Hero introduces more affordable prime variant of Destini 125: Check out the price
Delhi : The new Destini Prime 125 scooter from Hero MotoCorp has been introduced to the market with an MSRP of 71,499 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new Hero Destini Prime is the scooter's more cost-effective model; it is Rs 7,749 less expensive than the Destini XTEC LX model, which has a suggested retail price of Rs 79,248; and it is around Rs 14,239 more affordable than the top-of-the-line Destini XTEC VX model, which costs Rs 85,738. Prices are all ex-showroom in Delhi.
The Hero Destini Prime 125 has a basic setup and is devoid of a number of features found on more pricier models. This includes the LED headlamp, which has been swapped out for a halogen one, as well as the chrome bezels that encircle the headlamp cluster. The chrome rearview mirrors have been swapped out for conventional body-colored ones, and the XTEC's backrest has been replaced with a grab bar.
The Hero Destini Prime has an analog instrument console with a digital readout in terms of features. Bluetooth communication is not supported by the device. It still has a boot lamp and a USB charging plug in the storage area under the seat.
The same 124.6 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that powers the Hero Destini Prime is mated with a CVT and is modified to produce 9 bhp at 7,000 rpm and 10.36 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. On the Destini Prime, Hero claims a fuel efficiency of 56 km/l. The same 130 mm drum brakes at either end with a combi-braking system provide braking performance, together with telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. Pearl Silver White, Nexus Blue, and Nobel Red are the three colors that the Hero Destini Prime is offered in.
The new model is available just in time for the holiday season and will give customers who want to buy a basic 125 cc scooter but do not necessarily need the fancier technology a new choice. The firm should move more scooters this season because to the significant price cut. The Honda Activa 125, Yamaha Fascino 125, Suzuki Access, and TVS Jupiter 125 are competitors for the Destini Prime in the family scooter market.
