Hero MotoCorp working on a sporty 125cc scooter; patent leaked!

The new model could use the 125cc engine that powers the Maestro Edge and Destini.

A design patent of what is believed to be Hero’s new 125cc scooter has leaked online.

The leaked image reveals a sporty scooter with an aggressive-looking front fairing and dual headlamps. The design of the side panels looks to be inspired by the Xoom 110. It has a single-piece stepped seat and a split grab rail.

The new scooter is equipped with a telescopic front fork and a conventional shock absorber at the rear. The alloy wheels though, appear to be larger than those on the Xoom 110. The scooter also has a petal-type disc brake at the front.

Reports suggest that Hero MotoCorp’s new scooter could use the 125cc, single-cylinder engine that powers the Maestro Edge and Destini. This engine develops 9 BHP @ 7,000 rpm and 10.4 Nm @ 5,500 rpm.
