Hero Dare 125 Review

Overview

Hero Dare has been one of the hot topics in the upcoming scooter list, resembling the category of Dio and Ray. The headlight in the body is a rare sight in Indian scooter market and you can even say it’s risky for the manufacturers too. Not most of the people are a fan of this arrangement but those who are, they will surely have a nice time with the new offering.

Design & Style

Hero Dare is a futuristic model, looking pretty ahead of its time. The neat use of LED's in the front clearly differentiates it from the others. Not just that, the aggressive front headlight and the black cutter alloys are a rear sight on a scooter to be launched in India. The petal disc at the front makes it look premium, with its body getting sharper near the both ends. Perfect combination of Black and Red makes it a neck twister.

Engine & Performance

The statistics are paperwork till date as no launch date has been fixed for the Dare. It comes with 124.6 cc engine, producing 9.4 BHP @ 7500 rpm and 9.8 NM @ 6500 rpm. Paper stats are pretty impressive, showing the scooter as one of the best ones to arrive in India. The gearbox as always stays automatic for the new generation of scooters.

Brakes & Suspension

The Hero Dare gets a hydraulic disc brake measuring 200 mm, with 2-piston calipers at the front whereas the rear gets the 130 mm dia drum brake. The braking power will be impressive on its 90/90-12 sized front tyre and the rear 100/90-10 will get the advantage of being wide. Telescopic front suspensions will make the ride more flexible and easy on uneven roads whereas the single hydraulic shock absorber at the rear will keep the pillion more comfortable.

Expected Shades & Variants

Black & Red has been the only shade spotted till date and the Dare is expected to be in a disc brake and a drum brake variant. The price of the Dare is expected to be INR 55,000.
