  1. HERO ZIR 150CC A MEGA SCOOTER IS NO1 SCOOTER IN UPCOMING SCOOTER INDIA MARKET .IT SHOULD BE LAUNCHED IN DECEMBER 2015 NEW YEAR FESTIVAL INDIA HUGE DEMAND SCOOTER ZIR .

  2. The problem with HERO is how much latest is the scooter, no spares available with the dealer. The workshops only washes the vehicle and charge for servicing. I have HERO Pleasure scooter since 2009. Do not know how to get rid of it.

  3. Hie guys we often wait for most muscular scooters to ride. But Hero just displays models and delays to launch. The maestro edge is launched in north India and duet in south India, it totally irritating . Better to go for other manufacturers like Honda and Yamaha .
