Hero Duet – In Images
Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
To be launched in a few weeks.
The all-new Hero Duet has been unveiled today ahead of the market launch during Diwali.
Based on the company’s all-new self-developed platform, the Hero Duet has a unisex appeal. It has a completely new styling characterised by a ‘V’ chrome trim on the front apron. The headlamp is mounted on the handlebar which is flanked by clear lens turn indicators.
The wing mirrors have inserts painted in body colour, and the grab rail is given a contrast colour treatment, in black. While the Maestro Edge, also showcased today, benefits from black alloy wheels, the Duet is given just the traditional steel rims. The shell of Duet is made of metal that’s given a 3D logo, silver accents and small slots.
The 6 colour options for the Hero Duet include Panther Black Metallic, Grace Grey Metallic, Matt Vernier Grey, Pearl Silver White, Nature Green Metallic, and Candy Blazing Red.
The Duet is a brand new scooter not only in terms of platform, but also by its powertrain. It features a new 111 cc engine producing a maximum power of 8.43 PS at 8,000 rpm and peak torque of 8.3 at 6,500 rpm, combined to a CVT.
