Hero release their sturdy commuter, the Dawn 125 especially for African market.
As the world’s biggest manufacturer of two-wheelers it was only natural that Hero MotoCorp also made a splash at EICMA. The two-wheeler giant unveiled the new Dawn 125. This motorcycle has been developed specifically for the African markets. It is aimed for the commercial segment of the African market.
The Dawn 125 also caters to the utility requirements that the customer have as it is extremely strong, fuel-efficient and durable. Improved visibility is taken care of by the big, round headlight and the metal fender means that the bike can be put through a fair amount of rough use. The power-plant is a 125-cc, air-cooled, four-stroke, OHC single-cylinder engine. It churns out a maximum power of 9.14 PS at 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 10.35 Nm at 4,000 rpm.
For those interested, the motorcycle is available at dealers in Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Mozambique among others.
