torque of 8.5 Nm.
Hero Maestro has a variomatic drive that allows optimum power and smooth acceleration. Hero Maestro is fitted with digital analog meter with service indicator, which acts a service reminder to the driver. The safety of the vehicle is given the top priority, and the vehicle is fitted with the combi-break system.
The tyres of the vehicle have also given a special thought and the vehicle is fitted with tuff tubes for better road grip. Maestro is matted with anti-slip rubber mat and pillion foot peg adds to the additional safety features of this scooter. Maestro has a kerb weight of 108 kilograms.
While the specifications mirror that of Honda Activa, what would give Maestro an edge is perhaps its pricing. Maestro is expected to have a price tag between Rs. 45,000 and 55,000. That is, however, a market speculation.
