The Hero CD Deluxe was re-branded to Hero HF Deluxe after Hero ended its joint venture with Honda in 2010. The Hero HF Deluxe is an entry-level bike from Hero MotoCorp with attractive features. Hero CD Deluxe looks stylish with 3D graphics. HF Deluxe is based on the same platform of HF Dawn and has almost identical physical dynamics. The original idea behind the conception of this bike was to offer a cheap alternative of Bajaj Platina with better looks and style than Hero's existing bike HF dawn. It has an integrated visor and cowl which looks neat and stylish with its crystal clear headlight.
Instrument console of Hero HF Deluxe is similar to HF Dawn but features a much needed fuel gauge. New HF Deluxe has an analogue speedometer, trip meter and fuel gauge. There are also other indicators in its instrument console. Hero has incorporated this bike with an electric start. Hero used a silver finished rear grab rail which looks nice and is easy to hold. Rear tail light is slightly improved and it features orange coloured indicators which could have been flexible like Platina. Tank opener is still not integrated in its fuel tank. Hero HF Deluxe shares its suspension and braking system with HF Dawn. It sports telescopic forks at its front and at the back; this bike has 2-step adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers. HF Deluxe is available with 18 inch alloy and spoke wheels.
New HF Deluxe is offered in four variants and five dual tone shades. HF Deluxe is capable enough to give a tough competition to its biggest rival, Bajaj Platina, Honda Dreame Neo. Ride and handling of this bike is also very satisfactory. Moreover, its high resale value, fuel efficiency and wide service network of Hero is an additional benefit. For us, it's a complete value for money bike as it's easy on pocket and comes with a reliable and refined engine.
