In the Hero Passion portfolio, the Passion Plus sits between the Passion Pro and the Passion Xtec. Unlike its siblings, the Passion Plus has a smaller engine, as a result, it belongs to the 100cc bandwagon. For your reference, the Passion Pro, which has a bigger engine capacity is marginally cheaper than the Passion Plus. Check out the curated list of Hero bikes on the autoX website.
Furthermore, the Hero Passion Plus is among the bestselling bikes in the segment and the country. Having said that this bike takes on the likes of the Bajaj Platina 100, Honda Shine 100, and the Splendor Plus, among others.
So, let’s see what all the Hero Passion Plus boasts in the following context.

Since this is a budget bike, one shouldn’t expect a long list of new-age offerings from this bike. That said, this homegrown bike incorporates a semi-digital instrument cluster in which the odometer, tripmeter and fuel gauge are all digitally displayed. Further, the cluster also has a low fuel indicator but it misses out on a low fuel indicator as well as a low battery indicator. In addition to that, it misses out on a tachometer.
It neither gets a clock, connected bike technology, Bluetooth, and GPS navigation system. At the same time, especially considering the Passion Plus’s price, it doesn’t have an automatic headlight-on feature.
However, this homegrown 100cc bike has a USB charging port and kick plus electric start type. Last but not least, the Passion Plus has a pillion seat with footrests and grabrails.
As for exterior lighting, this bike has halogen lights at the front, rear and side indicators.
So, these are a few features of this indigenous bike. You can, however, check out the full list of features on the autoX website.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the Hero Passion Plus is built using a double cradle frame, which is cost-effective and robust. It also makes the bike easy to handle. However, as for the figures, this tubular frame chassis supports a 97.2cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, which is tuned to churn out 7.91 bhp at 8000 rpm and 8.05 Nm of peak torque at 6000 rpm. This engine makes the rear wheel spin via a standard four-speed manual gearbox. Like other modern bikes, this bike also has a wet multiplate clutch, which assures smooth gear shifts, while going uphill and at high speeds.

Further, the Hero company recently launched the BS6 phase 2 compliant bike.
It stores its fuel in an 11-litre fuel tank. This bike has a decent fuel tank, which means it can deliver a generous range. A larger fuel tank indicates more range.

Furthermore, you can expect real-world mileage to be around 45 km/l and 50 km/l. These commuter bikes are known for delivering impressive mileage figures. Please note that the actual mileage figures can vary with the combination of engine and transmission, local traffic conditions, topography, and individuals’ riding styles.
Keeping the engine’s performance aside, let’s now jump to the suspension setup of the Hero Passion Plus. The indigenous two-wheeler manufacturer has offered a telescopic fork at the front and a twin-tube shock absorber at the rear. This setup is conventional but it should do the job. It is also worth noting that these homegrown bikes are engineered by keeping the conditions of Indian roads in mind. That said, the Hero Passion Plus can sail through the bumps from potholes and undulations with ease. However, it is always recommended to take a test drive/ride of your preferred vehicle so that you can get a better understanding of rideability.
Aside from that, the Hero Passion Plus has only one variant on offer and this variant’s braking duties are taken care of by dual-drum brakes. Had it been disc-drum brakes, the braking performance could have been better. Considering the Hero Passion’s price, they should have given a few more offerings.
The size of these drum brakes is rated at 130mm. For added safety, the Hero Passion Plus has an integrated braking system (IBS), which is equivalent to a combined braking system (CBS). It’s just that different companies use different monikers. A vehicle with this safety feature can decrease the chances of mishaps, as it can prevent the two-wheeler from skidding or making a stoppie. If this safety feature worked in tandem with dual-disc brakes, it would have been even better.
If ever given such a combination, do try to shell out a bit extra, if you are concerned about the safety.
However, the Passion Plus runs on 18-inch alloy wheels and has a standard tyre profile of 80/100 R18.
