A scooter for males? Is there more to this than just a marketing spin? We rode it to find out.
The Maestro, says Hero, is a scooter meant for males. So, compared to its only other scooter offering, the Pleasure, the Maestro is bigger, brawnier and surprisingly more stylised as well. And by stylised we don’t mean it’s heavily plastered with stickers; in fact it has none. But, the shape of the headlamp, the front apron and the rear, not to mention the slanting floorboard, make it look very up-to-date. We also found the carbon fibre like finish of the seat cover a nice touch.
The Maestro also feels big once you get astride. The floorboard is large and there’s good distance between the seat and the handlebar enhancing the feel of roominess. The clocks look great and are easy to read too, and the quality, be it for the paint or the plastic parts or even the fit and finish is right up there with the best in the segment.
