It is being said that Hero MotoCorp, the country’s largest selling two-wheeler manufacturer, plans to come up with a new 125cc scooter for the fast-approaching Auto Expo 2018. There are good chances that this upcoming Hero scooter would be the production version of the Dare concept scooter that was previewed earlier.

Currently, the 125cc segment comprises of models like the Piaggio Vespa SXL/VXL 125, Honda Grazia and Hond Activa 125, and the Suzuki Access 125.
