The 2018 Hero Passion XPro is built around the same double cradle frame as the previous iteration. The new bike gets conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. There’s a disc brake on the front wheel while the rear gets a drum unit. The lower variants will get drum brake on the front wheel to keep costs low.
