It is beyond our understanding how can manufacturers justify price hikes for very recently launched products. New product prices are decided after intense internal discussions after taking various factors into consideration, including the foreseeable few months at least!

Maestro Edge 125 was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo, however, it was launched very recently, on the 13th of May. Hardly have they started with dispatches and deliveries of their flagship scooter, we can see a price hike already! Not more than a few hundred (or at max thousand people) would have received the scooter and Hero has revised the prices.
The quantum of hike may or may not be high but it is inappropriate to increase prices of brand new products within a few days or weeks of its first announcement. It just shows a company’s indecisiveness – holds for each and every manufacturer who does that!

Maestro Edge 125 is Hero second scooter after Destini 125 in this segment and Hero hopes to do good here after getting disappointing results in the 100-110cc segment where they are consistently losing numbers…
