According to the company, the bike concentrates on utility needs, sturdiness and mileage. The styling of the Dawn is quite simple yet rugged. It gets obvious components like the big round headlamp, long and wide seat, thick black alloy wheels, and a black slim silencer. The metallic front fender offers enhanced rigidity, while the broadened foot pegs makes for better grip. The telescopic front forks additionally appear to have longer travel suspension for enhanced ride quality.  According to Hero, the Dawn provides better fuel efficiency against the competition.
