Hero is one of the market leader in the 100cc segments in Bangladesh, they have a range of seven 100cc motorcycles for the Bangladeshi market ranging from 1,07,000- 1,48,000 BDT, most of the bikes carries the same engine and transmission but it’s the design and features where the price differences are.

Hero Passion Pro

Hero Passion is one of the most stylish 100cc bikes in Bangladesh and adds to that they bought out Hero Passion Pro which has many exclusive features. One of the first features that you will notice is the engine; Hero is working very hard on the engines for the past two years to bring out more POWER.

The new 102cc engine now produce 8.1 BHP which is around half more than the previous engine, and it delivers the same amount of torque so that even after carrying two middle aged person on it the bike faces no issues with speed. Other than an upgraded engine the bike also features a front 240mm disc brake which is the first time in Bangladesh for Hero. The rear brake is still a 130mm drum.

It’s not the engine or the disc brake that is new with the bike, the bike also gets some additional features like a newly designed tail light, a long silencers guard to help escape the heat, new front look, duel tone body colour scheme, stylish side cowl, 6 spoke cast wheels & an newly design speedometers with has a side stand indicators for safety. The height of the bike is also increased for better riding comfort.

The suspension of the bike is also very strong; the front suspensions are telescopic front shock absorber while the rear suspensions are also hydraulic shock absorbers with 5 step adjustable. Another thing which I notice about the bike is that the bike is light, weighing just 116 kg, which is good for speed and mileage, but Hero missed the trick of not adding tubeless tyres in the bike which should have been an excellent feature like they did with Hero i-Smart.

Overall looking at am impresses and I think the bike will be a good blend of STYLE, POWER & MILEAGE in the 100cc segments. We are waiting for the TEST RIDE REVIEW where we will tell you details about the bike.
