A city commuter’s needs are different and the new Maestro Edge 125 works well in most situations that come up while driving through urban traffic. The 125cc motor is peppy, and the CVT tuning has helped the overall experience. Unlike the Destini 125, this one feels quick, especially during off the line starts. The refinement and the NVH is quite good. However, minute vibrations can be felt between 30kmph and 40kmph. Also, thanks to the fuel-injection and the extra power, the Maestro Edge 125 feels like a perfect companion for every-day city commute.
The scooter feels light and that has resulted in some great city maneuvering capabilities. The combination of upright riding positon and the large floorboard results in a contented ride throughout. The overall ride quality too was decent as it ate up most of the bumps and bad roads easily. The large seat was fantastic as it offered great comfort for even someone who weighs close to 100kgs. Hero Motocorp has fine-tuned the brakes pretty well, especially the front disc setup. The IBS system reduces the speed quite efficiently. Hero has claimed a WMTC fuel efficiency figure of 51kmpl, but we’ll tell you the real world figure once we get the scooter for a detailed test.
