Hero Honda launched an improved version of its CD-Down model which is one of the cheapest bikes in its class.

The 2012 Hero Honda CD Dawn comes with a 97.2cc, air cooled, 4 stroke, single cylinder, OHC engine. Compared to the old unit, the new engine received a series of tweaks which raised its power output to 7.7 hp at 7500 rpm and 7.55 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Power is sent to the wheels through a 4 speed gearbox. Other technical highlights include CDI ignition and handle lock instead of ignition lock.

The ride quality is assured by front telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers and a rear 2-step adjustable hydraulic shock absorber.

As far as design goes, the new Hero Honda CD-Dow can be easily recognized thanks to its new side cover, sporty graphics and the body color front fender.
