White and Orange seems to be a very good colour combination to look at, especially when it is on something that has wheels. And that was the colour of my ride in Goa. Usually Goa is associated with colour, style and flamboyance thanks to the 'constant state of party ' it is in. But this time my experience with my ride here was different. Riding the updated Hero Pleasure in Goa taught me that sometimes, it is better to do things the conventional way if you want accurate observations/reactions. Things I also learned that day were that if you are taller than the average man and ride something that is smaller than average, it surely gets some attention, but not necessarily for the right reasons!
The Pleasure is perhaps the most underrated product in Hero’s lineup. Underrated because, despite Hero MotoCorp’s strong base and unlike the Maestro which is also popular and has garnered decent sales, this scooter hasn’t done too well. Hero MotoCorp says that the facelifted Pleasure is more than just a regular facelift. So we took this new scooter out for a conventional short ride to Dona Paula which is not only famous for awesome roads but is also known for amazing Portuguese architecture, to find out if it is what it claims to be.
