The Hero HF Deluxe is powered by 97.2cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 7.91 bhp and a torque of 8.05 Nm. With both front and rear drum brakes, Hero HF Deluxe comes up with combined braking system of both wheels. This HF Deluxe bike weighs 110 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 9.1 liters.
The 2020 Hero HF Deluxe is the manufacturer’s first entry-level, BS6-compliant motorcycle. The motorcycle’s 100cc engine now gets a fuel-injection system and ‘XSens Technology’ which adjusts the air-fuel mixture on a real time basis through the help of 10 sensors. The engine now produces 7.9bhp of power and 8.05Nm of torque.
Hero has also updated the feature list by offering an idle start-stop system on the higher-spec variant. Termed as the ‘i3S’ system, it helps in saving fuel during brief stops. In terms of styling, the BS6 model receives new graphics as well as new paint schemes - Techno Blue and Heavy Grey with Green.
Apart from these changes, the 2020 HF Deluxe remains the same. It rides on telescopic forks up front and dual springs at the rear. On the other hand, braking duties are done by drum brakes at both ends with Hero’s ‘Integrated Braking System’. The HF Deluxe BS6 is available in four variants – kick-start with spoke wheels, kick-start with alloy wheels, self-start with alloy wheels and self-start with i3S technology. Hero added a fifth variant in April 2021 that is the cheapest of them all. A majority of its hardware and body panels are finished in black and the grab rail is skinnier than the variants.
The Hero HF Deluxe continues to rival the Bajaj CT100, TVS Sport and Honda CD 110 Dream in the country.
