Bike and Car Mileage Reviews

Hero HF Dawn (CD Dawn)

After the joint venture between the Hero Group and Honda ended, Hero Motogroup has been rebranding the bikes that were household names in earlier times. Last week, the company announced that the much popular Hero Honda CD Dawn shall henceforth be called the Hero HF Dawn. The specifications stay the same though – the bike comes with a 97.2cc displacement 4 stroke engine that delivers a max power of 7.8 PS and torque of 8.04 Nm. The Hero HF Dawn is priced at a very affordable Rs.

34,500 ex-showroom in Delhi.

Hero HF Dawn Mileage Claims

Coming with a 97.2 cc engine, the HF Dawn is as entry-level as it can get. We have discussed a few other entry level bikes over the past week or two. Most of them are in the 100-110cc range; none lower than this. As with every entry level bike, mileage is of paramount importance with the HF Dawn as well.

According to Hero Motocorp, the HF Dawn, or CD Dawn as people should still know it, can deliver 82.91 kmpl under standard test conditions.

In comparison, the officially claimed mileages of Yamaha Crux is 91 kmpl while that of TVS Jive is 82 kmpl. Both these bikes are entry-level as well.

Customer Fuel Economy Reviews

According to customers reviewing the HF Dawn on IndiaGarage, you may expect a mileage between 55-60 kmpl. On Wheelmela, the reports are more positive. According to the website, you may expect close to 75 kmpl on the Dawn.

This mileage could be a combination of city and highway conditions although I am not very sure about this.

Reviewing the CD Dawn, InfiBeam reports that customers may expect an improvement in mileage after first servicing. They note that the initial mileage is 65 kmpl on city conditions and this increases to 75 kmpl after the servicing. AutomobileIndia reports a similar mileage of 75 kmpl in its fuel efficiency review.

To dig deep, let’s look at the reviews on MouthShut. There are 18 reviews for the bike on the site and the reviewers together rate the bike 4/5 for fuel efficiency. The mileage reported is on an average between 55-60 kmpl although customers have also reported higher mileages of up to 70 kmpl.

But the point to note here is that there is hardly anyone complaining about a mileage lower than 50 kmpl.

On Olx, the mileages as expected are higher than those reported on MouthShut. Customers selling their bikes have consistently reported mileage between 60-70 kmpl which is pretty impressive.
