Hero Duet VX Review

21 Jun, 2016 11:43 AM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

Hero is on a launching spree and its latest target is the highly growing scooter market of India. The much awaited Hero Duet is finally here with its strong list of advantages over the traditional scooters of India. Hero has finally changed the path and got its new and exclusive design for an entry level scooter of India. Hero Duet is priced at Rs. 48,400 for the LX variant and the VX variant is available for 49,900. These prices are ex-showroom Bangalore.

Design & Style

The scooter gets a non-traditional design from its side view, slowly changing to a common pattern followed at the front. The major distinguishing factor comes out to be its chrome V-lining in the center body. The forks are hidden below the front mudguard and the whole metal body looks perfectly strong and shiny from its first view. The addition of body color to the rear view mirrors makes them more impressive than normal black colored units on traditional scooters.

Engine & Gearbox

The engine of the new Duet is same as that of the newly launched Maestro Edge. The motor is a 110.9 cc, single cylinder unit producing 8.31 BHP @ 8,000 rpm and 8.3 NM @ 6,500 rpm. The engine is mated to an automatic transmission. The new scooter gets a 115 kg, making it heavier than the normal scooters in the market. The same is due to its metal body, increasing the weight and reducing the performance values. It returns a company claimed mileage of 63.8 kmpl.

Braking & Suspension

The new Hero Duet comes with a 130 mm drum brake for the front and rear wheel. The suspension on the scooter is telescopic forks for the front and monoshock absorber at the rear. The scooter gets a better setup than the competition as many of the offerings are still selling with older technologies and bigger price tags.

Comfort and Safety

Getting a metal body would make it feel premium to many traditional automatic scooters and the comfort on the scooter is further raised with the availability of mobile charging socket, under seat lamp and luggage hooks. The safety is handled by integrated braking system for efficient sudden braking and tubeless tyres for lesser flat out moments. Immobilizer from the Maestro Edge is replaced by a combination lock in the Duet. The raised weight of the scooter provides a more stable ride but would affect the fuel efficiency of the Duet.

Variants & Shades

According to the new classification, the Duet is available in LX and VX variants, providing more features on the top VX trim. The shades for the Duet are Candy Blazing Red, Nature Green Metallic, Pearl Silver White, Grace Grey Metallic, Matt Vernier Grey and Panther Black Metallic.

Ex-showroom Price

Hero Duet is priced at Rs. 48,400 for the LX variant and the VX variant is available for 49,900. These prices are ex-showroom Bangalore.

1. Plastic material for motor cover makes air intake, due to this sand, dust, water goes in and jam the bearing, gears, etc... You must clean thison every service which cost 1500 approximately. 2. While going on wet roads, wet sand splashing on front cover, Headlights and even on driver helmet glass. 3. Nice riding experience on turning.

Best Features: Single lock system

Pros: Big seat, color, light design

Cons: Plastic parts, R&D fully not done

I purchased in December But Unable to drive in the traffic because very hot air is coming and unable to put my leg on ground at traffic signal. I complained about this problem to Hero Motors dealer Sri Venkateshwara motors at Hyderabad. After two days (they kept my vehicle with them) they have given three best suggestions to me for avoiding the heat. They also told that this vehicle design is like that and they can t help in this matter the best suggestions given by them as 1. I HAVE TO STOP THE ENGINE AT TRAFFIC SIGNAL. [BUT THEY ARE UNABLE TO TELL HOW I DRIVE WHEN THE TRAFFIC IS MOVING VERY SLOW] 2.INSTED OF PUTTING LEFT LEG ON THE GROUND [AT TRAFFIC SIGNAL] I HAVE PUT RIGHT LEG. AND THE MOST IMPORTANT 3RD SUGGETION IS I HAVE TO DRIVE THE VEHICLE WITH SHOES NOT WITH CHAPPAL . SO FRIENDS PLEASE DO NOT DEPEND ON TEST DRIVE PLEASE DRIVE AT LEAST FIVE KM SO THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO SEE THE PERFORMENCE OF THE VEHICLE

Best Features: Looks good, features good

Pros: HERO THE INDIAN CO.

Cons: Unable to Drive in Traffic more than five kms

Hero duet two wheeler is really good. I purchased it on the occasion of SHIVRATRI. Its great experience with it. Its look is great with white color. Head light gives the great feeling. Average is nice with 110 cc. Side look and back look are great. All function with one key is great feature i.e oil lock and sheet opening. Mobile charger and light facility in diggi. I really appreciate hero duet with all means as per my need.Miliage is good 50 to 55.

Hero Duet is a look alike of Honda Activa and comes with almost the same performance parameters. The lower price point of 48K might prove to be its selling point, especially in the rural areas.
