  • Hero Destini 125 launched in India starting from INR 54,650 Ex-showroom

    Hero has stepped into the 125cc scooter segment with Hero Destini 125, which was launched today at an event held in Delhi. It’s priced at INR 54, 650 for the LX variant and INR 57,500 for the VX variant (Ex-showroom, Delhi). It becomes the very first scooter to be incorporated with the i3s technology (idle start-stop system).

    The Destini 125 is powered by a 125cc Energy boost engine which produces 8.7 bhp @ 6750 rpm and maximum torque output of 10.2 nm @ 5000 rpm. This 125cc mill is said to make 17% higher torque and 9% higher power than the 110cc engine which does the duty in the Maestro and the Duet.

    Apart from the i3s, Hero has thrown in a couple of more features, to make the Destini more technologically advanced. A digital-analogue speedometer, side stand indicator and service due reminder are some of the features.

    To cater to the practicality quotient which gets associated with the gearless scooters, Destini comes with an external fuel filling cap, remote key opening, mobile charging port and boot light. On the safety front, it gets an integrated braking system.

    During the launch event, Dr. Markus Braunsperger, Chief Technology Officer, Hero MotoCorp said, “We are introducing the new Destini 125cc scoter within just a few weeks of launching a new premium motorcycle – Xtreme 200R. This clearly demonstrates our robust in-house competency in designing and developing prodcuts in the premium segment. The Destini 125 scooter is the only scooter in India today to offer the revolutionary i3S technology, in addition to providing a perfect balance of style and power. We have a strong pipeline of new products in both scooter and motorcycle segments, which we will launch in the coming months.”

    Maro Le Masson – Head of Global Planning, Hero MotoCorp said, “The scooter market is witnessing a shift towards products with higher engine capacity. The 125cc segment in particular has been expanding at a rapid pace, witnessing a growth of over 75% year-to-date this fiscal. The 125cc segment, therefore, is a focus area for us and we are strategically following a multi brand approach in this space. In keeping with this strategy, we have debuted India in this category with the Destini 125 and will soon introduce another scooter towards the end of the year.”

    Sanjay Bhan, Head of Sales, Customer Care, and Parts Business, Hero MotoCorp said, “We are set to delight our customers by commencing the retail sales of the Destini 125 during the ongoing festive season. We are confident that the Destini 125 will be a strong enabler for us in growing our presence in this category. Our customers in the Delhi-NCR market can buy the Destini 125 from tomorrow onwards. It will be made available in other markets across the country over the next three to four weeks.”

    The Destini 125 is available in four metallic colors, namely: Noble Red, Chestnut Bronze, Panther Black and Pearl Silver White. It will be launched in the rest of the country in subsequent weeks.
