Hero’s second-ever 125cc scooter aims for the stars by being the country’s first-ever fuel-injected scooter. How high does it actually get?
India’s first ever fuel-injected scooter’ is a big cross to bear. Good thing it’s fallen on able shoulders then, the Maestro Edge has been one of our favourite Hero scooters since its launch back in 2015, with a 110cc engine. As always, more power is a good thing, and with the jump to a 125cc motor, Hero has pulled out all the stops. Because along with the addition of fuel injection, which makes it BS6-compliant, the 2019 Maestro Edge 125 FI is also Hero’s first scooter to get a front disc brake. What does it all add up to?
First, the styling and features
The Maestro Edge 125 range includes a carburetted model, which continues largely unchanged to the previous 110cc model (with the exception of minor changes like the dual-texture seat), and the fuel-injected variant which we rode. The two FI scooters come in dual-tone colours for the plastic body, and plastic cladding – the red on black combo looks especially striking, though we got to ride the white and brown one. The FI variants also get a shield-shaped LED daytime running lamp up on the front apron that helps distinguish themselves. The Maestro Edge was always a good looking scooter, with pretty good levels of fit and finish, and that thankfully continues on.
