    Hero Motocorp has updated a majority of its sub-125cc lineup with its version of a combined braking system called IBS (Integrated Braking System). The safety feature will be made mandatory on all two wheelers below 125cc from April 1, 2019. The update comes at a price hike varying between Rs 500 and Rs 2000, depending on the bike.

    The IBS feature enables distribution of brake action between the front and rear brake when the rear brake is applied. The bikes that have received the update are the kick- and self-start variants of the HF Deluxe that are now priced at Rs 40,400 and Rs 48,175, respectively, a Rs 500 hike over their non-IBS variants. The bike is also available in an i3S variant (Hero’s version of the auto start/stop technology) and it, too, has received the IBS update. The HF Deluxe i3S IBS sees a similar price hike of Rs 500 and is now priced at Rs 49,375.

    The Splendor Plus series sees a hike of Rs 650, with the Self Start IBS variant costing Rs 52,860 and the i3S equipped variant with IBS costing Rs 54,150. Other bikes now equipped with IBS include the Passion Pro Drum Brake that costs Rs 54,475 and the Passion X Pro Drum Brake sporting a price tag of Rs 56,100. The Glamour Programmed FI sees the largest hike of Rs 2,000 with IBS version costing Rs 68,900.

    The HF Deluxe Eco, Passion Pro 110, Passion X Pro Disc variant, Splendor iSmart Plus and carbureted variants of the Glamour are yet to receive the update. With the April 1 deadline right around the corner, Hero is likely to update the remaining models soon.
