Hero Destini 125 Specifications
The Destini 125 is powered by a 124.6cc single-cylinder engine (paired with a CVT) putting out 8.8PS at 7500rpm and 10.2Nm at 5000rpm. In its BS6 avatar, the engine is claimed to make 17 percent more torque and 9 percent more power than the existing 110cc Duet. The Destini’s frame is suspended on a telescopic front fork and a hydraulic shock absorber. It rides on 10-inch wheels wrapped in 90-section Ceat tubeless tyres. Hero has also equipped the scooter with Integrated Braking system that applies both front and rear brakes in conjunction.
Hero Destini 125 Features
The Hero Destini 125 sports a more sober design than the other newly launched 125cc scooters in the country. It is available in two variants: base-spec LX and top-spec VX. The latter features a large chrome chest on the apron, dual-tone seat cover, generous use of chrome on the side body panels, and alloy wheels. The LX, on the other hand, misses out on these features and instead comes with a single-tone seat cover, silver garnishing on the apron, and steel wheels. The scooter is available in four colour options: red, bronze, white, and black. There’s an analogue-digital combo unit, with the LCD displaying the fuel gauge, tripmeter, odometer readings, and service indicator. Also part of the package is a side-stand indicator. In addition to the standard features, the VX comes with a mobile phone charging port and boot light. Both variants get an external fuel cap, accessible via the ignition key slot. The scooter also gets Hero’s i3S system as standard for the first time. The system switches off the engine if it idles for more than five seconds and turns it on when one of the brake levers is pulled.
Hero Destini 125 Competitors
Honda Activa 125 : Like the Destini, the Activa 125 also has a sober design language. However, this scooter comes with a few nifty features which the Destini lacks: LED headlight, optional front disc and eco speed indicator on the analogue-digital combo cluster. Reasonably, these features puts a premium on the scooter’s pricing, at Rs 59,921 (ex-Delhi) for the base variant.
Suzuki Access 125 : The Access 125 was once the most affordable scooter in its segment. However things have changed now, thanks to the Destini’s arrival. The curvy bodywork on the Access gives it a retro appeal, while the large 21.8-litre underseat storage enhances the scooter’s practicality too. Just like the Activa 125, Suzuki also offers the Access with an optional front disc brake. When it comes to pricing, the base variant of the Access is around Rs 1000 more than the Destini 125’s’ base model.
