Hero MotoCorp is launching a new commuter bike – the Passion X-Pro 110 – this Diwali.
The company has already started dispatching the bike to its dealers across the country.
The Passion X-Pro 110 would be using the same 110cc engine found in the Honda Dream Yuga and the Honda Twister, both products of its erstwhile partner. The engine offers a peak power output of 9.1 PS and peak torque of 9Nm, and the bike is likely to be equipped with disc brakes, alloy wheels and self start, and will be positioned as a premium commuter bike.
The commuter segment of the market is highly competitive with the incumbents Suzuki Hayate, Bajaj Discover 100, Honda Dream Yuga and CB Twister offering stiff competition. Though Hero MotoCorp will be announcing the prices tomorrow, we believe the Passion X-Pro 110 could be priced around Rs 50,000 to be competitive in its segment.
