Hero Pleasure Portrayal:
The Hero Pleasure is eye candy in the true sense of the word. We are really happy with the design, the console, the headlamp, the rear view mirrors, the front, side and also the rear panels. The exhaust is boosted with a muffler and the contour of the bike is well accented with a nicely shaped front & rear wheel fender, ensuring that it lives up to its reputation as eye candy!
Team BikeBD Experience:
Riderz as you know, we at BikeBD share real track test results & experiences with our readers & followers. We try to assess each and every bike with a long and comprehensive testing procedure, conducted on different tracks under various situations. This time, for the Hero Pleasure, apart from the male riders, we did a survey of the female riders as well and it was very insightful to see their genuine pleasure upon riding this scooter.
We found the Hero Pleasure really fun to ride on with comfortable wide seats for both the rider & the pillion. There is wider foot rest position for the rider. Both front & rear suspensions are responsive and comfortable. Both the brakes are conventional drum type but they work nicely within their limit. However, the front brake is comparatively weak. But that is again a normal phenomenon with scooters. The tubeless tires with excellent grip give more confidence while riding.
One of the best safety features of the Hero Pleasure is that the bike is equipped with an Integrated Braking System, which applies both the brakes once the rear brake lever is pressed; this helps to improve the stopping distance. This is particularly useful for novice Riderz. The front brake is independent and it doesn’t feel any different from a conventional system. We strongly suggests pressing both the front and rear brake lever for maximum braking efficiency.
The engine of Hero Pleasure is quite responsive for a scooter. Pleasure really gives real time acceleration on twisting the throttle where the final drive is shaft driven attached with single swing arm wheel mechanism. Due to shaft drive, power delivery is smooth and no friction loss as like the chain drive. We have experienced nice power band after reaching 55 kmph where the top speed we gained about 85 kmph which is marvelous considering 102cc scooter.
The fuel efficiency we experienced on different riding condition was about 48-55kmpl. When we rode rough & harsh it gave 48kmph & with a smooth riding we noticed it in the range of 53-55kmph. And one thing you should consider, our test mule has not expired the sensitive break in period. So the fuel efficiency, acceleration & top speed we experienced will come with a more decent figure with more time.

Hero Pleasure Weakness:
Though we didn’t find any weaknesses in the performance of the scooter however some suggestions in the build could add more value to the scooter.
- Headlight is AC powered. It could have been made to operate with DC voltage.
