Well, isn’t that exciting?

Read on to know more about the new product from Hero with fuel injection technology for the first time in India.

Due to the ever-growing demand of 125 cc two-wheeler scooters, this time Hero MotoCorp has come up with the Edge 125 cc after a great success of its predecessor 110 cc. The latest bike, however, has much more enhanced features to capture the demand of young generation.

This two-wheeler has so many stylish factors, bigger motor capacity, and much more that you will get a glimpse of as we cover the first ride review of Hero Maestro Edge 125 cc.

The test-ride experience:

  • For a given price range, it provides a comfortable riding experience.
  • Helps you get a good grip thereby, providing a confident riding approach on city roads.
  • It has concise power controlling.
  • However, after crossing the speed limit of 50 kmph, you can feel a slight vibration with little hiccups at massive breaker points.

Main features:

  • It brings the first of its kind the Fuel Injection Programmed Technology.
  • It gives quick pick-up and effortless start in all weather conditions.
  • It has a Digital Analog Meter with service reminder technology.

  • You can run across the road with its tubeless tire without worrying about wear and tear.
  • It also has a comfortable dual textured seat.
  • More security feature with combination lock system.

Designing

  • Though while designing this piece of two-wheeler the base 110 cc version was taken, Hero added upgrades to give it a fresh look. For example; its angular lines, side and front patterns, and the gleaming painted look.
  • The seating arrangement is another turn on due to the dual-textured pattern, which gives enough space to get seated. Also, it’s approximately 775 mm height is well-suited for even a short-height person.
  • The day time running LED Headlamp gives it a unique front look.
  • The external fuel section is one of the dominant style components for this Maestro Edge 125 cc two-wheeler.
  • Besides, it carries a functional storage capacity underneath the seat, though not enough for a full-faced helmet.
  • It has a digitized meter console with lightening insignia.
  • The overall finishing and the color combinations – Pearl Fadeless White and Panther Black are eye-catching.

Handling

  • Its telescopic front and single coil rear suspension give you a smooth ride on the road with balanced 12-inches: 10-inches front to back tire size.
  • Although when passing through the large stopper, you get a bounce, that is quite little to pass out.
  • While taking a sharp turn, it provides a firm gripping with reasonable control.
  • The combination of 190 mm front disc and 130 mm rear drum gives sufficient control over the road whether you are in high speed or taking a turn on a busy highway.

Thus, we can say that Edge 125 is the right choice while riding on city roads due to its excellent handling power while on running traffic.

Performance

  • As compared to its previous version, there is an enhancement in its production with its four-stroke 124.6 ccs air-cooled OHC technology.
  • The engine provides a power capacity of 9.1 bhp and 10.2 Nm torque.
  • It quickly picks up the speed even if loaded with some weight.
