Indian bike maker and world's largest two-wheeler manufacturer, Hero MotoCorp has just revealed their latest offering the new Dawn 125 at the ongoing EICMA Motorcycle show in Milan. The new bike is particularly developed for the Hero's African market. It is also considered as a part of expanding their global network.
The new Dawn 125 is a very basic commuter in terms of styling, which is similar to the HF Dawn available in India. But the new Dawn looks more pleasant in terms of the black alloys, better graphics and gloss black elements. The big round headlamp, long and wide seat, slender silencer and thick rear carrier are some of the appreciable features of new bike.
This 125cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, 4-stroke, OHC engine draws 9 bhp power @ 7000 rpm and 10.5 Nm @ 4000 rpm. The similar styled HF Dawn in India is a 97.2cc engine producing 8.36 PS power and 8 Nm torque. It uses telescopic forks to get longer travel suspension for better and improved riding experience. Unlike HF Dawn, this new model has a metallic front fender and extended footrests. Therefore this particular Hero offers high fuel efficiency and durability, what the potential African customers are demanding at.
Hero MotoCorp has a well established dealership network in countries like Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Mozambique.The Company is also expecting a strong competition from their arch rivals Bajaj Auto in the African market from their exporting models. Meanwhile Hero is not planning to launch Dawn 125 in Indian market.
