- BS6-compliant Passion Pro spotted before launch
- Powered by BS6 Splendor iSmart's 110cc motor equipped with fuel-injected
- Gets revised styling with new colour schemes and graphics
Hero MotoCorp has been gearing up to update its product portfolio with BS6 compliant products before the 1 April 2020 deadline implemented by the government. The manufacturer has already launched BS6 compliant versions of the Splendor iSmart and the HF Deluxe. Now, with other products in the pipeline to get BS6 compliance, the 2020 edition of the Passion Pro BS6 has been spied undisguised before its upcoming launch.
In terms of design, the 2020 edition of the commuter motorcycle has received a rather stylish update. Looking at the spied images, the front gets a new fairing, tank extensions and a revised headlamp cluster. It also gets new colour schemes with edgy graphics, this one being in the shade of yellow with silver and black decals. While the spied images only disclose the front end of the bike, expect an updated tail section as well.
Coming to the powerplant, the 2020 BS6 Passion Pro will be powered by the same 110cc fuel-injected motor that does duty on the recently launched BS6 Splendor iSmart. The motor registers a max power output of 9bhp at 7,500rpm and a peak torque output of 9.89Nm at 5,500rpm. Transmission duties will be handled by a four-speed gearbox. The engine will also benefit from Hero’s i3S technology that switches off the motor on idling to conserve fuel. Other specifications of the motorcycle will be known once the motorcycle is officially launched.
Expect Hero to launch the BS6 Passion Pro 110 in the coming weeks. Other products from the company’s portfolio will also be migrating to BS6 before the emissions deadline comes into action.
