Bookings for the new Hero HF Deluxe IBS has begun, although the motorcycles are yet to arrive at dealerships. The HF Deluxe IBS is available with and without the i3S Technology from Hero MotoCorp. The i3S technology or 'Idle Start Stop System' cuts off the engine once it reaches idling. This helps improve fuel efficiency and lower emission levels.

Apart from the additional IBS system, the HF Deluxe commuter motorcycle also comes with a set of larger drum brakes, improving braking distance. The motorcycle is also available in a new colour option — Heavy Grey with Green.

There are a few updates on the instrument cluster as well. The cluster on the updated HF Deluxe now features a blue light for the i3s tech, side-stand warning light and a fuel gauge as well.

There are no other changes to the HF Deluxe. It comes powered by a 97.2cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. It produces 8.36bhp and 8.05Nm of peak torque and is mated to a four-speed transmission.

The Hero HF Deluxe comes with telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers at the front and a swing arm with 2-step adjustable shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is through a set of 130mm drum brakes, which replace the previous 110mm brakes.

This is the first Hero product to receive an update in 2019. The addition of the IBS update is part of the upcoming safety norms of April 2019, which mandates the presence of a combi-braking system for two-wheelers under the 125cc segment.
