As we specified here, Hero MotoCorp rules the Indian bike market. In any case, its real predominance is in the bike portion, where it is the undisputed pioneer. Honda rules the bike section with its top rated Activa, being the ruler without any assistance. Saint now needs to give a straight rivalry to the Activa with the Duet. Like the Maestro Edge, the Duet too accompanies the authority of Ex-BMW Markus Braunsperger who, as their Chief Technology Officer, is the individual in charge of all their future models.

Hero Duet Design: 

On the off chance that the Maestro was a swanky-looking bike, then the Duet is a more ordinary looking one, looking a ton like the Honda Activa-i. The Duet has an all-metal body (like the Activa) and that is the thing that makes it the regular suburbanite bike. The uncanny similarity of the Duet with the Activa decreases a bit when you investigate. The front end gets a slick, wrinkled out face with a dash of chrome addition trim, including somewhat more fervor the front board. The paint occupation is a solitary tone undertaking with a touch of chrome here and there. The fog light is a reasonable, lens-sort with turn pointers which again have the unmistakable glass impact with golden knobs in them.

Round speedo in the center with a manual fuel meter, and a perfectly tucked computerized meter compensates for the instrumentation. With such a lot of being secured in silver-dark encompasses. Side stand drew in notice marker is a major welcome on these new Hero bikes and we trust this now will turn into a pattern for the portion. You have the odometer, two excursion meters and benefit updates on the advanced presentation unit. The switch gear set is the standard one with the additional consideration of the highly required Pass catch flawlessly coordinated in the Hi-Low shaft switch. The principle ignition switch, alike the Maestro Edge, works for opening the seat lock, fuel filler cover and the typical elements of ignition and handle lock.

Flip open the seat and you'll locate a decent measure of storage room that can fit in your full face cap. Storage room in here is fundamentally the same to that of the Maestro Edge. The one of a kind component here is the boot light that is included alongside a first time incorporation of a USB 3.0 versatile charging port same as the Maestro Edge. The main short point in this is there is no relentless mounting spot to bolt your telephone while charging moving. We said this in our Maestro Edge survey as well. So in the event that you charge your telephone while riding, odds are, it would continue rattling around in here. We trust the architects at Hero MotoCorp address this issue, yet by the by the expansion of this USB 3.0 charging port is a mammoth positive stride in the bike fragment. We trust the opposition is observing this and would execute these required components in their items as well. For the time being, we have to compliment the architects from Hero for thinking about this.
