Hero Duet 125 CC i3S and Hero Maestro Edge 125 i3S

Hero Motocorp has unveiled two new 125 CC Scooters at the Auto Expo 2018- the Hero Maestro Edge 125 i3S and the Hero Duet 125 CC i3S. Both these scooters use same engines which are single cylinder petrol engined with automatic transmission and deliver a peak power of 8.7 BHP of peak power and peak torque of 10.2 Nm. Both these scooters offer the automatic idle-stop system called the i3S which automatically turns off the engine when the vehicle is at a stop position whether in traffic or at a red signal. The engine comes back on when the accelerator is used by the rider and hence it saves fuel by reducing the idle time of the engine.
In terms of design, the Hero Duet 125 i3S looks more attractive and modern compared to the ongoing model. Aesthetically, you get silver accents and large turn indicators on the front. The headlamp is large and clear in design. There is also visible i3S branding on the front of the scooter.
Seat texture is also dual tone and seat size look moderate. There are telescopic suspensions on the front and combination brakes arrangement. The front and rear both get drum brakes. The side profile of the scooter looks average while the rear looks attractive. There is also silver colour heat shield on the exhaust pipe along with silver grab rails behind the pillion rider seat.
There are dual tone ascents all around the scooter with body coloured rear view mirrors adding to the visual appeal of the Duet 125 CC.
Price and Availability
 The Hero Duet 125 i3S will be priced between Rs. 53,000 to Rs. 56,000 price bracket and is expected to hit the roads in the calendar year 2018.
Hero has entered the 125cc scooter segment with two new models, the Maestro Edge 125 and the Duet 125. Both scooters are powered by the same 125cc engine, however, the Maestro targets younger buyers with its sporty styling, while the Duet is more suited for an older audience.
Both scooters use the same 125cc motor that makes 8.7hp and 10.2Nm of torque. The scooters are also equipped with i3S (idle-start-stop tech) that, until now, was seen only on Hero motorcycles.

Other features include external fuel filling, digi-analogue instrumentation, a side stand and service indicators. The Maestro is available with an optional front disc brake.
The Duet 125 also gets an external fuel filler, side stand and service indicator and a pass switch. Furthermore, it comes with a boot lamp and mobile charging. Styling-wise, the Duet gets body-coloured rear-view mirrors and a dual-tone seat. The Duet can only be had with drum brakes for now.
