Hero MotoCorp launched yet another bike in its Passion range in a bid to boost their sales. Naming it the Passion X-Pro, the manufacturer made quite a few changes to the Passion.
The changes in the external features of the Passion X-pro include a new graphic design and a contoured tank. The bike comes equipped with a digital-analog combo meter console featuring a service reminder indicator. The company says the headlamp has been upgraded to a trapezoidal multi focal unit to improve visibility.
The main highlight on the Passion XPro is the sealed VLRA battery, which is a maintenance-free battery. Black alloy-wheels come as standard while the electric start is optional. For enhanced safety, the bike is equipped with tubeless tyres and disc brake in the front.
The Hero Passion X-Pro is powered by an air-cooled, four-stroke, 110cc engine that produces 8.7bhp of power. Hero has termed this motor as APSDVI (Advanced Pro Series Digital Variable Ignition). The engine comes mated to a four-speed manual gearbox.
Though second only to the Splendor in terms of sales, the Passion series of motorcycles have always been a hit since 2001. The Passion X-Pro with a good overall package should appeal to a customer looking for a motorcycle from the commuter segment and in a way add to Hero MotoCorp's sales further.
