The Hero Duet along with the Maestro Edge carry Hero’s first indigenously developed engine.
The 2017 Hero Duet BSIV has started reaching dealerships, sporting new graphics. New colour options may also be included.
The heart of the scooter remains the same 110.9 cc air-cooled, single cylinder OHC mill which is shared with the updated Maestro Edge. In the 2017 Maestro Edge, the engine is capable of producing 8 bhp of maximum power at 7,500 rpm and 8.7 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 rpm.
The features list includes a metal body, external fuel filling lid, mobile charging port with boot light, tubeless tyres and integrated braking system. The instrumentation is a mix of digital and analogue readouts.
The Hero Duet, like most Hero two-wheelers, also get a side stand indicator. The scooter also gets Auto Headlamp On (AHO) which is confirmed by the lack of headlamp on-off toggle switch on the right handlebar.
The Hero Duet’s BSIII version carries a price tag of INR 48,130 for the LX trim and INR 49,780 for the VX variant. A slight price bump for the BSIV version is on cards.
