Hero Maestro Edge 110 cc automatic scooter has been spotted at a dealership, indicating that it is ready to be launched in the festive season. We expect it to go on sale sometime later this month.
Previewed as a near production concept under the Dash nameplate last year, Maestro Edge would be positioned as a sportier alternative to regular Maestro. Design highlights include a prominent angular headlamps, apron mounted turn indicators, a stylish exhaust canister, a black visor, wide rear combination light and a silver grab rail.
The silver accented instrument console features an analog speedometer and a digital odometer. The wide seat can easily accommodate two with decent comfort and there is a useful lockable storage box on the inner side of the front apron. Expect the underseat storage compartment to gobble a full face helmet.
Maestro Edge is expected to be powered by a new 110 cc air-cooled single cylinder engine which is developed in-house with inputs from its powertrain technical partner AVL Austria. Expect the power and torque output to be not less than 8 PS and 8.5 Nm respectively. A fuel economy of around 60 kmpl seems probable.
Feature highlights include tubeless tyres, telescopic front forks, and Integrated Braking System (a la Honda’s Combi Braking System).
Hero Motocorp would be pricing Maestro Edge 110 slightly higher than the existing Maestro which retails at INR 48,350 (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
