Hero MotoCorp has priced the Passion Pro 110 at Rs 53,189, while the 2018 Passion XPro is priced at Rs 54,189 (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi).

The new Passion twins are powered by Hero's newly developed 109cc air-cooled single cylinder engine that debuted with the Splendor iSmart in mid-2017. The Passion 100cc has been now growing at around 20%.

Hero MotoCorp has a variety of products for the commuter, and with the frequent updates, it's ensured to stay in news as well. "We are confident that the launch of these two new generation Passion 110cc motorcycles will further consolidate our leadership in the domestic motorcycle market". While the Passion Pro gets 5 five paint schemes ñ red, black, silver, grey and blue, the Passion XPro is offered with 5 dual tone colors: Red + Black, Black + Blue, Black + Grey, Silver + Black and Black + Red.

The Passion XPRO is targeted at the youth with its dynamic shrouds, different cowl design and LED tail lamps.

The motorcycle also offers a slew of safety and utility features, such as Digital-Analog meter with digital Fuel Gauge, trip meter, All Time Headlamp On (AHO) and side stand indicator.

Aimed at "today's smart generation", the Passion PRO gets an 11-litre fuel tank with a flush-type cap.

Meanwhile, the 2018 Hero Passion XPro is the sportier of the two motorcycles with small changes that add up to this goal. The Passion XPro is about 3 kg heavier and also sports a longer swingarm.

The company claims a 12 per cent improvement in power over the previous Passion and the bikes now churn out 9.3 bhp at 7500 rpm and 9 Nm of peak torque available at 5500 rpm. Hero's i3S (Idle-Start-Stop-System) technology ensures more efficiency. Other components remain identical too with telescopic forks up front and a twin-shock setup at the rear. The motorcycle is available in both Drum and Disc variants.

The 2018 Hero Passion Pro and Passion XPro compete against the new Bajaj Discover 110, Honda CD Dream Series, Honda Livo, TVS Victor and the likes in this extremely competitive segment.
