Ashwin Ram

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.

Powered by a new 111 cc engine.

The product brochure of the soon-to-launch Hero Duet has been leaked online, courtesy of MotorBeam, which reveals its technical specifications and features. The 110 cc scooter is set for market debut on 29 September.
