The world’s largest manufacturer of two-wheelers, Hero MotoCorp, has just unveiled a new variant of its entry-level motorcycle the HF Dawn. Hero has primarily introduced this model to eliminate the necessity of public transport. The HF Dawn has been provided with a metal carrier, which is securely fastened behind the pillion seat, which will enable luggage carrying capability. The HF Dawn also offers an upright sitting position while riding with an elongated saddle for more comfort. This is one of the primary factors of commuter necessity. A useful side-stand has also been provided for the engaged indicator on the side console on the Dawn.

The HF Dawn is powered by a modest 97.2 cc, four-stroke, mono-cylinder, air-cooled mill, capable of producing 8.2 bhp at 8000 rpm.

With telescopic forks upfront and dual shock absorbers at the rear end, the bike weighs only about 109 kilograms. The fuel tank capacity of the bike is 10.5 litres, which makes quite good ground for the commuter segment. The bike has been tagged at a price of 39370 INR, which is quite affordable in this segment.
