The Pleasure Plus is peppier and faster than the Pleasure, and the credit goes to the new 110cc engine. This one makes around 8bhp and peak torque of 8.7Nm which is around 16 per cent and 7 per cent more than the older engine respectively. The engine is smooth, has the oomph to get around tight situations pretty easily and linear. The throttle response too, is crisp.
This Hero reaches around 70kmph pretty comfortably. Try to go over that, and you would be disappointed. The best place to sit around is between 45kmph and 50kmph and that’s the ideal city speeds. Post that, vibrations kick in and could be felt on the floorboard.
The Pleasure Plus behaved quite well in the Delhi traffic. The compact dimensions and lightweight made it easy to pull through crazy airport traffic. The scooter feels agile, but lacks the stability as it is equipped with 10-inch wheels at both end. Plus, due to the smaller wheels, the floorboard had to be raised so that the scooter can go through Indian speed breakers easily. On the downside, it feels cramped for taller individuals. The trailing arm front suspension setup worked decent, but we are yet to test it exhaustively on bad roads. The Pleasure Plus gets decent set of brakes. For a beginner, it works efficiently and gets the job done without any drama.
