Leaked images reveal new moniker of upcoming family scooter.
Hero had showcased two new 125cc scooters, called the Maestro Edge 125 and the Duet 125, at the Auto Expo 2018. Now, however, leaked images of what looks to be a presentation slide reveals that the Duet 125 has been rebadged as the Destini 125.
While the Destini 125 (Duet 125) is positioned as a family scooter offering, the Maestro Edge, on the other hand, targets younger buyers with its comparatively sportier styling. Both scooters use a 125cc motor that makes 8.7hp and 10.2Nm of torque. They also come equipped with i3S (idle-start-stop) tech that, until now, was seen only on Hero motorcycles.
The Destini 125 will also feature an external fuel-filler cap, side-stand warning, service indicator and a pass switch. Furthermore, it comes with a boot lamp and mobile charging point. Styling-wise, the scooter gets body-coloured rear-view mirrors and a dual-tone seat.
As for the Maestro Edge, we will believe Hero will keep that moniker as it is a strong brand for them. Expect more details about the two upcoming scooters to emerge in the weeks to come.
