Hero’s number one scooter is a feature packed all-rounder.

Hero enjoys an unprecedented success when it comes to the commuter class of 100-110cc motorcycles. But when it comes to the segment of automatic scooters, it didn’t have an offering to thrash the undisputed leadership of the scooters, the Honda Activa. Though the Maestro and Pleasure did churn up decent volumes for the manufacturer in the country, they still haven’t been able to bring down the sales of Honda scooters, which have been selling like hot cakes.

Then came the Maestro Edge and Duet, which further strengthen the scooter lineup for Hero in the country. However, the sales of the Maestro Edge have turned out to be a bit lower than what Hero had expected. So now, Hero has tried to infuse some novelty in the Maestro Edge for the year 2017 by adding a couple of new features to the scooter. Let’s have a look at what all changes do the new Maestro Edge get:-

Manufacturers took them off the shelves to make way for new models.

As you all know, starting from April 1st, 2017, the Supreme Court has ordered all manufacturers to stop registering and selling vehicles still running on BS-III engines. To clear them before the deadline all dealers who had stock started levying massive discounts on their products, and some even lost money in this process. The industry took a ₹ 600 crore hit due to the three-day discount fest.

Then there were few motorcycles that just did not sell despite the discounts. This was the cue for the manufacturers to take them off the shelves completely and get a new replacement machine for the same ones. While some of them have been replaced, few others just could not manage to burn the midnight oil and live up to expectation. They were just phased out of the assembly lines. Here is a list of those who couldn’t make it to the party this year:-

Comparison – Yamaha Ray ZR vs Honda Dio vs Hero Maestro Edge vs Suzuki Let's

Comparison – Yamaha Ray ZR vs Honda Dio vs Hero Maestro Edge vs Suzuki Let’s

Gone are those days, when scooters were thought to be the companions for only the fairer sex. In this day and age of busy lives, most of the urban commuters and youth want a hassle free ride, which is convenient to use and practical to live with, and in that case, scooters are becoming a boon with their practical advantages, such as underseat storage, automatic transmission, etc.

The Indian scooter segment has come a long way from almost being dead in the start of 21st century, to being the most favorite segment of two wheelers which it is today. Almost every major two wheeler manufacturer now has a strong presence in the scooter segment, which more or less is helping them out not only in widening their product portfolio, but also multiplying their sales.

Today, most of the scooter manufacturers are not only targeting women, but also men and boys with their boisterous scooters, which look more masculine, edgy and sporty than regular feminine looking scooters. The latest scooter to join this bandwagon is Yamaha’s all new Ray ZR, which is more than just an evolutionary model of the existing Yamaha Ray Z. Apart from the motorcycle-ish stance, the Ray ZR brings in maxi-scooter like design which is unique to the segment to which it caters.

But going for the Ray ZR wouldn’t be so easy, as it has a very stiff competition to live with. First is the pioneer of sporty looking scooters, Honda Dio, which started the trend of ‘motoscooters’ in the country. After that, comes the Suzuki Let’s, which took the bars way up in terms of performance. And then finally, there is another strong rival in the form of Hero Maestro Edge, which has shaken up the segment with its value for money proposition and the fact that it has got Hero’s first self-developed powertrain. Here’s a quick comparison of all these four major boisterous scooters mentioned here, and see which one is the most bang for your hard earned buck:-
