In terms of styling, it comes with a Chrome plated front end and side panels, along with cast wheels. The Tail lamp also has a distinct look of its own and looks quite attractive.
On the launch occasion, Dr Markus Braunsperger, Chief Technology Officer, Hero MotoCorp Ltd., said,
We are introducing the new Destini 125 scooter, within just a few weeks of launching a new premium motorcycle – Xtreme 200R. This clearly demonstrates our robust in-house competency in designing and developing products in the premium segment.
With a price tag of Rs 57,500, the Hero Destini will compete against TVS NTorq, Honda Activa and Suzuki Acess 125. Although the NTorq has remained as the dominant competition for quite some time now, the Hero Destini is determined to change that.
