On the eve of Auto Expo, Hero MotoCorp have launched three new models at the Auto Expo.
A new 125cc bike, the Ignitor,
First 110cc bike, the Passion X Pro. A
110cc automatic scooter, the Maestro
The Ignitor will add more support to Hero in the 125 segment, where the company is doing fairly. Currently Hero has the Super Splendor, Glamour and Glamour PGMFi in the 125cc segment.
The Ignitor looks very similar to the Honda Stunner (almost same) and will be will be available in five colours. A front disc brake and split seat which we feel is carried form the Stunner will be available on the Ignitor.
Passion X Pro
The Passion Pro will now get a cousin the X Pro with a bigger 110cc engine. It will churn out 8.7bhp at 7500rpm with stylish fuel tank shrouds and a diamond type, tubular steel frame. The Passion X Pro will also get a standard front disc brake and be available in six colours.
The Maestro automatic scooter will be positioned as a masculine scooter which will help attract the opposite riders of the Pleasure. The scooter is powered by a 110cc engine with an power output of 8.2bhp at 7500rpm. The scooter also gets a shutter protected locking system very similar to the Honda. The Maestro will be the first product and sales will start from February 2012.
Hero will display the three new products at the Auto Expo and will also have all the products displaying the Hero badge.
