Destini BS6 price hike is 12-13 percent as it gains fuel injection – Both power and torque are up and Hero says it will be more efficient as well…
Hero has officially launched the updated Destini 125 scooter in India. The 2020 version is equipped with a Bharat Stage 6 compliant version of the same 125cc engine which has been made possible by the use of fuel injection.
The Destini now produces 9 bhp of peak power at 7000 rpm and 10.4 Nm of maximum torque at 5500 rpm. For reference, the older version churned 8.70 bhp at 6750 rpm and 10.2 Nm at 5000 rpm. This means that in this transition, Destini has gained 0.3 bhp of power but it comes 250 rpm later and a hike of 0.2 Nm of torque and it also peaks 500 rpm later.
Hero claims that the new Destini BS6 will be 11 percent more fuel efficient than the outgoing version and 10 percent faster as well.
