Hero MotoCorp is just about to launch a bike called the Ignitor with a 125cc ATFT engine.
The bike was displayed by the company earlier this year at Auto Expo in New Delhi, and yes, it does resemble the Honda Stunner a lot. India’s No. 1 two-wheeler maker hopes to strengthen its grip on the 125-cc segment where it has other models like Super Splendor and Glamour, priced between Rs 55,000 to Rs 60,000 (on road, Pune).
However, the sporty looking Ignitor is a premium offering in the segment and will bear on-road Mumbai price tags of Rs 66,139 for the drum and self-starter version, while the disc and self-starter variant is priced at Rs 68,426.
It’s not just the external design that resembles the Honda Stunner, even the specs of the 129kg bike at Hero’s official website states that the 124.7cc engine will produce 11.15 PS power and 11 Nm peak torque, which is identical to the Honda. You get to chose from four colour options – Pearl Whilte, Sports Red, Vibrant Blue and Panther Black Metallic.
