The world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, Hero MotoCorp, has launched the new Destini 125 ‘Platinum’ edition. The Destini 125 Platinum variant retails at Rs 72,050 (ex-Showroom, Delhi).
The Destini 125 Platinum packs a host of new design and theme elements that add to its appeal. The new variant of the scooter is similar to Maestro Edge 125 Stealth and Pleasure+ Platinum, which features a host of changes over the standard model of the scooter.
The new Destini 125 Platinum features handlebar ends and mirrors finished in chrome providing a rich and retro look to the scooter. The chrome exhaust heat shield and fender strip add to the overall retro appeal of the scooter.
The Destini 125 Platinum features a new matt black colour scheme, brown inner panels, dual-tone brown and black seat, a premium 3D logo of Platinum variant badging, and white rim tape on the wheels. The scooter also features a signature LED guide lamp, a digital-analogue speedometer, a side stand indicator, and a service reminder; among others.
The new Destini 125 Platinum is powered by a 124.6cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine with the brand’s ‘XSens Technology’. It produces a maximum of 9bhp at 7000rpm and a peak torque of 10.4Nm at 5500rpm.
The Destini 125 Platinum features Hero’s intuitive and patented i3S (Idle-stop-start system). The technology ensures enhanced fuel-efficiency from the scooter by turning the engine off when the scooter is idle.
Suspension duties of the scooter are handled by a telescopic fork at the front and a swingarm-mounted shock at the rear. Braking on the scooter is done via a 130mm drum brake setup at both ends. The scooter features 10-inch alloy wheels shod with tubeless tyres.
Malo Le Masson, Head – Strategy & Global Product Planning, Hero MotoCorp, said, “The Destini 125 is a key player in the 125cc segment and has gained recognition from customers since its launch. With the new Platinum edition, we are adding an elegant option to the Destini portfolio.
