The vehicle has tubular style handle bar, curve fuel tank and single seat. It has modern features like full LED lighting with LED indicators and LCD display with Bluetooth connectivity. The upcoming bike has a strong tank with sporty tank shrouds. The contoured design of its single piece seat and the sharp looking exhaust make its aesthetics look quite strong.
The same engine as Harley Davidson X440 has been used in Maverick. However, minor changes may be seen in it. This 440cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine produces 47BHP of power and 37NM of peak torque.
Its negative LCD instrument console is very clean and provides information related to speedometer, tachometer, gear position indicator, range and mileage indicator and side stand alert. Hero Maverick bike has Bluetooth connectivity with turn-by-turn navigation, call and MSS alerts, digital clock, estimated time of arrival (ETA), distance and phone battery indicator.
