Hero Motocorp has launched its first-ever 125cc scooter -- the Destini 125 -- at a price starting Rs 54,650 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo as the Duet 125, the scooter gets a few visual and performance upgrades over the concept.
In terms of styling, the Destini looks quite premium with chrome accents on the front apron and side panels.
The headlamp is also mounted conventionally on the handlebar with a bikini fairing and the rear view mirrors also sport the same colour as the body.
The Destini is powered by a 125cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine generating 8.7 PS of power and 10.2 Nm of torque.
The scooter also gets 10-inch alloy wheels suspended by a telescopic front fork and a monoshock at the back.
It also gets tubeless tyres and drum brakes fitted with combined braking system (CBS) as standard. The standard CBS will help the bike comply with the upcoming safety norms.
The Destini 125 will be Hero's first scooter to feature its patented i3S (idle start stop system).
Available on the Splendor and Passion series, this technology switches off the engine if the bike is idling for longer than 5 seconds.
The scooter is quite rich in terms of features. A semi-digital instrument console sports features like side-stand indicator and service indicator.
It also features an external fuel filler cap and a pass light switch. As an optional extra, you could also avail a mobile charger as well as a boot lamp.
The Hero Destini 125 is available in two trims -- the LX priced at Rs 54,650 and the VX priced at Rs 57,500.Positioned as a family scooter, it will compete with the likes of the Honda Activa 125, and the Suzuki Access 125.
