HF Dawn Expert Review

Here is what our experts feel about HF Dawn

Hero is world’s largest manufacturer of two-wheelers thanks to its Splendor and Passion series. Hero Motocorp is also known for their cheap sturdy bikes and this bike is not an exception as well. HF Dawn is currently the most basic and cheapest bike sold by Hero Motocorp in India. It has the classic and bare basic bike look with an all-black theme. Hero Splendor and Hero Passion are well-known brands of Hero Motocorp but the low priced dawn is relatively unknown as it is currently available in only one market. Yes, Hero HF Dawn is exclusively available in Orissa only and not in any other state. This bare basic bike is available in only one variant with a standard drum brake and spoke wheel priced at Rs. 37,625. The bike competes with the likes of Bajaj CT100, Honda Dream series, and the TVS Radeon.  

The basic commuter of the Hero dawns a simple and clean look. On a first glance, it looks similar to the now discontinued Hero Splendor Classic. Mostly due to its round headlights and that classic looking fuel tank. But unlike the Classic, which was dressed in chrome, this bike gets an all-black theme. So the round headlight up front gets a mat black trim but no pilot lamps. Even the rear suspension is black which is otherwise from the usual red suspension seen sporting by Hero motorcycles. Everything is black, the engine, the wheel rims, front suspension forks, and the rear grab handle. The tank is contoured well and the side panel has the HF Dawn badging. Rear gets a tail light similar to the Splendor flanked by clear lens turn indicators. The seat on this bike is extra wide as well as long to provide enough comfort to the rider and pillion. Grab bar is matte black and is very sturdy as well. The exhaust pipe is long and flaunts all black heat plate. To keep costs low, the bike gets a basic analogue instrument console. It has the speedometer, odometer, and misses out on the fuel gauge. The graphic design is kept to a minimum and it comes in only two colours of Black and Red.

Hero HF Dawn is powered by the same engine that powers the Splendor and Passion range of bikes. The 97.2cc, air-cooled, 4 - stroke single cylinder OHC engine on this bike produces the same max power of 8.36PS at 8000rpm and the same peak torque of 8.05Nm at 5000rpm. Even the engine is mated to the same 4-speed gearbox seen on HF Dawn’s elder siblings. This tried and tested gearbox is smooth as well as works great in rugged conditions. To keep the cost low, the bike does miss out on the famous i3s technology by Hero that is seen on its other range of bikes. Performance is decent and works well in Indian conditions. Fuel tank capacity on this bike is at 9.5 litres. The fuel efficiency of this bike is at 82.9kmpl and the bike manages to top at 87kmph. 

HF Dawn is for the commuters who travel in the city and use it for basic day to day purposes. Riding is comfortable and the upright posture helps reduce fatigue. The suspension is handled by telescopic forks with hydraulic shock absorbers up front and at the rear, the bike gets a swing arm with 2 step adjustable hydraulic shock absorber. It works well on the patchy city and rural roads of India. Braking on this bike is taken care of by 130mm drum unit up front and a smaller 110mm drum unit at the rear. Drum brakes provide enough bite and response for riding in Indian road conditions. There are no alloys and only 18-inch spoked wheels that run on 2.75 x 18 - 4 PR / 42 P section tyres up front and a 2.75 x 18 - 6 PR / 48 P section tyre at the back. Tyres provide enough grip and give a smooth ride. 

As mentioned earlier, this is the most basic bike offered by Hero Motocorp and cost is kept to a minimum. So, as a cost-cutting measure, it lacks safety features like a disc brake. But as mandated by the government it does get AHO feature in its headlights. Due to this feature, the bike is safe as it is visible during any weather conditions to the oncoming traffic.
