As soon as it broke cover, the Hero Maestro became quite a popular offering amongst the millennials. Helping the cause was the well-balanced and outright sporty design, coupled with the brand’s bulletproof reliability.
A successor to the Maestro, the Maestro Edge broke cover in 2015. The Maestro Edge, in essence, gets a newer engine that’s borrowed from the Destini 125. But, unlike the Destini, the Maestro Edge 125 gets the option of a fuel-injected engine, which, makes it the first scooter in the country to debut this technology.
For the uninitiated, it’s hard to find any differences between the Maestro Edge twins. On a second or third look, the addition of a newer instrument cluster, LED lamps in the front apron, and a differently textured seat makes the 125 Edge a tad bit different than the standard model. But even so, the design is well balanced and the addition of new colours does some justice to Hero’s flagship offering.
As said earlier, the Maestro Edge 125 borrows its engine from the Destini 125. But there’s a catch. While the Destini 125 only comes in a carburettor variant, the Maestro Edge 125 also comes with an option of a fuel-injected motor. For the carburettor variant, the power and torque figures stand at 8.7bhp and 10.2Nm of torque. The fuel-injected variant, on the other hand, delivers 9.1bhp and 10.2Nm of torque. Both are mated to a CVT automatic transmission.
In terms of design and outright appeal, the Hero Maestro Edge 125 is, more or less, similar to the standard model. Just like the standard Maestro Edge, it has a sporty design which is accomplished with sharp lines and creases. As for the numbers, the scooter is 1,843mm in overall length, 718mm in overall width, and 1,188mm in overall height. Further, it has a ground clearance of 155mm and a dry kerb weight of 110kg.
Fuel tank capacity
The Hero Maestro Edge, for the carburettor variant, has a fuel tank capacity of 5.5-litres. For the Fi variant, though, the fuel tank capacity is down to 5-litres.
When it comes to mechanical cycle parts, the 125cc Maestro shares its underpinnings with the standard model. The scooter sits on an underbone type frame chassis while the suspension tasks are handled by telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The ride quality is exactly identical to the Maestro Edge too. As for the rubber, the front gets a 90/90-12 tyre and the rear gets a smaller 90/100-10 tyre. The braking hardware comprises a 190mm disc at the front and a 130mm drum at the rear.
The Maestro Edge 125 carries over the same features and equipment from the Maestro Edge. The part-digital instrument cluster comprises an analogue speedometer and a small digital display with other useful information. While the headlamp is a halogen unit, there are new LED lamps on the apron. The taillamp, just like its sibling, is an LED unit. For safety, CBS is standard across all variants. The i3s technology, however, is only limited to the Carb variants.
You can grab the Maestro Edge in six different colours: The Carb variant is available in Red, Grey, Blue, and Brown. The FI variant, on the other hand, is restricted to Panther Black and Pearl Fadeless White dual-tone colour options.
