Hero Passion 100cc Discontinued In World Due To Poor Sales – Report

Reportedly, Hero Passion Pro 100cc variant has been discontinued in World. However, the bigger XPro with a 110cc engine will be available in the market.

Hero Passion has been in the industry for over a decade now. After the Splendor was launched, Passion was offered a more premium alternative, but with the same engine setup, demanding a slightly higher price.

Till now, it was offered with a 100cc as well as the 110cc engine. The 100cc engine has reportedly been discontinued in World. Some dealerships have confirmed it to Express Drives and only leftover stock is sold at some dealerships. However, the bike is still there on the official website.
