Hero MotoCorp has increased the price of its popular bike New Passion Pro in India.
This is not the first time that its prices have been increased. The company has also increased its price once before.
Hero launched the new Passion Pro earlier this year, but it was made available during the sale in May due to a lockdown caused by the corona virus epidemic.
What is the new price now?
Since the launch, the price of the bike has increased twice. Earlier its price was increased by Rs 750 and this time it has increased by more than this.
Now the price of drum brake variants of the new Passion Pro has been increased from Rs 65,740 to Rs 66,500 and the price of the disc variant from Rs 67,940 to Rs 68,700.
The company has not given any reason for the increase. It is believed that prices have increased due to increase in input cost.
The look of the new Passion Pro is different
The new Passion Pro’s look launched in February is quite different and nice from the old model. It was launched in four color options.
The bike gets revised headlamps, new H pattern tail lamps and black alloy wheels.
This new Hero Passion Pro is designed on the new diamond frame. Due to this the weight of the bike is less and it gives better performance as well as more mileage.
