The Hero Dare was first showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo and grabbed many eyeballs back then. Hero claims that the 125cc scooter has been designed to attract male buyers, offering a snazzy yet mature styling. Some of its noteworthy features include alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, LED tail light, fully digital instrument console, mobile phone charging socket, and underseat storage light.
The Hero Dare will be powered by an all-new 125cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder motor. Power figures are likely to be around 9PS and 9.5Nm. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear, which has become a norm for 125cc scooters in the market today. We also expect it to come with a front disc brake as an optional extra.
Suzuki Access 125: The new Access 125 isn’t the ugly duckling it once was and is now among the better looking scooters on sale. What really makes the Access 125 click is its performance as it offers good acceleration and is a joy around corners. The fact that it offers fantastic ride quality makes it among the best scooters one can buy.
Vespa 125: The Vespa is a scooter with retro-modern styling. Built on a monocoque frame with minimum overhangs, it turns easily and, being mated to a peppy engine, it is a breeze to ride. The Vespa 125 is a nice product, but because of its high price tag and limited service network, it lags behind its rivals.
Honda Activa 125: The Honda Activa 125 is a well rounded scooter and a safe bet if you’re on the lookout for a 125cc scooter. The refined engine offers good grunt to make your commute interesting while the telescopic front forks mean that it rides over potholes and undulations much better than its 110cc sibling. The styling could have been better and being a Honda, the Activa 125 has been priced at a premium.
Honda Grazia: The Honda Grazia is more affordable than the Vespa and a bit more expensive than the Access 125. For that extra premium over the Access, you get a fresh design with all the modern gimmicks like full LED headlamps and digital instrument cluster along with Honda’s reliability and service support. So, if you are looking for a fuss-free head turner, this might be the one for you.
The competition is stronger than ever for the long awaited Hero Dare. Hero will really have to put in the effort to get the wheel spinning on the Dare as its competition has been around for quite sometime now and has made a name for themselves in the market today. The Hero Dare does look promising and the humongous Hero dealership network works in its favour.
