Besides BS4 engine, the new Duet also gets new body graphics and colour options. Introduced as a unisex scooter, the scooter is placed below the Maestro Edge, and targets a wider audience base. The scooter comes with an all-metal body and softer lines, and shares most of its components and specifications with the new Maestro Edge.

      Of these two, we’ll suggest you to for the Maestro for its unisex appeal and better styling. Performance-wise, both are alike.

    What about strength of scooter?
    Will it sustain a heavy load?

      Scooters are usually made for day to day city commuting purposes, and are not meant for heavy load.
