The Hero HF Deluxe i3S has started reaching dealerships. The Hero HF Delux 2017 model was quietly introduced on the company website in February 2017.
Powering the Hero HF Deluxe 2017 model is a 97.2 cc air-cooled single-cylinder mill coupled to a 4-speed gearbox. The engine is capable of producing 8.36 PS of maximum power at 8,000 rpm and 8.05 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 rpm.
The i3S system is the company’s patented start-stop system which shuts down the engine when the rider pauses for a few seconds, like at a traffic signal. The 2017 Hero HF Deluxe BSIV gets drum brakes all around. The fuel tank can store 9.5-litre and the bike tips the scales at 107 kg (wet) for the kick start variant and 110 kg for the self-start model.
The Hero HF Deluxe i3S measures 1,965 mm in length, 720 mm width and 1,045 mm in height. The wheelbase measures 1,235 mm.
Prices for the Hero HF Deluxe 2017 model have still not been revealed and will be more expensive than the non-i3S version which begins at INR 42,630 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
