Hero Des­tini 125

One Hero makes way for the other

IREALLY CAN­NOT COM­PRE­HEND how the last nine months have flown past. Trav­el­ling is what keeps us en­thu­si­asts away from our beloved bikes and cars. But that hasn’t kept me from clock­ing miles on the Des­tini. It has been sub­jected to sev­eral Lavasa and Sin­hgad rides in ad­di­tion to the com­mutes. The Des­tini, with its un­der seat stowage and a nice-and-wide foot­board is great for my cam­era equip­ment. Even the seat is ex­tremely spa­cious and I haven’t faced any com­plaints from the pil­lion as well. But the USP of the Des­tini has to be its ride qual­ity. I know it’s a given when it comes to all the Heros, but the Des­tini, de­spite be­ing a scooter, is ex­tremely pli­ant. In fact when we pit­ted it against the Honda Ac­tiva 125 and Suzuki Ac­cess 125, we thought it had the best mix of com­fort­able ride and sporty han­dling. The i3S sys­tem too has been a boon and never did I face any trou­bles at traf­fic lights. It works, and works pretty con­sis­tently; there have been no gl­itches what­so­ever. What it lacks is out­right per­for­mance and re­fine­ment when com­pared to other 125cc ri­vals. But again, the Des­tini is meant for the fam­ily man. Well, I’m no fam­ily man but I’ll miss it for sure!L
