Hero Pleasure Plus 110 vs Hero Pleasure: What’s Different?
As the name suggests, the new Pleasure packs a bigger engine. There’s more to it than just an engine swap, though, and we list out the differences over the older model:
Hero recently launched the new Pleasure Plus 110 at Rs 47,300 (ex-Delhi). The Indian two-wheeler major also sells the existing Pleasure in parallel. So how different is the new scooter from its predecessor? Here’s all you need to know:
Comes with a curvier bodywork:
Design-wise, the new Hero Pleasure Plus 110 is quite a departure from the earlier model. The bodywork is curvier, with a hint of retro flavour thanks to the boxy-looking headlamp with brushed metal finish on the bezel. On the other hand, the 100cc Pleasure features a slightly sharper apron design and angular cuts on the side panels. Even the analogue instrument console in the new Pleasure looks properly retro with white background and black lettering.
Unlike the lockable apron-mounted storage box in the older Pleasure, the new model comes with an open compartment to store your knick-knacks. Additionally, there’s a USB charging port located just under the compartment, and it features a lid too. Even the seat is longer than the 100cc Pleasure, which should enhance the rider and pillion’s comfort. To accentuate the curvy panels on the side, Hero has positioned the boot lock at the rear. The tail light in the Pleasure Plus 110 looks a lot sharper than the one in the older scooter.
Bigger, more powerful engine:
The Hero Pleasure Plus 110 features a 110.9cc air-cooled engine which makes 8.1PS at 7500rpm and 8.7Nm at 5500rpm. This is the same engine which powers the 110cc Maestro Edge and the Duet. Compared to the 100cc Pleasure, it makes about 1.1PS and 0.6Nm more. The output figures may not be that big a jump but considering the fact that the scooter’s weight has remained unchanged at 101kg kerb, it ought to make a noticeable difference in terms of acceleration and slightly better top speed as well.
Dimensionally different too:
In terms of dimensions (LxWxH), the new Pleasure Plus 110 is 19mm longer, 1mm slimmer and 46mm taller than the 100cc Pleasure. Interestingly, despite the increase in overall length, the Pleasure Plus 110 actually has a 2mm shorter wheelbase, at 1238mm. Even the ground clearance is 30mm more, at 155mm. This should make the new scooter go over bumps and bad roads with relative ease.

The fuel tank in the Pleasure 110 can hold 4.8 litres of juice, which is 0.2 litres less than the one in the ‘regular’ Pleasure. The bigger engine could be the reason for the slightly smaller fuel tank.
Hero has priced the Pleasure Plus 110 at Rs 47,300 for the cast wheel variant and Rs 49,300 for the alloy wheel version. This is just Rs 2200 more than the respective variants of its 100cc sibling! For that premium, you get an all-new funky design and a more powerful engine - that too without compromising the weight. That’s a solid cost-effective upgrade, we say!
