The positioning of the lamps adds a novel seem to be to the bike, the entrance visor looks comparatively greater and much more aerodynamic and hides the instrument console and holds the physique colored rear view mirrors. Then again the instrument cluster has been carried over from the old motorbike the one further addition comes within the type of a aspect stand warning symptoms and actual time mileage indicator.

Probably the most fascinating and catchy part of this bike is the inclusion of the side body panels and the work of the photo in every single place it that covers the engine too leaving a small section exposed. Alternatively, the panels get new design and the gas tank is more distinguished and springs as sculpted. The tail lamps get a new graceful design with LED bulbs and a pair of winkers. Coming to the seats they appear rather comfortable and cushioned but this time Hero has delivered the cut up seats which adds to the sporty quotient of the bike. The previous variation of this bike displayed a bronze colored exhaust, however this time it has got the regular metal one. The broader tires at the rear of the bike reinforce the overall seem of the bike and give it an upright stance too.

Moderately honestly we didn’t liked the front styling of the bike but because it did free the visible mass from its aspect profile this motorbike now unquestionably seems to be higher than its predecessor.
