Key Specs of Passion Pro
Hero Passion Pro Highlights
04 January 2018: Hero MotoCorp has unveiled three new motorcycles as part of its 2018 lineup: the Super Splendor, Passion Pro and Passion XPro. The new models now get Hero MotoCorp’s indigenously developed 110 and 125 engines which are currently used in the Splendor iSmart and 2017 Glamour. Also new on the three bikes is Hero’s iSmart start-stop technology.
The Passion Pro has been one of the most popular variants of the Passion. It has been upgraded for 2018 with the reintroduction of the Passion XPro variant.
The bike receives a subtle redesign in areas like the headlamp, fuel tank, side panels and tailpiece, and also receives a new LED tail lamp. It gets a digital analogue instrument console which houses info like the odometer, tripmeters, side stand indicator and fuel level.
The previous Passion Pro used to come with Hero’s tried and tested 97.2 motor. In its place, the new one gets a 109.1cc air-cooled single. It delivers 9.4PS and 9.0Nm of torque, both figures up from the previous motor. Fuel efficiency should be better as well, given that the bike also gets Hero’s iSmart start-stop technology.
The bike uses a new double cradle frame that is claimed to be more rigid and has reduced flex. This is said to have improved the bike’s stability and road manners. Braking is via drum brakes on both sides, with an optional 240mm front disc brake. The three bikes are expected to be launched before the 2018 Auto Expo.

The Passion Pro gets the 109.1cc air-cooled single that does duty on the Splendor iSmart, making 9.4PS and 9.0Nm of torque. Performance is up and fuel efficiency should be better as well, thanks to Hero’s iSmart start-stop technology.
The new double cradle frame claims to be rigid and with minimal flex. This reportedly improves the bike’s stability and road manners. Braking is courtesy drum brakes on both wheels, with a 240mm front disc brake as an option.
Design and Features
Though the redesign looks subtle on the surface, the entire bike has been cosmetically tweaked. The headlamp, fuel tank, side panels, tailpiece and LED tail lamp are new. The new graphics gel well with the blacked out engine, exhaust and alloy wheels. The red rear dampers add a touch of sportiness. In terms of features, the Passion Pro gets a digital analogue instrument console that shows info like the odometer, tripmeters, side stand indicator and fuel level.
Braking and Handling
The Passion Pro sports 130mm drum brakes on both wheels, but a 240mm front disc is optional. New for 2018 is a double-downtube cradle chassis in place of the single downtube setup. The new frame is reportedly more rigid and has minimal flex. This improves stability and handling by quite a margin. The suspension has been tuned to be firmer, though ride quality isn’t harsh. While commuter motorcycles aren’t exactly known for their handling, the new Passion Pro promises to impress with its road manners.
Safety and Features
In terms of safety, the Passion Pro gets Always Headlamp On feature (AHO) and LED tail lamps. It also gets an optional 240mm front disc that should make braking a quicker and safer affair.
