Hero has added to its feature-rich XTEC line-up with the launch of the Destini 125 XTEC. This version of the 125cc scooter is priced at Rs 79,990 (ex-showroom, Delhi), and gains an LED headlight and Bluetooth connectivity over its standard counterparts. Despite the addition of connectivity features, the scooter continues to use a semi-digital instrument cluster that looks very similar to the regular version.
While the standard Destini 125 gets LED position lamps and a halogen headlight, this XTEC variant gets LED technology for both. The design of the rear grab rail is also different on the XTEC, and it gets a pillion backrest as standard, which the lower variants miss out on.
Despite the addition of these extra features, the Destini does not receive a front disc brake, and continues with drum brakes at both ends. There are no changes to the engine either, with the XTEC variant using the same 9.1hp, 10.4Nm, 124.6cc single-cylinder engine as the more affordable variants.
The Destini XTEC joins the Glamour XTEC and Pleasure Plus XTEC in receiving Bluetooth connectivity, which is also featured on the Xtreme 200S and Xpulse models.
Do you think a Rs 4,000 premium is fair to pay for the features offered? Let us know in the comments below.
