Hero's upcoming 110cc scooter Dash has reportedly hit the assembly line at its Gurgaon-based plant.
A Autocar Professional report, citing industrial sources revealed that the production of Hero Dash scooters began at its plant in the country. Dash is the second 110cc scooter from Hero's plant after Maestro and is expected to hit Indian showrooms soon.
The model, which made its maiden appearance at the Delhi Auto Expo, 2014, was caught on camera quite a few times while on its usual test rounds in the country. The scooter sits above Hero Maestro and will draw its power from 111cc 4-stroke, air-cooled engine that can churn out a power of 8.44bhp and a peak toque of 9.4Nm.
