Hero MotoCorp has announced the launch of a new variant of its Pleasure Plus 110cc scooter. Christened as the Pleasure Plus XTec, this new variant of the scooter packs more features than the standard model. Here we list the top five highlights of the new Hero Pleasure Plus XTec.
The XTec badge brings a new LED projector headlamp instead of a halogen unit on the standard model. Hero MotoCorp claims that the updated setup offers 25 per cent more light intensity. Apart from the LED headlight, the new Pleasure Plus XTec also gets a semi-digital instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity. The updated setup shows information about incoming/missed call alerts, new message alerts, and phone battery status. The cockpit gets a side-stand visual indication while a ‘Side-stand Engine cut-off’ function enhances the safety net.
The Pleasure Plus XTec gets several chrome styling elements. These are visible around the headlight, rear-view mirror stalks and housing, apron, front fender, side panels, and exhaust shield. The XTec variant also gets a metal front fender. Moreover, the pillion comfort gets an enhancement in the form of an added back-rest. Lastly, the scooter features a dual-tone seat and coloured inner panels.
The XTec variant of the Pleasure Plus gets the Jubilant Yellow paint. This colour is specially created for the Pleasure Plus XTec.
While the XTec variant gets several styling upgrades, the mechanical specifications remain identical to the standard model. Thus, the new Hero Pleasure Plus XTec continues to use a 110cc, air-cooled engine that produces 8bhp of maximum power at 7,000rpm and 8.7Nm of peak torque at 5,500rpm. The motor continues to use the i3S auto start-stop function.
The new Pleasure Plus XTec has been priced at Rs 69,500 as against Rs 61,900 for the LX variant of the 110cc scooter. The XTec is nearly Rs 3,000 more expensive than the Platinum trim of the scooter.
