Hero HF Deluxe ECO
Now the Hero HF Deluxe launched its further environment-friendly ‘ECO’ version. Hero has taken a design route that is a bit different from the regular Deluxe’s by giving it a green shade of paint, a contoured front mud-guard, an inbuilt fuel-filler cap, a slightly longish silencer and an extended rear grab-handle. The rear view mirrors are also larger, and body colored. The leg guards receive body colored airfoils that support to the bike’s theme. The bike gets a 10.5-litre fuel tank here, like the one on the Deluxe. Visually, the two bikes are quite different from each other, if you pay attention to the details.
