Hero MotoCorp today announced that it has partnered with CRPF to hand over retro-fitted scooters to specially-abled ex-CRPF personnel.
Launched under the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) platform ‘Hero We Care’, the ‘Hero Salutes Heroes of the Nation’ project the company said that it will hand over 90 retro-fitted Hero Destini 125 scooters – supported by two auxiliary wheels in the rear – which have been customised to suit the riding requirements of the divyang ex-personnel who were disabled while in service.
Available in LX and VX variants, the Hero Destini 125 scooter is powered by a 124.6cc single-cylinder engine (paired with a CVT) putting out 8.8PS at 7,500 rpm and 10.2Nm at 5,000 rpm. The scooter comes equipped with an analogue-digital combo unit with the LCD showcasing the trip meter, odometer readings, and service indicator. The Destini 125 sits on 10-inch wheels wrapped in 90-section Ceat tubeless tyres.
As per the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between Hero MotoCorp and the CRPF Family Welfare Association (CWA), the project will also offer a unique welfare package for 200 identified CRPF families who have been affected severely due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The company also said that it aims to support women from the affected families by creating supportive conditions to maintain their livelihoods, providing them essential services such as food security and nutrition along with education for their children. The company will support children who have lost one or both of their parents or guardians and women who have lost their spouses due to Covid-19 in the country.
The company recently presented these scooters to the Indian Army soldiers across Gujarat, Delhi-NCR, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Karnataka, Bihar, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Jharkhand, Himachal Pradesh, Assam, and Kerala.
