Starting from the front, Hero has updated the windshield, which is now 60mm taller. The models also get updated LED headlamps with DRLs and Hero claims an increase in light intensity by over 230 per cent as compared to the previous model. Also updated for the 2023 year, are the handguards which are now closed loop type and offer more protection. The luggage plate at the end has also been updated and the USB charging port has now been moved to the dashboard. You get three ABS modes now — Road, which is standard and you get default ABS settings. Offroad mode reduces the ABS intervention for better deceleration in off-road conditions and Rally mode which takes the offroad mode a step further.
