Hero claims a fuel efficiency figure of about 50 km/l, due to the i3S technology which provides greater fuel efficiency.

Working in conjunction with a variomatic transmission, this new engine makes 17 per cent more torque and 9 per cent more power. The engine comes with Hero’s patented i3S start-stop technology and this feature automatically shuts off the engine after idling for 5 seconds. To turn the engine on, one needs to pull either of the brake levers or open the throttle. 

Underpinnings

The Destini 125 is provided with telescopic forks up front and a single shock absorber at the back. The scooter comes to a stop using drum brakes on both ends. It gets Hero’s Integrated Braking System, which moves the front brake when the rear brake lever is pulled to provide an equalised brake force and improve stability. The 10-inch wheels come shod with 90-section tubeless tyres at each end.
