Duet Engine

Duet’s air-cooled single cylinder 110.9 cc engine churns out 8.31 bhp of peak power at 8000 rpm and 8.30 Nm of maximum torque at 6500 rpm. It returns a claimed fuel efficiency rating of 63.8 kmpl, slightly lesser than Maestro Edge, most probably due to the higher weight of 116 kg (against 110 kg of Edge).


Duet Variants & Launch:

Hero has not revealed the prices of Duet in today’s event and has said that the official roll-out of Duet will follow after 13th October when Maestro Edge reaches the markets. But they have confirmed that Duet will be available in two variants – VX and LX. Hints are that it may be placed slightly under the new Maestro Edge.
