Editorial Review of the Hero MotoCorp HF Deluxe ECO bike

The HF-Deluxe ECO is another iteration of one of the best sellers from Hero Motocorp in the commuter segment, the HF-Deluxe. Aimed at both urban and rural areas, the HF-Deluxe ECO is a good amalgamation of adequate performance, decent looks and fuel efficiency, which makes it an ideal tool for basic city commuting. The motorcycle is one of the most affordable products from the stable of Hero, and has delivered its duty of being a trustful product since the past 10 years.

The Hero HF-Deluxe ECO is basically an HF-Deluxe with fewer styling enhancements. The motorcycle sports a bikini fairing around its halogen headlamp which does not look bland at all. The fuel tank is a nicely styled unit similar to that of the HF-Dawn, with curved knee recesses to continue with the flair of forward stance. The rear side panels are small and plain and sport an alloy grab rail for pillion riders. The tail lamp too, like the fuel tank, has been lifted off from HF-Dawn. The overall silhoutte of the motorcycle looks decent without being too much loud, which is much likeable to the buyers of this segment. The instrument console is a two pod analog unit, in which the left one shows the speedometer and odometer, and the right one has a fuel gauge and tell-tale lights on display. The fit and finish of HF-Deluxe ECO is brilliant for a motorcycle which costs this less, living up to the tradition of Hero's trademark quality standards. The rear view mirrors are large and curvy units and are body colored. The HF-Deluxe ECO comes only in one color option of Green.

The engine is where the real stuff of this motorcycle is incorporated. The Hero HF-Deluxe ECO uses the same 97.2cc 4-stroke, air cooled engine found in other 100cc models of Hero, which makes a maximum of 7.8 PS of power and 8.04 Nm of torque. The engine is refined from the word 'Go' and has enough punch to tackle the hassled city commutes with ease. The mid-range performance of the motorcycle clearly makes this motorcycle a perfect tool for flickering in traffic, however, with a limited high performance with a top speed of just 87 kmph, you will wish to have more power on straight stretches. The upside to it, however, is the outstanding fuel efficiency, wadding to the fact that there are some minor tweaks done to the engine to make it deliver a better fuel economy than HF-Deluxe.

Since the motorcycle is tailor made for city riding, the handling and ride quality of this motorcycle can be said as good. The light-weight nature of the motorcycle allows it to be easily twisted around the corners and potter around without much difficulty. The conventional suspension setup of telescopic front forks and five way adjustable rear coil springs, coupled with a rather flat seat, gives it a comfortable ride trait. The brakes too, 130mm drums at both ends, do their task pretty well. The tyres, though, could have been a bit wider.

Overall, the HF-Deluxe ECO has proved its credentials as a Hero Motocorp product which has been up to the mark of Hero's other commuters on the traits of decent ride quality, easy to maintain and excellent fuel efficiency. The motorcycle is decently priced and is a very 'light-on-pocket' motorcycle which is built to last long.

Pros Great mileage, looks nice

Cons Not stylish

I purchased this bike very recently and this bike is very good, very good priced and gives
me good mileage also. Eco version gives me mileage of around 70kmpl very easily. The bike
is comfortable and good for commuting long, in my case 80km. Although i was disappointed a
bit when i saw the new TVS Star city which has a very good instrument cluster and looks
stylish to, which in case of Deluxe Eco is not all, it has dated looks and the style
quotient is missing completely.
