The new Hero Maestro Edge 125 and Hero Pleasure are the fourth and fifth products to be launched by Hero this year: The Hero Maestro Edge 125 shares its underpinnings with the Destini 125, but it is a little bit sportier and feature-packed. The scooter is powered by the same 125 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that is tuned to churn out 8.7 bhp at 6,750 rpm and 10.2 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 rpm. The Maestro Edge 125 also comes with nicer alloy wheels, USB charging and Hero MotoCorp's i3S start-stop technology to achieve higher efficiency, among other offerings.
The Hero Pleasure, on the other hand, is likely to get the same 102 cc single-cylinder engine which puts out 6.9 bhp and 8.1 Nm of peak torque. The figures could see some improvement, while the efficiency is also likely to be better on the new model.

We are also likely to see some visual changes like new colours and graphics along with a few styling additions. Hero Pleasure makes 16 per cent more power and a 7 per cent more torque.
