Hero Passion Pro
Motor|July 2017

Sometimes meeting a bike after an absence is like meeting a relative you rather not say belonged to the clan.

Dilip Vazirani

Sometimes the meeting is open arms and warm embraces and back-slapping and heartfelt good cheer. A true family reunion.

My recent meeting with the Passion Pro was just this; a truly joyful family reunion. Our (Motor) history with the delightful Passion Pro goes back a long way. Early 2009 we set eye on the Pro for the first time. And loved the bike. The Pro revisit was mid 2010 and we still loved the bike and found that in the interim the Pro had developed some tweaks which brought it closer to our hearts (read Motor Ride Test September 2010). Then, we said of the “same strong enjoyable versatile motorcycle” and of the Passion Pro “becoming a much valued family member“.

It looks like the Passion Pro is here to remain, a faithful and evergreen piece of our motorcycling landscape. I am most certainly glad at the fact. The Passion Pro has the enduring characteristic of solid ruggedness yet presented and delivered in soft terms, a family-friendly personality. You might even, over time, get to trust the Pro so intimately you may park her at home to babysit the … baby. The Passion Pro has come from being the birth child of the long-time Indo-Nippon marriage which was a household name in our market and overseas. In time, the principals went separate ways, the Passion Pro continued its successful path in the market of its birthplace and in Sri Lanka and other territories, and is now offered by Abans Auto (Pvt) Limited for the joy of ownership of Sri Lankan riders.
