Hero Duet Highlights
The Duet is powered by the same engine that powers the Maestro Edge, which is a 110cc, air-cooled, four-stroke, single-cylinder powerplant producing 8.4PS of maximum power at 8000rpm, while peak torque of 8.3Nm is delivered at 6500rpm. Bumps and potholes are handled by telescopic forks at the front, whereas a hydraulic shock takes care of the rear. The 130mm drum brakes on both the tyres come with Integrated Braking System. The Duet also gets an external fuel cap and features an under seat bulb along with a USB 3.0 port for charging.
Design and Features
The all-metal body adds a premium feel to the scooter, putting the Duet in a class of one in its segment. Hints of chrome on the front and sides further accentuate its appeal. The Hero Duet gets an analog instrument cluster with a digital odometer. There is also a pass switch on offer. There is a segment-first indicator for side-stand and a service reminder beam on the console.
Honda Activa-i: The Activa-i primarily focuses on women. It’s got a peppy engine and comes with Honda’s quintessential Honda reliability. But the trailing link suspension up front doesn’t help much with soaking bumps as well as the Duet.
Suzuki Let’s: It is styled right and has one of the peppiest engines in the segment. It’s easy to ride in the city and is also the lightest. But the high floorboard limits it from being accessible for taller riders.
TVS Wego: The Wego too has its high points like class-leading features along with a more modern aura. However, it doesn’t feel as peppy as its rivals, although it handles well. It is available in two variants: one with drum brakes accompanied by sync brake system, and the other with an optional front disc brake variant.
Yamaha Ray-Z: The Yamaha Ray-Z is a striking scooter with an eager powerplant. It is comfortable to ride, even for taller riders, thanks to the lower floorboard, and also gets lively handling dynamics. There is a disc brake variant on offer as well.
On the back of handling and the features on offer, the Hero Duet ticks several right boxes despite an understated design language. So if you are looking for a unisex scooter that happens to be not so appealing on the design front, the Hero Duet is a good option to shortlist.

It was not the year of the scooter in India with just four new scooters being introduced in the country during the course of 2015 as only three manufacturers tried their hands in the segment. While the new Piaggio Vespa 150 is the most powerful of the lot, the Yamaha Fascino emerged as an affordable alternative of the same. Hero’s contrasting siblings Duet and Maestro Edge complete the list of the scooters in this category.Jan 18, 2016 | By Team ZigWheels
