The Hero Duet has been priced at Rs 48,400 (ex-showroom, Bangalore).

The scooter is powered by 110cc, air-cooled, 4-stroke, single cylinder unit that can dish out 8.31bhp @ 8,000 rpm and 8.3Nm of torque @ 6,500 rpm. The Duet claims a fuel efficiency of 63.8 kpml.

To be available in six body colours – Candy Blazing Red, Pearl Silver White, Grace Grey, Matte Nature Green, Panther Black and Vernier Grey – the new Hero Duet features under-seat mobile charging port, remote seat opening, remote fuel-lid opening, pass switch, service reminder, side stand indicator, illuminated storage compartment and twin parking lamps.

The Hero Duet will be available in two variants – VX and LX – for Rs 48,400 and Rs 49,900, respectively (ex-showroom, Bangalore).

"We have now expanded our scooter portfolio with the launch of the new scooter Duet. The Duet and Maestro Edge scooters – the first of the products developed by our own in-house R&D team - mark a significant step in Hero's journey. The Maestro Edge has already proved to be a blockbuster since its launch earlier this month. Now with Duet in the market, we are confident of further strengthening our presence in the scooter segment," said Pawan Munjal, Chairman, MD and CEO, Hero MotoCorp.
