After the success of the company’s first 125 cc scooter – the Hero Destini, Hero MotoCorp has introduced its second 125 cc scooter, the Hero Maestro Edge 125. The Maestro Edge 125 looks more or less similar to the Maestro Edge 110, but it’s got more performance, and has slight cosmetic changes over the 110 cc scooter. The overall design of the Maestro Edge 125 is familiar with edgy design and angular lines seen on its smaller sibling, but there are subtle differences. New colours, with both glossy and matte colours are available in a total of six shades. The new Hero Maestro Edge 125 is available in both fuel-injected and carburetted variants, and the glossy paint scheme with contrast colours for the interior panels has been reserved for the top-end fuel-injected variant, while the matte colour schemes are reserved for the carburetted variant. The carburetted variant is also available in both drum and disc brake variants, but the fuel-injected variant is only available with a front disc brake.
The Hero Maestro Edge 125 is powered by a 124.6 cc, single-cylinder engine. On the carburetted variant, the engine puts out 8.7 bhp at 6750 rpm and 10.2 Nm of peak torque at 5000 rpm. The fuel-injected variant however makes slightly more power, putting out 9.1 bhp at 7000 rpm, with the same peak torque of 10.2 Nm kicking in at 5000 rpm. The carburetted variant however has a slightly bigger 5.5 litre fuel tank, while the fuel-injected variant has a 5-litre fuel tank. Fuel economy for the carburetted variant is rated at 53.1 kmpl, while the fuel-injected variant’s fuel economy figure is rated at 51 kmpl. The Hero Maestro Edge 125 (carb) with drum brakes is priced at Rs. 58,500 (ex-showroom), while the carburetted variant with disc brakes is priced at Rs. 60,000 (ex-showroom). The fuel-injected variant is priced at Rs. 62,700 (ex-showroom).
