With the Splendor going great guns in the Indian market, Hero upped the ante by launching a more visually pleasing commuter motorcycle for the masses as the design of the popular bike was basic. For this purpose Hero introduced the Passion as its premium commuter two-wheeler offering. With a nice bikini fairing, sculpted fuel tank and snazzy graphics, the Passion was able to make a mark in the highly competitive market. Consumers who were looking for a bit of pizzazz went for the new bike and it soon became among the top selling motorcycles for Hero.
With passage of time, the country’s largest two-wheeler maker has updated the bike on regular intervals with cosmetic updates and also renamed it Passion Pro. Powering it is the same iconic 97.2cc motor as see on the Splendor. The air-cooled mill churns out 8.3PS at 8,000rpm and peak torque of 8Nm at 5,000rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear-wheel via a 4-speed gearbox. One of the key for the success of the Passion Pro is its powerplant that is almost bullet proof with respect to reliability and extremely frugal. The bike returns an overall fuel efficiency figure of above 70kmpl which is impressive. Apart from being frugal, the engine also very refined which adds to its appeal. Riding posture of the Hero Passion Pro is upright and commuterish which makes it comfortable. The long and flat seat makes the bike pillion friendly also. The double cradle frame is a straight lift from the Splendor which makes the motorcycle extremely nimble a trait that is a boon on traffic clogged streets. Braking duties are handled by drum brakes at front and rear which are suitable for the power on tap. Front disc brake though is an optional extra. With respect to suspension, the bike employs telescopic front forks and hydraulic shock at the back. Ride quality isn’t very plush but it does the job. The Hero Passion Pro is a good option for someone who needs a reliable work horse alongwith visual appeal. Also there is the added benefit of fuel efficiency and Hero’s massive dealer network spread and the fact that maintenance cost is amongst the lowest in the segment. So it isn’t surprising that almost 15 years from its launch the Passion Pro continues to be among the top five selling motorcycles in India.
