The Maestro Edge 125 is a premium 125cc scooter from Hero MotoCorp
Hero MotoCorp launched the Destini 125 last year and but did not utter a word about the Maestro. This year, however, they have launched the Maestro Edge 125 along with the Pleasure Plus. We were able to spend some time with India’s first scooter with FI, so let’s find out what the Maestro Edge 125 FI is all about.
Motor Quest: Hero MotoCorp showcased the Destini 125 and the Maestro Edge 125 at the 2018 Auto Expo. However, they launched the Maestro Edge 125 this year which is an elder sibling to the Maestro Edge.
Styling – The Maestro Edge 125 looks very similar to the ongoing Maestro, however, there are a few bits which make it stand out. Like the front apron, the design is the same but the 125 gets an LED DRL. However, there is no LED headlight or indicator but the tail light has always been LED. This time around it is a split unit which differs from the regular Maestro. The overall graphics are now subtle on the 125 while the FI variant also gets dual-tone colours. The FI variant gets 2 colour options while the carb variant gets 4 colour options which are all matte.
Instrument Cluster and Switchgear – The instrument cluster on the Maestro Edge 125 has been carried over from the older Maestro. However, the analogue-digital unit looks fresh and has a different background to it too. The speedometer is analogue while the trip meter, odometer, fuel gauge and a clock are placed in the digital LCD. It also gets a small set of tell-tale lights which has a side-stand indicator. The switchgear, on the other hand, is new and feels quite premium than before. There is no i3s switch here but the carb variant gets one just like the Destini 125.
