Hero Maestro Edge 125: Same Price Other Options
What other bikes/scooters can you buy for the price of a Hero Maestro Edge 125
Hero MotoCorp has launched the Maestro Edge 125 FI at Rs 62,700 (ex-showroom, Delhi). It is currently the only fuel-injected scooter available in India. In addition, it gets a lot of features like LED DRLs, external fuel filler cap and boot lamp. At this price, the Maestro Edge offers excellent value for what it offers. However, there are also a few options you could consider at the same price, including both scooters and bikes. Here’s what you could go for instead. In case, you want to look at other 125cc scooter options, check out our spec comparison here.
Honda Activa 5G (Rs 56,389):
The world’s best-selling scooter in its latest 5G model gets a bright LED headlamp. While it is not high on features, it gets a virtually indestructible 110cc motor that makes 7.96PS and 9Nm, and a robust metal bodywork. Buy it if you want a scooter that will last generations.

Hero Splendor iSmart 110 (Rs 55,850):
Hero’s household Splendor name has been carried over in the Splendor iSmart 110. It gets a new and larger single-cylinder vertical motor that is quite refined and fuel efficient. The 109cc motor delivers 9.1PS and 9Nm of torque. Helping its fuel efficiency bit is Hero’s i3S start-stop system that switches off the motor if you idle for more than 3 seconds in traffic. Buy it if you want a smart-looking, reliable and fuel-efficient motorcycle. Know more about the Splendour iSmart here.
Honda Shine (Rs 63,316):
The Honda shine is a no-nonsense 125cc commuter. Its 125cc motor makes 10.3PS and 10.3Nm of torque. It is a torquey unit and feels significantly quicker than most 110cc motorcycles. What it lacks in features and design, it makes up in fit and finish as well as overall reliability. A good buy if you want a reliable, no-nonsense commuter but want slightly more performance than a 110cc bike. Know more about the Honda Shine here.
Hero Passion Pro (Rs 56,425):
The Passion Pro’s 97.2cc ‘sloper’ engine has been around since the 80s and is arguably India’s most successful motor ever. Think of the Passion Pro as a better-looking Splendor. Underneath, the Passion Pro has the Splendor’s tried and trusted underpinnings and motor. It delivers 8.36PS and 8.05Nm. Know more about the Passion Pro here.
TVS Jupiter Grande (Rs 60,200):
The other 110cc scooter in this list, the TVS Jupiter is one of our favourite scooters and that’s for good reason. It has a refined and fuel-efficient 110cc motor that makes 7.99PS and 8.4Nm, plush ride quality, and a wide seat. Plus, it is loaded with practical bits like LED headlamp and external fuel filler cap. Go for it if you want a feature-rich and refined scooter with good fuel efficiency as well. Know more about the Jupiter here.
Yamaha Fascino (Rs 56,793):
The Fascino’s retro styling is its USP. It is a good looking scooter and gets a peppy 113cc motor that delivers 7.1PS and 8.1Nm of torque. It gets telescopic forks and a single monoshock, 10-inch wheels and drum brakes all around. It is, in essence, a very affordable alternative to the more expensive Vespas.
