Hero MotoCorp launches Passion Pro and Passion XPro

Hero Moto Corp – Passion PRO

Automotive company Hero MotoCorp has launched the all-new Passion PRO and the Passion XPRO in the Indian markets on Tuesday, commencing the sales on the same day. The bike will be available in five metallic colour schemes - sports red, black monotone, force silver metallic, heavy grey metallic and frost blue metallic, and in both drum- and disc-brake variants. We think that the 2018 Passion Pro is among the most stylish looking 110cc commuter motorcycles.

According to Ashok Bhasin, head - sales and customer care, Hero MotoCorp, "Hero MotoCorp is the clear market leader with over 50 percent market share in the domestic motorcycle market in India, and also leads the 100‐110cc segment with over 75 percent market share".

The Passion Pro is powered by Hero's new, vertically-inclined, 109cc air-cooled single cylinder engine that debuted on the Splendor iSmart past year. The changes have also made the Passion XPro heavier as it weighs 3 kg more at 119kg. The two Hero Passion motorcycles have received a slight bump in power and minor styling updates for the 2018 model year. The Passion 100cc has been now growing at around 20%.

The Passion XPRO is targeted at the youth with its dynamic shrouds, different cowl design and LED tail lamps.

The motorcycle also offers a slew of safety and utility features, such as Digital-Analog meter with digital Fuel Gauge, trip meter, All Time Headlamp On (AHO) and side stand indicator. The bikes also get Auto Headlamp On (AHO) function to meet the new regulations. Interestingly, the Passion XPro gets a smaller, 9.2-litre fuel tank as compared to 11 litres on the Passion Pro. The new motor has been developed by Hero MotoCorp and was first introduced on the Splendor iSmart a year ago.

The two new variants are equipped with Hero's i3S (Idle-Stop-Start System) technology, making it performance oriented and more efficient, the company said. Other components remain identical too with telescopic forks up front and a twin-shock setup at the rear. The 0 - 60km/h sprint time is claimed to be 7.45 seconds for both motorcycles.

The 2018 Hero Passion Pro and Passion XPro compete against the new Bajaj Discover 110, Honda CD Dream Series, Honda Livo, TVS Victor and the likes in this extremely competitive segment.
