Hero Honda gives the CD Deluxe and CD Dawn slight make up for 2010..
The "Splendor", which is priced above the CD Deluxe, still doesn't have "Self Start" and the CD Deluxe has it..
The news about "refreshed" 2010 CD Deluxe and CD dawn models was around since the beginning of this year. But the Hero Honda website did not show the changes till a couple of days back.
Posted below are the images of the 2010 Hero Honda CD Deluxe and CD Dawn models. The changes is mostly limited to "new stickers" and a "matt back finish" silencer. The CD Dawn does get a 2 way pre-load adjustable rear shock absorbers.
"Self Start" ("Power Start" in Hero Honda Lingo) is a feature which was already present in the older CD Deluxe as an option. The current price list in the Hero Honda website doesn't show the price for a "kick start only" model.. but at the same time the tech specs does show the kerb weight of a separate "kick only" model.
So is there a separate "kick start" CD Deluxe model? Or is the "self start" now a standard feature?
I am confused.
It is actually quite surprising that the "Splendor", which is a model priced above the CD Deluxe, still doesn't have "Self Start" even as an option. I can safely predict that the Splendor will soon get the Self Start feature in it's next upgrade.
Please let me know if you can find any other noticeable change in the two models. right now I am just too lazy / not motivated enough to personally check out these bikes.
