In line with new safety norms, Hero MotoCorp has equipped its HF Deluxe commuter bike with CBS (Combined Braking System). However, Hero has chosen to call it as Integrated Braking System (IBS), possibly to differentiate from other rival bikes that will also be getting CBS.
Hero will be introducing CBS across its entire product range of two-wheelers below 125cc. HF Deluxe IBS i3S range starts from Rs 49,300 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Apart from IBS, HF Deluxe also gets larger rear drum (130 mm), which gives improved stopping power.
HF Deluxe IBS i3S utilizes a tubular double cradle chassis, integrated with telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers at the front and swing arm with 2 step adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear. Braking power is provided by 130 mm drum brakes at front and rear. With CBS, HF Deluxe now has shorter stopping distance and enhanced stability while braking.
