Hero’s finally catching up with the competition in the 125cc scooter space. The arrival of the feature-packed 2021 Maestro Edge 125 puts the two-wheeler manufacturer in a better position to take on its rivals. Apart from a host of new features, the scooter also gets aesthetic updates to keep it looking fresh.


What’s The Price? Who Are Its Rivals?

Prices for the 2021 Maestro Edge 125 starts from Rs 72,250 (drum variant). That’s a premium of Rs 400 over the standard Maestro 125. However, there’s a substantial increase in premium as you move up the ladder. At this price point, the 2021 Maestro Edge competes against the Yamaha Fascino 125 FI Hybrid, TVS NTorq 125, Suzuki Access 125 as well as the Honda Activa 125.  


How Many Variants Are There?

You have a total of three new variants to choose from apart from the standard models. The 2021 Maestro 125 drum brake variant costs Rs 72,250, while the disc variant will set you back by Rs 76,500. The top-spec Connected model is the most expensive of the trio, at Rs 79,750 (all prices, ex-showroom Delhi). 


What’s New?

All three variants feature a redesigned front apron with masked turn indicators and sporty graphics on the bodywork. Modern touches include a sleek segment-first LED projector headlamp, which Hero says will improve night visibility substantially, and a full-digital instrument console.

The highlight, though, is the top-spec connected variant which benefits from Bluetooth connectivity. This gives customers access to a host of features, such as turn-by-turn navigation, passkey, missed call and other call alerts, real-time fuel efficiency, an Eco and low fuel indicator. Hero’s dedicated app, which comes standard with the Connect variant, adds eight features including topple alert, theft alert, find my parking, track my vehicle, and trip analysis.

You also have new colours. The connected variant, for instance, comes in two new prismatic colours: yellow and purple. The disc variant is available in six: red, black, silver, matt blue, Prismatic Yellow, and Prismatic Purple. As for the drum variant, it's available in four shades: red, black, silver, and matte blue.


What’s Unchanged?

What hasn’t seen any change is the scooter’s 125cc engine and its underlying hardware. It continues to use the same BS6-compliant 124.6cc motor that puts out 9.12PS and 10.14Nm. The suspension, brakes, and tyres are the same as well.



The design revisions, coupled with the feature updates, surely puts the 2021 Maestro 125 in a better position to take on its rivals. The fact that it’s still priced competitively should give it an advantage over its competition.
