What’s new in Hero HF 100?

Hero MotoCorp has released several entry-level motorcycles with desirable features at affordable prices; the Hero HF 100 is one of them.

The new bike model is rather fashionable even if the mileage hasn’t been sacrificed. This bike is available in several varieties that may get started by a kick or an electric motor. If the bike could reach 85 kmph, there would be even more benefits.

The new Hero HF 100 commuter bike has telescopic forks and hydraulic shock absorbers for the suspension system and 130 mm drum brakes for both the front and back of the bike.

Highlights of Hero HF 100

Design of Hero HF 100

The Hero HF 100 is a simpler model than the HF Deluxe, yet it has a similar appearance. It resembles the HF Deluxe in terms of style and layout and has no additional body graphics that set it apart from the other model. The aesthetics and design of the two motorcycles differ somewhat, but other than that, they are nearly similar.

The rectangular headlamp with the plastic cowl has evolved through time into a commuter category icon despite the overall clean and tidy style.

The single-wide seat and the twin-pod instrument cluster are pleasant to ride in. Like the Deluxe model, the back also has a single rectangular tail light.

The use of 5-spoke alloy wheels lends the whole design a softness and practicality.

Colour and variants of Hero HF 100

The Hero HF 100 is available in two colours

  • Nexus blue
  • Black with red

The hero hf 100 is available in 1 variant :

  • Kick start drum brake alloy wheel – fi

Engine of Hero HF 100

The Hero HF 100 is renowned for its extraordinarily dependable and fuel-efficient engine. The most recognisable, tried-and-true engine in India’s commuter motorbike market is what Hero has equipped the HF 100 with. The air-cooled, 97.2cc engine produces 8.36 HP power and 8.05 Nm maximum torque delivering 7.91 bhp at 8000 rpm.

Even though these numbers don’t look spectacular on paper, the lightweight HF 100 performs excellently given its size and power output. The Hero HF 100 has a 4-speed gearbox that drives the back wheel.

Features of Hero HF 100

The Hero MotoCorp HF Deluxe performs admirably, is ideal for consumers who care about mileage and makes sound financial sense.

This bike has a ground clearance of 165mm and measures 1965 mm in length, 720 mm in width, and 1040 mm in height. This bike has drawn consumers in addition to performance and mileage due to its appealing characteristics.

Despite having an older-looking design, this bike has some modern amenities, including a power start, a trapezoidal multi-focal reflector headlamp, five-spoke alloy wheels, telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers up front, and a swing arm with a two-step adjustable hydraulic shock absorber at the back.

Transmission and brakes of Hero HF 100

The tubular twin cradle chassis of the Hero HF 100 houses telescopic shock absorbers for the front suspension and swingarms with hydraulic shock absorbers that may get adjusted in two steps for the rear suspension.

Thanks to the Hero HF 100’s excellent tyre and brake setup, it is one of the best-knit city bikes for everyday commuting.

Prospective buyers like the 18-inch tubeless alloy wheels and tyres, which are matched by a significant number of drum brakes on both ends.

Although disc brakes on a motorbike seem to be a need these days, the HF 100’s price range acts as a roadblock.

Top 3 Competitors of Hero HF 100

Hero HF 100 vs Hero Splendor Plus

The Hero HF 100 is slightly less high-end than the Splendor Plus but shares the same architecture and drivetrain, which results in lower costs. But given that the Splendor costs significantly more than the HF Deluxe, is it worthwhile to get it instead?

The same engine and transmission are available on each of these motorcycles:

  • A 97.2cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine combined with a 4-speed sequential gearbox.
  • The engine can produce a maximum of 8.02 PS and a maximum torque of 8.05 Nm.
  • Both motorcycles come equipped with fuel injection and a kick starter as standard in the BS6 era.
  • Additionally, the most advanced versions include a self-start feature.

The Hero Splendor Plus includes a modest amount of standard equipment, including alloy wheels, tubeless tyres, analogue speedometer and odometer, kick start, and drum brakes (with the integrated braking system, or IBS). You also get self-start and i3S start/stop technology with higher trims (for better fuel economy). LED lights are not available

With the addition of spoked wheels and even thinner tyres, the base model of the Hero HF 100 delivers the same characteristics as the Splendor Plus’ lowest grade. The front and rear tyres on the former are 2.75 inches, while the front and rear tyres on the latter are 80/100. Only the 18-inch wheels are fitted to both machines.

Three variations of the Hero Splendor Plus include:

  • Kick Start and Alloy Wheels,
  • Self Start and Alloy Wheels
  • Self Start and Alloy Wheels with i3S.

The hero Hf 100 is available in 1 variant :

  • Kick start drum brake alloy wheel – fi

The Splendor is priced between Rs 60,000 to Rs 70,000, and the Hero HF 100 is priced between Rs 48,000 to 55,000.

Hero HF 100 vs Hero Shine

The Hero HF 100 is powered by a 97.2cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed sequential gearbox. The engine has a maximum output of 8.02 PS and 8.05 Nm of torque. In the BS6 era, the Hero HF comes standard with fuel injection and a kick starter, and the most recent versions also have a self-start function.

A 124.73cc air-cooled, single-cylinder motor with a maximum power output of 10.16bhp at 7,500 rpm and a high torque output of 10.30Nm at 5,500 rpm powers the Honda CB Shine. The engine is coupled with a 4-speed transmission, and the engine’s power and refinement are more than sufficient for city commuting.

On Hero HF 100, the front and rear tyres are 2.75 inches, while on the latter, the front and rear tyres are 80/100. The Hero HF 100 is equipped with 18-inch wheels fitted for both machines.

Numerous best-in-class features are included with the Honda CB Shine. The motorcycle’s front forks, exhaust, and engine cover are all black, and the chrome treatment improves the motorcycle’s appearance on the exhaust pipe.

The Hero HF 100 is available in five different configurations: Kick Start with Spoked Wheels, Kick Start with Alloy Wheels, Self Start with Alloy Wheels and Alloy Wheels (all black).

One version of Hero Shine is offered in five eye-catching hues: Matte Axis Grey, Geny Grey Metallic, Rebel Red Metallic, and Rebel Blue Metallic.

The Hero HF 100 costs between Rs 48,000 and Rs 55,000, while the Hero Shine costs Rs 77,000.

Hero HF 100 vs Bajaj Pulsar 125

The Hero HF 100 is powered by a 97.2cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine with a 4-speed sequential gearbox. The engine’s highest output is 8.02 PS and 8.05 Nm of torque. In the BS6 era, the Hero HF 100 is equipped with a kick starter and fuel injection as standard. The most recent versions also have self-start capability.

A 124.4cc single-cylinder engine paired with five-speed manual gearbox powers the Pulsar 125. The air-cooled engine can produce 11.8 horsepower and 11 Nm of torque. The Bajaj Pulsar 125 can return 62 kilometres per gallon.

The front and back tyres on the former are 2.75 inches, while those on the latter are 80/100. Both motorcycles have 18-inch wheels mounted to the Hero HF 100. Regarding security, Bajaj has included CBS (Combined Braking System) as standard equipment on all models of the Pulsar 125. The headlight and side indicators are equipped with conventional bulbs, but the taillamp is an LED unit.

Five alternative versions of the Hero HF 100 are offered: Alloy Wheels, Self Start with Alloy Wheels, and Kick Start with Spoked Wheels (all black).

Two variations of the Bajaj Pulsar 125 are available. The cost of the bajaj pulsar 125 is 70,000 rs for the drum-cbs bs-vi variation and 75,000 rs for the top of the line disc-cbs bs-vi variant ( as of mid 2023 ).
