The Dawn and Deluxe now get a side stand indicator as standard and the turn indicators feature a clear lens. These are the only updates on the motorcycles.

The powertrain continues to be the same, and the familiar four-stroke, 97.2cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine powers these bikes. The maximum power is rated at 7.8 PS @ 7,500rpm while the peak torque is rated at 8.04 Nm @ 4,500rpm (8.2 Nm in the case of the Dawn). The 4-speed constant mesh gearbox continues to be seen as well.

Hero HF Deluxe Eco

The Deluxe Eco has been introduced as the more economical cousin to the HF-Deluxe. Hero says that the air resistance has been lowered in the Deluxe Eco thanks to the use of stylized air foils and aerodynamic wing mirrors. The Eco also gets low rolling resistance tires to increase its fuel economy. It is powered by a 97.2cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that pushes out 7.8 PS @ 7,500rpm and 8.2 Nm @ 4,500rpm.

An official economy figure has not been quoted yet.
