Hero Duet-E Overview
Hero Motocorp showcased the Duet Electric at the Auto Expo 2016 which looked good as a green move towards the future of mobility. The idea is to harness the comfort, ride and practicality of the Duet as turn it into an electricity propelled commuter, hence, no emission and no fuel.
Hero Duet-E Engine & Transmission
The expected engine on the Duet-E is a 5kW BLDC electric motor. It is an equivalent of about 6.5bhp of power and nearly 13Nm torque available from almost zero rpm. Hero Motocorp claimed a 0-60kmph time will be achievable in 6.5seconds. A full charge is supposedly equivalent to 60km range.
Hero Duet-E will come with anti-theft alarm, bike locator and obviously plug-in recharge. The styling is exactly the same as on the petrol powered Duet with more green markings to show its intent.
