Hero Pleasure 2017 – First BS4 Scooter In Bangladesh
Niloy Motors launched Hero Pleasure 2017 in Bangladesh. Hero Pleasure is a scooter from the company which gained much popularity among the scooter lovers in Bangladesh. Two years ago we tested the bike and published a review at BikeBD website. Hero Pleasure is the first BS4 scooter in Bangladesh.
The new Hero Pleasure 2017 comes with some added features:
- Always Headlight On (AHO) technology.
- BS IV engine, for less pollution in the air.
- Sporty & new body graphics.
- New Paint Scheme.
- Integrated braking system
- Tubeless tyres.
- Side stand indicator.
- Boot light at under seat luggage box.
- Front storage compartment with mobile charger.
The overall design of the Hero Pleasure 2017 remains unchanged, but the new sporty graphics & new color scheme added more maturity in the model. Even though the engine is upgraded in BS IV compliment the engine power didn’t went down, if anything the power & torque figure increased from older version.
The new Hero Pleasure 2017 comes powered by the same 102cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that can churn out 6.9 BHP of power and 8.1Nm of TORQUE, mated to a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission. Because of this auto gear & clutch it makes it easy to ride in city & also helps new riders to learn to ride scooter easily. The engine is now BS-IV compliant which emits less pollution to the environment.
Suspensions & brakes didn’t changed from the previous models, but the best feature about the bike is its integrated braking system. In this system both the brakes are applied once the rear brake lever is pressed which helps for better braking & ensure more safety for the rider.
During our test two years ago we achieved a top speed of 85 kmph & a mileage of 48-55 kmpl. We still haven’t tested the 2017 version but we are expecting that both the speed & mileage figure to go up for the updated engine.
We saw that both the pillion & rider seat is comfortable & with enough leg room & storage capacity this is a good scooter for both male & female who wants a daily commuting scooter for their offices.
