Hero Duet Review
The Hero Duet is Hero MotoCorp's attempt at raising the scooter scales by manifolds. Just like the Hero's Maestro Edge, the Hero Duet too has steered away from Honda's engine and technology and is entirely homegrown by Hero MotoCorp. It took Hero MotoCorp many efforts to design, build, and launch Hero Duet on a whole new platform and powertrain.
Positioned between the masculine Hero Maestro and the emasculate Hero Pleasure, the Hero Duet is an optimum unisex family scooter. This change has helped in boosting the sales of Hero MotoCorp in the Indian scooter segment.
The high-end Hero Duet VX proffers a comfortable and stable ride at both city speeds and highway all thanks to the telescopic front suspension. Furthermore, the well-padded seat and the scooter's suspension isolate you from the bumpy roads and sudden jerks due to uneven roads. The 10-inch tubeless TVS tires provide an excellent grip. However, the small-sized tires add to the bumpy rides over the speed of 50kmph mark.
Moreover, the footboard vibrations are felt over the same 50kmph mark and gets further bothersome as the speed increases. Make sure to note that the base version of Hero Duet - Hero Duet LX received a regular hydraulic damper that is linked to its bottom. This degradation might not be up to the mark for some users.
The bold and robust metal body of Hero Duet adds six kilograms to the weight and makes it a bit bulkier than Maestro Edge. However, it offers stability even in strong winds and vibrations on the highway. This scooter comes with Hero's trademarked Integrated Braking Systems to add to its reliability.
