Design

Upfront, the iconic round headlamp, surrounded by a thick chromium boundary gives the classic looks to this commuter. Top of this headlamp sits the instrument console with an analogue display and side stand indicator. It is the same two-pod cluster with some new graphics. Hero has used a powerful multi-reflector headlamp for this motorcycle, which is claimed to offer more powerful visibility during night. From the orange colored indicators of previous model, this one features clear lens indicators along with a change in the front indicators, which is changed from chromium to body colored unit. Side profile of the bike looks exact same with the older one. But Hero has imposed new set of graphics and colors to give a new look for the bike. Talking about other additions, the bike gets a new exhaust pipe also. The rear tail lamp is moreover resembles the older Splendor and which is assisted with clear lens indicators and a pillion grab rail.

The Engine
It has to be the most desiring factor which would temps one to buy this motorcycle. One of the quality of a commuter is to be fuel efficiency and HF Dawn is renowned for it. Hero has decided to retain this successful, 97.2cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine once again with the new model. But the Hero engineers had tuned the engine to churn out some extra torque and power from it. The mill delivers a maximum power of 8.36 PS power and 8.05 Nm of peak torque. Engine is mated with the old, 4-speed constant mesh gearbox. The top speed of this motorcycle is around 89 kmph and the fuel efficiency is about mouthwatering 89 kmph.

Suspension, Braking and Performance
Hero uses the conventional telescopic hydraulic suspension upfront and swing arm with 2 step adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear. The stopping force of the bike is safe in the hands of 130mm and 110mm internal expanding shoe type brakes.

HF Dawn is just a basic commuter with basic mechanical and electrical hardware, required braking and basic suspension system. The bike is built for day to day commuting and not at all a performance oriented bike, therefore it doesn't have high rated performance figures. The bike is rather easy to handle in city traffics and high amount vibration occurs at higher speeds.

Conclusion
HF Dawn is one of the most affordable bike in the Hero lineup and one could go for it without any second thing, if you are aiming at a regular commuting vehicle. The design and styling elements of this bike suits adult and middle aged men rather than youngsters. This could be one major drawback of the bike, but it still manages to rule the commuting segment without any hurdles.
