No cosmetic changes for the HF Deluxe Eco.
Following an update for the Hero Passion Pro, India’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer has introduced the 2015 model year Hero HF Deluxe and HF Deluxe Eco.
Like the Passion Pro, both these entry-level motorcycles have been given the updated 97.2 cc engine. On the 2015 model year versions, this air-cooled single-cylinder engine produces 8.36 PS at 8,000 rpm and 8.05 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm, matched to a 4-speed transmission.
On the HF Deluxe, Hero has inducted a new ‘Classy Maroon Metallic’ shade with new body graphics, taking the color palette to five shades. This is not the case on the HF Deluxe Eco which continues to be offered in a single ‘Leaf Green’ shade to highlight its eco characteristics. In comparison to the HF Deluxe, the Eco gets aerodynamic wing mirrors and low-rolling resistance tyres to further increase its fuel economy.
Both motorcycles get telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers up front and a swingarm with a 2-step hydraulic shock absorber at the rear. A 130 mm drum up front and a 110 mm drum at the rear provide for deceleration.
