Default Hero HF Deluxe and HF Deluxe ECO launched

Hero MotoCorp has launched two new commuter motorcycles in India. These bikes sit just above the HF Dawn and below the Splendor in the company's line-up.

Both bikes are powered by the same 97.2cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, carburetted, air-cooled engine that has been seen on many of the company's products over the years. This engine develops 8.25 BHP @ 8,000 rpm and 8.05 Nm of torque @ 5,000 rpm. Both bikes also have a 4-speed gearbox.

It has a 9.5-litre fuel, a telescopic fork suspension at the front and dual-shock absorbers at the rear.

The HF Deluxe ECO has the same dimensions as the HF Deluxe, but comes with a larger fuel tank (10.5 litres). The bike has a telescopic fork suspension at the front and dual-shock absorbers at the rear. Like the HF Deluxe, it comes with 130 mm and 110 mm drum brakes at the front and rear respectively, but has non-asbestos type shoes. It also gets more aerodynamic rear view mirrors and air foils on the leg guards.

The HF Deluxe ECO is available in one colour only - Leaf Green.

Fail to understand why so much of product overlap and what is the intention of bring this out?

You already have a Splendor with almost same specs and features.
Heck!! even it looks so similar and at a similar price point as well(give or take a couple of '000s).
BTW, the bike doesnt look any different and will be lost in the sea of such Splendors and Pros and Passions and what not.
Yet, it will sell in the locations it is being targeted- the Rural India.

HF Deluxe is not a new motorcycle though, I believe this model just includes some body changes.

Eco model is new though. Will have to see if it picks up compared to HF Deluxe with the price difference for Rural India.

What's in the "ECO" model that makes it deserve the name?

I shouldn't have, but I went and checked the brochure. It has an aerofoil on the crash-guard, aero-styled rear view mirrors and low rolling friction tyres. That makes it Eco. I was hoping it at least had idle stop.

Clever marketing ploy! Eco model gets a 1ltr bigger tank compared to the deluxe and can claim to have more economy

Gaadiwadi.com has managed to get the spy shots of 2016 Hero HF Delux Facelift.

Seems that the rider actually stopped the photographer for interrogation. Would be an interesting piece of information to know.

It is sad to see how much Hero cares for its employees. The folks on the bike aren't even wearing riding pants and shoes. The person on the rear has an ill fitting jacket and some unsafe looking helmet. And am sure these folks do similar work everyday for long hours.

What is there to test, the engine looks pretty much to the existing ones (read as splendor). Or they are worried about the new stickering theme
