SCOOP! Hero Ignitor ready to be launched

Hero MotoCorp Ignitor 125ccHero 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.
