Mr. Pawan Munjal has revealed the new Hero Dawn 125 at the EICMA show. This bike has been designed and developed specifically for the African market.
Hero MotoCorp is the world’s largest bike two-wheeler manufacturer currently and the company is on a mission to expand their network across the globe. The Indian two-wheeler maker has revealed the new Dawn 125 motorcycle as part of the market specific product strategy.
The new Hero Dawn 125 revealed at the 2016 EICMA Motor Show in Milan has been developed specifically for the African region. The Dawn 125 is aimed at the commercial segment in Africa for customers seeking a motorcycle that offers strength, durability and high fuel efficiency.
The Hero Dawn 125 is a typical commuter motorcycle aimed at comfort and practicality. In terms of styling, it looks very basic, just like the HF Dawn offered in India but the Dawn 125 gets a few improvements. It comes with black alloys compared to the multi-spokes along with better graphics, gloss black elements, etc.
It is powered by a 125cc, air-cooled, OHC, 4-stroke, single cylinder engine that produces 9 BHP at 7000 RPM and 10.35 Nm of torque at 4000 RPM. In comparison, the HF Dawn offered here with a 97.2cc engine produces 8.36 PS at 8000 RPM and 8.05 Nm at 5000 RPM.
Hero MotoCorp is not expected to launch the Dawn 125 in India in the near future. However, it is available right away in the major African markets including Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Mozambique among others. This bike is expected to spin a good amount of volumes for the Indian bike maker.
Along with the Hero Dawn 125, Hero MotoCorp is also coming up with the Dawn 100 and Dawn 150 for the African market. The Indian bike manufacturer is designing and developing the new Dawn series specially for the Aftican market since the bike taxi segment is quite popular in Nigeria, Kenya and Tanzania.
