The new HF Deluxe has been designed and developed completely in-house at the company’s R&D centre, the Center of Innovation and Technology in Jaipur, Rajasthan. Powering the 2020 Hero HF Deluxe BSVI is a 100cc BSVI compliant Programmed Fuel Injection engine with ‘XSens Technology’ (10 Sensors). This engine produces 7.94bhp of power at 8,000rpm and 8.05Nm of torque at 6,000rpm.

Vikram Kasbekar, Executive Director – Operations (Plants) and Chief Technology Officer, Hero MotoCorp, said, “At Hero MotoCorp, we have been working towards ensuring a smooth transition to the BS-VI norms, not just for us but also for all our stakeholders, the industry and most importantly the customers. We are into the final leg of this transition phase and key products in our portfolio like the HF Deluxe are being transitioned now to ensure smooth ramp-up. Our BS-IV inventories are low and will not be replenished going forward. We will be introducing a slew of BS-VI products in the coming weeks.”
