Hero Destini family scooter – All you need to know

All new Hero Destini family scooter

Hero is all set to launch their Destini scooter in India. It, along with the 2018 Maestro was showcased to a handful of dealers recently- strongly indicating a launch around the corner. If you think that the scooter looks familiar even though the name doesn’t, there’s good reason. The Destini is actually a rebranded 2018 Hero Duet and was showcased at this year’s Auto Expo with latter name tag.

Why Destini? Well the other name wasn’t really bringing in hordes of customers, was it? From 2018, Hero wants to clearly distinguish the Destini as a family scooter and the new name is a start. The Maestro is then aimed to entice a younger audience.
