Hero Passion Pro Insurance Overview
The Passion Pro BS6 is a 113cc motorcycle from Hero, one of India's best-known and most popular bike manufacturers. It's available in the price range of Rs 66,500–68,700 after the latest price revision in November 2020.
The BS6-compliant Passion Pro comes with alloy wheels. This motorcycle is available in five colours: Glaze Black, Sports Red, Moon Yellow, Heavy Grey Metallic, and Techno Blue.
Let's take a look at the bike's key features and how you can get your Hero bike insurance.
Key features of the Hero Passion Pro
- The Hero Passion Pro's new BS6 113cc engine matched to a 4-speed gearbox delivers a power of 9.02 BHP, along with a Torque On Demand of 9.89 Nm at 5000 rpm. This is around 9% more than its predecessor, the Hero Passion XPro. The single-cylinder engine is air-cooled and has xSens with a programmed fuel injection system.
- The new Passion Pro has seen a substantial makeover. It comes equipped with an AutoSail technology that helps to prevent the bike from stalling in traffic, by reducing gear shifts. The bike's i3S sensor stops its engine automatically when it is idle.
- Also used in the Passion Pro BS6 is a throttle position sensor that monitors throttle twist, and a manifold absolute pressure sensor that senses changes to engine load. The latter helps while climbing uphill.
- An intake air temperature sensor monitors the ambient air temperature, to help you start in different weather conditions. A vehicle speed sensor to sense changing load at the rear wheel provides better pulling power for varying loads.
- One can expect a mileage of 60-65 kmpl on this bike.
- The Hero Passion Pro comes with a combined braking system (CBS).
- The BS6 version sees a 15 mm increase in ground clearance, ensuring a smoother ride. The front suspension has been raised by 15 mm.
- The bike also features a brighter headlamp and triple-tone graphics on the fuel tank. The model's instrument cluster is semi-digital.
- The bike comes with a 5-year warranty.
Insuring your Hero Passion Pro
Another important aspect covered by insurance is legal. Third-party insurance cover is mandatory in India. This covers expenses due to any damage to property, injury, or death to a third party arising out of an accident caused by your vehicle.
Compare various bike insurance policies and look at add-ons that you think would matter to you. Insurance companies offer add-ons like
- Zero depreciation cover,
- Add-on passenger cover, and
- Consumables cover, among others.
Spend some time checking out insurance companies before deciding on the right one for you. Apart from going through the policy's features and benefits, it is vital to check the insurance firm's claim payment capacity, claim settlement ration, and service.
