The unit is the same as the newly unveiled Hero Xtreme 200R and is tuned to produce 18.1 bhp at 8000 rpm and 17.1 Nm at 6000 rpm. The adventure tourer will also get a full LED headlamp setup, luggage rack, knuckle guards, and dual disc brakes. New steel frame and swing arm offers rigidity and durability. The Hero XPulse 200 Concept comes equipped with long travel suspension with a telescopic forks at the front while the rear gets an adjustable mono-shock. The Upswept Exhaust offers impressive water wading capacity. This signals the two-wheeler manufacturer's entry into the fast-growing 125cc scooter segment.

The Maestro comes with modern styling and features a sharp front end and a sleek rear.

The Duet 125 also gets an external fuel filler, side stand and service indicator and a pass switch. While the Duet 125 caters to those who are on the lookout for premium styling in a family-friendly package, the Maestro Edge 125 aims to deliver, in Hero's words, dynamism and aggressive sportiness on the move. This should potentially endow them with better fuel efficiency than most scooters in the segment. The scooter offers superior road safety with Integrated Braking System. It is available in red, bronze, black and silver white colour options. The Duet 125 will compete with the likes of the Honda Activa 125 and the Suzuki Access 125.

"The future of personal and shared mobility is on the cusp of a major shift".

"We will continue to have enhanced focus this year on two rapidly-growing segments - premium motorcycles and scooters. Aligned with this strategy, we have showcased two new scooters and a dual goal motorcycle here which will be launched later this year".

The new 200cc bike is being touted as a "dual-purpose" bike suitable for both on-road and off-road use and India's first 200cc adventure bike. "We are therefore confident of further expanding our market leadership with these new launches", Munjal said.

"Auto Expo -The Motor Show is the premier automotive expo in the country, and indeed the ideal platform to showcase our exciting new products and reach out directly to millions of our customers".
