Design and Ergonomics
This bike is targeted at the mass market, and is therefore styled conservatively, with clean lines and minimal graphics that would appeal to varied tastes. The bike offers the rider a typical commuter-style upright riding position, with wide handlebars and middle-set foot pegs, which minimises stress applied on the lower back and wrists, thereby improving comfort while riding for extended durations.
Engine and Gearbox
The bike is powered by an air-cooled 97cc single cylinder engine that produces 7.7 bhp and 8 Nm of torque, and employs a 4-speed gearbox to transfer power to the rear wheel.
It is equipped with telescopic front forks and a pair of hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear end. The rear shock absorbers can be adjusted to compensate for variation in the load carried.
The bike employs a 130mm drum brake at the front, and a 110mm drum brake at the rear.

Those looking for a bike primarily for commuting short distances (less than 40 kms per day) within the city should consider the Hero HF Deluxe.
