2018 Hero Destini 125 scooter launched in India at Rs 54,650
Hero MotoCorp has launched the Hero Destini 125 scooter in India at a price of Rs 54,650 (ex-showroom, Delhi) today for the LX trim. The more expensive VX variant is priced at Rs 57,500. The launch of the Destini 125 comes just as the festive season has begun across the country. The Destini features premium styling elements and features to match its positioning as the family-friendly stablemate to the Maestro 125. It is powered by 124.6cc air cooled single cylinder engine which produces 8.7PS and 10.2Nm peak torque. The Destini is the first 125cc scooter from the Hero MotoCorp stable, and will play a key role in the brand's presence in the growing premium scooter space. We will be bringing you a first ride report, so stay tuned.
The Destini 125 engine also features Hero's i3S auto start-stop technology to boost its fuel economy and reduce emissions. To set it apart from the smaller Duet 110, Hero has not only renamed it the Destini 125, but has also added some premium elements including a large chrome panel on the front apron, and smaller chrome accents at the sides. The overall design is simple, with flowy lines.
Hero MotoCorp had showcased the scooter badged the Duet 125 at the 2018 Auto Expo, earlier this year. The babe had since changed to Destini but it retains the features. These include a semi-digital instrument cluster, alert indicators for side-stand, and service due reminder, as well as an external fuel filler cap to aid convenience.
The Destini 125 also comes equipped with a lamp for the underseat storage, mobile charging port as well as a remote key. Being Hero's first 125cc scooter in the country, the Destini 125 will take the fight to all the established and new competitors in the segment including the TVS Ntorq 125, Honda Activa 125, and the Suzuki Access 125.
