Hero MotoCorp's CD-series has been there for almost three decades. This primary 100cc commuter has been the choice of the masses for its economic sense and utility along with trademark Honda reliability.
Hero MotoCorp relaunched the HF Dawn in 2018. The updated version gets exciting features, new colours and above all, a BSIV-compliant engine. The bike is available in two colour schemes: red and black with dark/black engine and underpinnings. In the previous versions of Hero HF Dawn, the engine and underpinnings either had a chrome or silver finish.
The Hero HF Dawn is powered by a 97.2cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces a max power of 8.36PS at 8,000rpm and a peak torque of 8.05Nm at 5,000rpm. Hero CD-series is known for its excellent fuel economy, and the all-new HF Dawn is not an exception.
Apart from a new and an updated engine, the all-new Hero HF Dawn also gets several useful features like a wider seat, side-stand indicator and an auto headlamp on (AHO). This entry-level commuter bike features spoked wheels, a kick-starter, and drum brakes. Even the suspension used is basic but features telescopic forks at the front and dual shock absorbers at the rear.
If you are looking for a reliable, fuel-efficient, basic commuter motorcycle, then the Hero HF Dawn can be your perfect riding companion. The HF Dawn locks horns with Bajaj CT100 and the TVS Sport. Currently, the bike is only available in Odisha. However, Hero is planning to step by step, introduce the HF Dawn all over India.
