Hero Passion Pro Highlights
The Hero Passion Pro BS6 is a sportier looking, feature-packed, slightly more premium alternative to the Splendor iSmart BS6. The commuter motorcycle has received a minor price hike of Rs 760 for both the front drum and disc variants. Check out more details about it here.
Hero Passion Pro Price:
Hero launched the BS6 Passion Pro in two trims: front disc brake and front drum brake. The latest price of the Hero Passion Pro drum brake version is Rs 66,500 while the disc brake costs Rs 68,700. When the BS6-compliant version was launched, the drum brake version was Rs 7,890 more than its BS4 counterpart while the disc variant has been introduced for the first time on this model. All prices, ex-showroom Delhi.
Hero Passion Pro Features:
Hero has kitted the Passion Pro BS6 with a few new features. The front fascia is sharper with sleek tank extensions on the commuter motorcycle. The headlight and other lighting systems remain bulb lit. The Hero Passion Pro’s semi-digital information console gets a real-time mileage indicator. Hero’s trademarked engine idle start-stop technology, i3S, is standard on the Passion Pro.
Hero Passion Pro Engine:
After the BS6 updates, the 110cc motor of the Hero Passion Pro pumps out 9.1PS and 9.79Nm. These new BS6 figures are 0.41PS less and 0.79Nm more than the BS4 motor. Hero claims the new motor delivers five per cent more mileage than before. You get a four-speed gearbox on the Passion Pro.
Hero Passion Pro Suspension & Brakes:
Hero has made a few changes to the underpinnings of the Passion Pro. It uses a new diamond frame with increased suspension travel at both ends. Ground clearance too has gone up to 180mm -- 15mm more than the older bike. The more affordable variant of the Passion Pro gets 130mm drum brakes at both ends. A 240mm front disc brake comes as an option for the first time on the Passion Pro; it was earlier available only on the Passion XPro.
Hero Passion Pro Rivals:
The Hero Passion Pro is a premium 110cc offering from the brand. Its utilitarian design has received a youthful touch with the BS6 updates. Primary rivals of the Hero Passion Pro BS6 are the Bajaj Platina 110 H-Gear, Honda CD110 Dream BS6 and the TVS Radeon. For the same price though, you can also get the Hero Splendor, Pulsar 125, Activa 6G and Hero Splendor iSmart.

Passion Pro Expert Review
Like the Splendor, the Hero Passion has had a long and highly successful career as a more premium alternative to its utilitarian sibling. Hero has made the Passion Pro BS6 ready for its second innings with the help of cosmetic and feature updates and more importantly, a larger fuel-injected heart. Are the changes enough to make the Hero Passion Pro an enticing choice for consumers as it enters a new decade of competition? We review the disc brake variant of the new Passion Pro to find the answers:
Design and Features
As part of its BS6 updates, Hero has given the Passion Pro BS6 a new fresher look. It gets a new headlamp assembly, redesigned fuel tank and tank extensions and an updated tail lamp. Also new are the graphics and five 2-tone colours: Techno Blue, Heavy Grey Metallic, Moon Yellow, Sports Red and Glaze Black. These updates end up giving the 110cc motorcycle a fresh and premium look.

While the Passion Pro BS6 scores highly on looks, it disappoints in terms of build quality. The body panels felt flimsy while the switchgear felt cheap to look at and had sharp edges as well. There were rust spots around the motorcycle despite it being brand new.
Dimension-wise the Passion Pro is now larger than its predecessor. The new fuel tank also holds 1.8-litres of extra fuel which should mean fewer trips to the petrol pump.
Engine and Performance
The new BS6 compliant motor has a higher displacement: 113cc compared to the previous 109.51cc; and in the process, gets fuel-injection. It sees a drop in power by 0.4PS but a 0.89Nm bump up in torque at the same engine revs. The increase in torque and the fact that the new motorcycle is lighter by 1kg than its BS4 predecessor. This means it feels a bit more peppy and reaches 80kmph with ease.
|Powertrain||Hero Passion Pro BS6||Hero Passion Pro BS4|
|Engine specs||113cc, air-cooled and fuel injected||109.15cc, air-cooled and carburetted|
|Power||9.15PS @ 7500rpm||9.51PS @ 7500rpm|
|Torque||9.89Nm @ 5000rpm||9Nm @ 5500rpm|
More importantly, the Passion Pro BS6 offers better in-gear roll-on times thanks to its strong mid range acceleration. The motor is high on tractability and you can accelerate cleanly from as low as 25kmph in 5th gear. The Auto Sail technology helps here. This tech is similar to TVS’s Glide Through Traffic (GTT). It bumps up revs at lower speeds and prevents the motor from stalling. The new setup isn't as smooth as the ones seen on the TVS bikes though and you can feel the choppiness while letting off the clutch and accelerating at lower speeds.
|Acceleration||Hero Passion Pro BS6|
|30-70kmph in 3rd gear||8.63 seconds|
|40-80kmph in 4th gear||13.70 seconds|
In the city, the torquey motor is assisted by Hero’s Start Stop tech. This feature switches off the motor after you are standing in traffic in neutral for more than 3 seconds. To start moving, simply pulling the clutch in brings the engine back to life. The feature helps the motor save fuel and increases overall city fuel efficiency which is on par with BS4 110cc motorcycles. The tall gearing helps the Passion Pro BS6 run unstressed at highway speeds of 60 to 70kmph and achieve a higher fuel efficiency. As you can see the difference between the highway and city mileage figures is marginal and in the fuel efficiency department, the new bike does impress. With a 10-litre fuel tank, you are looking at a theoretical range of 700km.
|Fuel efficiency||Hero Passion Pro BS6|
The motor isn't high on refinement and at speeds of around 55kmph, you feel vibrations through the fuel tank and footpegs. It subsides post that and then makes a reappearance at around 80kmph, close to the Passion Pro BS6’s top speed.
Braking and Handling
The new Passion Pro BS6 gets a new diamond type frame and longer travel suspension. Thanks to the later, you get a ground clearance of 180mm which is 15mm higher than before. The improved clearance helps the Passion Pro BS6 clear even badly designed speed breakers with ease. With the new suspension setup, the motorcycle glides through road undulations and feels pliant except while negotiating sharp bumps and potholes where it feels a bit harsh.
|Underpinnings||Hero Passion Pro BS6|
|Front suspension||Telescopic fork|
|Rear suspension||Preload-adjustable twin shocks|
|Brakes||Front: 240mm disc/130mm drum
Rear: 130mm drum
|Tyres||F: 80/100 - 18
R: 80/100 - 18
The longer wheelbase helps the Passion Pro BS6 offer good stability at higher speeds. In city riding, the Hero commuter offers nimble handling and is easy to weave through gaps in traffic. The MRF tyres work well in dry road conditions but do not inspire confidence while riding in the wet.
|Braking||Hero Passion Pro BS6|
While the braking numbers are on par with the competition, feedback from the brakes are commendable. During hard braking, the motorcycle feels stable and the front disc brake offers a strong and progressive bite.
Safety and Features
The Hero Passion Pro continues to use a halogen headlamp. This new headlamp assembly offers a good spread and throw and has enough intensity to light up dark alleyways. It gets a semi-digital instrument console that holds an analogue speedometer and a digital readout for the fuel level, odometer and trip meter. The start stop switch has been moved next to the instrument console from the right side switchgear. It is a good move since on the previous bike, you would often end up switching i3S off mistaking it for the engine on-off switch.
Besides i3S, the Passion Pro gets another nifty feature called Auto Sail technology. We will discuss both in the next segment.
