The Dash, Hero MotoCorp’s next scooter, is all set to create a mark in the Indian two-wheeler market. The Dash, which was first showcased in late 2013, has been spotted doing the test rides under heavy camouflage. Hero MotoCorp Dash is a stunning product from the Indian auto giant and is said to be a feature-rich two-wheeler. Industry experts believe that Dash will be competing against the TVS Jupiter, Mahindra Gusto and Suzuki Lets. The Dash was caught test riding in camouflage that revealed some of the features it houses before it will make an entry in mid-2015.

The spy picture reveals that the Dash will be coming with an external fuel filler lid among many other features. External fuel filler lid is a feature something a lot of scooter manufacturers are trying to implement as it appeals to the convenience factor of a commuter. The external fuel filler cap was found resting on the grab rails in the Dash. It also comes with a closeable lid that keeps its location safe. Hero MotoCorp has used LED for the tail lamps in the Dash, which will be its one of the prime selling propositions.

As mentioned earlier, the Hero MotoCorp Dash will be loaded with features like a 12V mobile charging socket, an improved instrument cluster with indicators for low fuel and side stand warning, dual tone rear view mirrors and a light for under-seat storage. The fuel tank will hold 6 liters of fuel. From the array of features it aims to offer, it is evident that Hero MotoCorp has spent much time and energy in designing the scooter that will delight its customers. With an extensive list of features, the Dash is expected to be a game changer in the 110 cc scooter market in 2015.

Coming to its technical specifications, Dash will be powered by an 111 cc engine producing a power of 8.44 bhp and delivering a torque of 9.4 Nm. The engine will be paired to a CVT transmission. Hero MotoCorp is said to be using an integrated braking system, like that of Honda’s CBS (Combined Braking System) on the Dash. The suspension on the Dash is said to be taken care by 30 mm telescopic front forks for the front and a hydraulic shock absorber for the rear. Hero MotoCorp Dash will be priced around Rs. 55,000 (ex-showroom), making it a strong contender in the said segment.
