Hero Maestro review

The muscular Maestro, which will be sold alongside the Pleasure, is the second scooter from the stable of Hero MotoCorp. But can Hero find another bestseller in the Maestro?

Design & Engineering

The Hero Maestro’s appearance includes a well thought-out front apron, mudguard and vast side panels, all showing conservative lines. The headlamp works well, and adding some style are the dual tone rear-view mirrors, which work well but are cumbersome to adjust. A modern touch on the latest Hero is an LCD-equipped multi-pod instruments bay, with an analogue speedometer that highlights the ‘economy’ riding zone between 30kph to 50kph. The instruments also get a trip meter along with the standard odometer. The soft palm grips, standard quality switch gear and brake levers feel good, while the flimsy feeling brake-lock clamp is painful to operate. A shuttered ignition-key system is another useful safety feature on the Maestro. Utility space comes in the form of an ample lockable bay under the seat. The scooter’s broad warning light cluster and large grab-bar gives a sense of masculinity. The Hero Maestro’s fit-and-finish quality is at par with its rivals.
