While Hero has been the largest player in the motorcycle segment in India for quite some time now, it hasn’t made much of an impact in the scooter market. It entered the 125cc scooter segment with the Destini 125, a scooter which has now received its BS6 update. Here’s everything you need to know about the Destini 125 BS6:

 

Engine Updates

Last year, the Hero Maestro Edge 125 became the first scooter in India to use fuel-injection, while the Destini soldiered on with the same engine being fed by a carburettor. Now, the Destini has received fuel-injection as well, along with an additional catalytic converter, both updates to help it comply with upcoming BS6 emission norms.

As a result of this engine output has changed, and fortunately, it’s gone up. At 9.12PS and 10.4Nm, the Destini 125 BS6 produces 0.28PS and 0.2Nm more than the BS4 version.

 

A New Look

So how does one differentiate the BS6 version from its BS4 predecessor? Well, Hero has thrown in some cosmetic updates in the form of new LED DRLs and new logos. There’s also a new Matte Grey Silver paint scheme that’s exclusive to the BS6 variant.

 

The Unchanged

Of course, BS6 emission norms don’t really have any effect on the rest of the scooter, so the underpinnings have remained unchanged. The Destini still rolls on 10-inch wheels at both ends and is stopped by 130mm drum brakes at both ends. We’re disappointed by the lack of a disc brake option, since the Maestro Edge gets it. Features like semi-digital instrumentation and an external fuel-filler lid continue to be on offer.

 

Price

Of course, with all the extra hardware on the BS6 version, it’s only logical that prices have gone up. The Destini 125 BS6 will set you back by Rs 64,310 for the steel wheel variant and Rs 66,800 for the alloy wheel version. This makes it around Rs 7,000 more expensive than the BS4 version.

 

Competition

With the BS6 deadline nearly upon us, nearly all offerings have already been updated to BS6 standards. So the Destini’s competition comes from the likes of the Honda Activa 125 BS6 and Suzuki Access 125 BS6.
