The new 125cc scooter comes with Hero’s own i3S technology but only in two variants. The EFI variants miss out on i3S technology may be due to cost constraints.
In terms of looks and style, there is not much difference in the Maestro Edge 125 than the regular 110cc scooter. However, there are stylish paint jobs available for the scooter. Carb variants get a total of four matt paint schemes – Blue, Red, Brown, and Grey. The FI variant, on the other hand, gets just two – White and Black.
Powering new Maestro is same Dentini derived 125cc engine with exactly same power figures for carb variant. The powerplant with carb makes 8.7 bhp at 6750 rpm and 10.2 Nm torque at 5000 rpm. It is mated to a CVT transmission for power transfer.

Programmed fuel injection variant makes a little more power at 9.1 bhp at 7000 rpm. The torque, however, remains the same at 10.2 Nm at same 5000 rpm. With the programmed fuel injection system, Hero Maestro Edge 125 becomes India’s first scooter to possess FI tech. The motor remains connected to a CVT transmission with dry centrifugal clutch.
Commenting on the launch, Markus Braunsperger, Chief Technology Officer, Hero MotoCorp Ltd., said, “With the introduction of three strong products – Maestro Edge 125, Destini 125 and Pleasure+ 110 – within just a few months, we have laid out a strong roadmap to accelerate our growth in the scooter segment. The introduction of India’s first scooter with the FI technology – the Maestro Edge 125 – demonstrates the capabilities of our R&D ecosystem.”
The Maestro Edge 125 gets most of its features from the 110cc version. Instrument cluster is an analog-digital combo with all basic readouts like, speedo, odo, trip, fuel gauge, clock, etc. There is a side stand indicator too, which proves to be an accident preventor for some.
