New Hero Passion Pro 2018 Launched. Price – Rs 55,000 (Expected)
World’s largest automaker, Hero MotoCorp has just launched the new Hero Passion Pro 2018 model with iSmart technology. The new version of the company’s popular commuter motorcycle features an updated design and a more powerful engine. The engine now produces 12% more power along with 12% more torque. It may be noted here that the commuter segment has been the most profitable section of the market for Hero MotoCorp so far. Hence, for now, the company is focussed on coming up with new commuter bikes rather than launching premium motorcycles. It has even come to light that the company has decided to drop all plans for launching the Hero HX250R.
