Hero MotoCorp silently launches 2018 HF Dawn with BS IV compliant engine and styling changes.
Here MotoCorp has relaunched its entry level HF Dawn commuter motorcycle in BS IV specification. The earlier model was discontinued as it was a BS III model. The 2018 Hero HF Dawn has now made a comeback as a BS IV model. It continues to be powered by the same 97.2cc, single cylinder, air cooled engine. The unit develops 7bhp of max power and 8Nm of peak torque. It is mated to a four-speed manual transmission.
Hero is offering this model with kick start ignition and drum brakes front and rear as this is an entry level model in a highly price sensitive market. Although a higher end variant is expected later with electric ignition, front disc brake and alloy wheels. As of now braking duties are carried out by a 130mm front drum and a 110mm rear drum brake. The suspension includes a telescopic front end and dual shock absorbers at the back.
The new 2018 HF Dawn is differentiated from the earlier model cosmetically by a blacked out engine, wiring and mechanicals, etc. The motorcycle is currently being availed in red and black colour options.
Priced at Rs. 37,400 (ex-showroom, Orissa) the 2018 Hero HF Dawn is currently the most affordable motorcycle from Hero MotoCorp. The motorcycle was silently launched a couple of days ago and the company has a phased launched planned for it across the country.
