Hero Ignitor: First Ride
Hero MotoCorp's latest offering in the two-wheeler space, the Ignitor is out in the market and ready to take on its rivals. So does it pack enough firepower to fight the competition in the premium 125ccsegment or is it just a Honda CB Stunner clone with fresh wardrobe?
Another step ahead from Hero MotoCorp is the addition of some important features that make appearance on the Ignitor which have been missing from the CB Stunner. For instance the inclusion of a kick lever on the Ignitor, which is a cause of concern for many commuters even today as most of them prefer having an option for kick-start than relying completely on the self-start mechanism.
The Ignitor also gets a stylish instrument panel that comprises of an analogue tachometer as well as a digital dash consisting of the speedometer, odometer and first time in the 125cc segment, a clock – apart from showing the regular warning indicators, analogue fuel meter and usual tell-tale lights.
Clever mish-mash of two-tone graphics on the motorcycle, mainly around the large tank helps in cleverly reducing the Stunner over-tones present on the Ignitor and it does hand the bike with little bit of added individuality. Swing a leg over the motorcycle and instantly noticeable is the comfortable riding posture thanks to the well-drawn geometry between the sculpted knee-recess on the curvy fuel tank, the flat-ish handlebar and the faintly rearset footpegs.
Although, the two-step seat does give the rider a bit sportier riding stance without being uncomfortable even for longer period of time. Another reason why the Ignitor feels sporty and easy to ride is the lightweight frame of the motorcycle tipping the scales at just 129kg.
