The Hero Maestro Edge was primarily targeted to the male riders with the unique tagline of “it’s such a boy thing”. However, with the growing demand of scooters among the female customers, the bike started to make its way to a more diverse market. In fact, given the condition that the sale of scooters is quite at par with the sale of motorcycles in the southern part of India, this scooter started to make a huge impression in the market.
That said, there are a lot of other scooters available as well, with the primary focus being on the Honda Activa, which is presently the largest selling scooter in India. But before buying a new scooter, it is always recommended to gauge all the factors, considering the personal requirements, before buying one.
Let’s see what the other alternatives are for the Hero Maestro Edge that you can consider before buying one.
Honda Activa 4G
When we talk about scooters, the Honda Activa is the first one that clicks our mind. It is marginally cheaper than many of the 110 cc scooters. The engine in the Activa can produce a maximum power of 8 bhp at 7,500 revs per minute and a peak torque of 8.83 Nm at 5,500 revs per minute.
The TVS Jupiter is one of the major products in the scooter lineup of this generation. The Jupiter has had its share of popularity even though Honda and Hero continued to dominate. The TVS Jupiter is powered by a 109 cc engine which makes 7.8 bhp at 7,500 revs per minute and a peak torque of 8 Nm at 5,500 revs per minute.

Why is Hero Maestro Edge better?
You will get a couple of factors that will draw you into buying the new 2017 Hero Maestro Edge. Firstly, it is one of the best-designed scooters in the present times and flaunts a lean and sleek body. It is not unnecessarily bulgy by is very edgy with many cuts and lines on the body.
Secondly, the homegrown motorcycle maker has managed to get the Maestro Edge to have the highest revving engine among the current breed of scooters which will return the feel and the thumb each time you are playing with the accelerator. Just give it a twist and it will respond like a beast, just like we expect from a motorcycle.
