The new Pleasure Plus 110 is the latest to join the gang of lightweight 110cc scooters. How does it fare against its rivals on paper?

Hero launched the new Pleasure Plus 110, which is essentially a funkier, bigger-engined iteration of the 100cc Pleasure, yesterday. It goes head-to-head against some of the country’s lightest 110cc scooters: the Honda Activa i and TVS Scooty Zest 110. Here’s how it performs against its rivals:

97kg

The power and torque figures of both the Activa i and the Pleasure Plus 110 are more or less similar, but the Pleasure Plus produces its peak power a little higher up the rev range. On the other hand, the TVS Scooty Zest 110 makes the least amount of power and torque among the three. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad deal because when it comes to kerb weight, it’s the lightest. This should translate into better acceleration off traffic lights and more agile handling too.

The Hero Pleasure Plus 110 and the Honda Activa i have very similar underpinnings. The Scooty Zest features more modern telescopic forks up front. This should endow the scooter with much better damping characteristics than the other two, at least on paper. Interestingly, the Zest gets a smaller front drum and a larger rear unit! All three scooters get tubeless tyres capable of handling punctures much better than tubed ones.

The Scooty Zest 110 gets a 12mm longer wheelbase than the other two scooters. This should enhance stability at higher speeds. It gets the least amount of ground clearance though, so there are relatively higher chances of the underbody scraping over really bad roads.

Also, the Scooty gets a 5mm lower seat than the Activa i, and this should help it find favour with shorter riders. Hero is yet to reveal the seat height of the new Pleasure, though. The Activa i gets the largest fuel tank capacity, which should give it a little more riding range than the other two scooters.

The Hero Pleasure Plus undercuts its immediate competitors by at least Rs 3,000. Overall, its funky design, reasonably powerful 110cc motor wrapped in a lightweight package makes it one of the best value-for-money scooters in the country. That said, the TVS Scooty Zest 110 makes a strong case for itself compared to the Honda Activa i and the Pleasure Plus 110 because of its superior suspension and lighter weight.
