Indian motorcycle manufacturer Hero Motor Corp has launched its Maestro automatic scooter in Goa at Rs 48,280. The Maestro 110 is the second scooter from the world's largest bikemaker after Pleasure.
The new four stroke scooter comes with a 109cc four stroke engine outputting 8 Bhp of peak power and 9.1 Nm of peak torque. Hero claims that the Meastro will have a fuel economy of 60 kmpl. The self-start scooter will also feature combi-braking (front and back brakes applied together) as standard.
The Maestro is a restyled Honda Activa, but with its neat design and large proportions, it is sure to
attract male buyers as well. The scooter will have a digital-analog instrument cluster as a new feature compared to its Activa rival.
The Maestro was first displayed at the Delhi Auto Expo 2012 in January. Meanwhile the scooter is expected to be available in dealerships across the country soon. The new scooter will be available in six different colors, blue, green, red, white, black and silver.
Other features of the scooter include multi-lever key with Magnetic head and shutter, bold trapezoidal multi-focal reflector headlamp and striking front visor, combination tail lamp and clear lens winkers, comfortable wide seat, body coloured mirrors, stylish rear grab rails, maintenance free batter, viscous paper pleated air filter and large storage space.
Currently the much-demanded Honda Activa has a long waiting period of 1-3 months. If Hero can avail the Mastro to buyers in short time, the scooter is expected to sell well in the market.
