According to spy images taken during the advertisement shoot, Hero MotoCorp is planning to launch the all-new Passion XPro in the domestic market soon. The prototype resembles the Passion XPro, which is sold in markets such as Bangladesh. The Passion XPro was discontinued in India years ago, and the upcoming model differs significantly from the previous model.
With mainstream two-wheeler manufacturers focusing on bringing new 100 to 125cc motorcycles and variants, the return of the Passion XPro is not surprising. Hero offers Passion Xpro currently in two colour schemes in Bangladesh: Techno Blue and Sports Red. We can expect both exterior colours to be available in India as well.
It has a sporty appearance thanks to the contrast blue or red highlights over the matte black base paint, as well as the contrast treatment on the black alloy wheels. When compared to the standard Passion, it includes a slew of premium features such as Bluetooth connectivity, SMS alert and call notification, and an all-digital instrument cluster.
The Hero Passion XPro measures 1,967mm in length, 768mm in width, and 1,075mm in height, with a wheelbase length of 1,249mm and a saddle height of 798mm.
A short windscreen, a single-piece black finished seat, a twin-tier LED projector headlamp with an H-shaped LED Daytime Running Light, a sturdy grab rail, and a USB charging port mounted below the console are the highlights. The exhaust, engine compartment, and grab rail are all finished in black for a unified look, but the twin shock absorbers are finished in red.
In terms of power, the Hero Passion XPro will come powered by a 109.15 cc single-cylinder air-cooled i3S engine. It is powerful enough to produce 9.11 PS at 7,000 rpm and 9 Nm of peak torque at 5,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a four-speed gearbox, and it will reportedly be OBD2 compliant when it arrives in India.
