Secure Your Hero Maestro Scooty Instantly
Hero Maestro Insurance
Third-party insurance is compulsory as per the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988. However, third-party two-wheeler insurance alone cannot be considered to be the complete insurance solution for your Hero Maestro. Selecting a more comprehensive Hero bike insurance plan with the required riders ensures that your scooter and you are well-protected from the perils of the road and nature.

With the Maestro, Hero attempted to tap the male scooter riding population by injecting an aura of masculinity into the scooter’s design language. Though the Indian scooter market continues to be dominated by the Honda Activa, the Hero Maestro Edge does find a place in India’s list of top bestselling scooters.
There are five variants of the Hero Maestro Edge across two displacement options (110cc and 125cc).

While comparing policies, do consider the reputation of the insurer, as well as factors like their after-sales service and claim settlement ratio.
