Alright, review time again. This time it is the Hero Honda Passion Plus. Even though I am not a fan of 100cc bikes, I have a special attachment towards Passion, because it was the bike which I decided to buy before I owned the Karizma. Hero Honda’s engineers have really worked well on the design. The bike looks beautiful from every angle. Passion Plus is designed with three things in mind… looks, looks, looks. The sticker design has been changing as the years pass by, but the basic design remains the same.

Passion Plus

Hero Honda claims the Passion Plus to be a ‘Whole new world of style.’ And they are not kidding. When you look at the various colors that the bike has, you will understand that they are serious about it. Gone are the times where you buy a black, red or blue colored bike. Passion comes in six variants of multicolor designs. I feel that the best is ‘black and sport red‘, which has a black doom with red stickers and red tail with black stickers. That’s the color which they use for the TV commercial and the fastest selling variant. If you want to see more variants, visit the official website and click Colors.

The Passion has the same engine as that of the other 100cc counter parts from Hero Honda. There is nothing much to talk about the performace because its just a new wine in an old bottle. When I drove the bike, I felt just like when I tried Splendor NXG, except for the fact that I was driving a better looking bike. The tank is little bigger and better suited for people who feel Splendor is small for them. The dash board features the speedometer with a yellow backdrop as seen in the new Karizma R.

Some of the highlights that I cannot miss to mention are… the all black engine, alloy wheels and body colored hand grips. The black engine nicely merges with the overall look of the bike. I wonder why so many bikes still have the aluminum shaded engine. The bike costs Rs.49,000 on road. You can save Rs.3000 if you do not want the allow wheels, but I do not recommend spoke wheels because it will spoil the beauty of the bike.

If you are a student, never even think of buying Splendor, which is for aged people, he he! 🙂 If you want a bike from one of the largest two-wheeler manufacturers from the world, if you do not want to spend too much and yet have cool looks, if you want great mileage so that you need not keep asking your dad for filling the tank every week (like I do)… then what are you waiting for? Passion Plus is your choice!

    Those who r having that bike .how is that in case of perfomance & mantainance

  • subash

    Hey all,

    to be simple, its worth investing……

  • Sitaram

    I just ordered Passion Plus blindly as we are having CD100 Deluxe and CD100 SS at home. So, now it’s time for next updated version :). I went to the showroom for Passion Pro BUT the look is not good, compare to PLUS. PLUS has better look than PRO. I do not know why HH changed the color patched, worst in PRO. The main advantage in PRO is self start. That’s all. Rest the headlight and indicator changes are minor. So, in total it won’t worth 2K more than PLUS. PLUS costs 49K and the PRO costs 51K.

    I changed my choice bcoz all the rest specifications and features are same. I’ll adjust the Self Start in PLUS with Kick. BUT can not adjust the look.

  • Sitaram

    If anyone says that I’ve taken wrong choice for PLUS in place of PRO then inform me. Waiting for comments. 🙂

  • Sreeni


    Am planning for passion bike, now confuse to go for pro or plus, suggest me if any one is in used of the bike.

    • Shabeer

      Pro is waste bike. Buy passion plus 2008 2009 model. Dnt buy pro.

  • Sitaram

    Sreeni, I suggest you to see the PLUS and PRO and compare it physically once. Pro costs 2K more than Plus only for the Self Start. Rest all the features/qualities are same. Only the changes are in look/style. I purchased Plus only for it’s look and I felt that it’s better than the look of the Pro. If you’ll like the look of the PRO better than the PLUS and also the self start, then you can go for PRO. In case of mileage, Controls, height, weight etc. both are same.

  • Sitaram

    BTW, I got 64 kms mileage in 1st litre and 74 kms in 2nd litre in my new Passion Plus. I’m really satisfied. Waiting for 3rd litre mileage. I’ll give updates for my bike. But, I challenge it’ll not come down from 65 kms in traffic. The main trick is to drive in 40 speed till first 1000 kms. I also expect the mileage will keeping going increasing after some free services. This is the 3rd Hero Honda Bike in our family. The previous CD100 Deluxe and CD100 SS are still rocking. But now the new bikes are really coming with nice colors, alloy rims etc.

  • Satish Kumar.S

    I am planning to buy passion plus please let me know the + points and – points of the bike and let me about engine and mileage usage for the same.


  • premkumar

    Thanks to HeroHonda bike as after Suvega moped which my dad owned in 1984, i used to drive that moped with very jolly and i enjoyed that driving, but after it was gone my dad bought Ind Suzuki in 1985 and sold in 1995 and he purchased Bajan 4s Champion. But I was not satisfied with all the said bikes. But in 2005 my dad gave me a presentation of HERO HONDA PASSION(2005 Model). Really really very superb and excellent, as even my five year son Prajin loves it dearly. Passion bike is one of our FAMILY MEMBER.

  • Arun

    I got my passion plus at 2004. Rode it within 45kmph for the first 1000kms. she is still going good. Less maintenance.
    She still yields 75 kms/litre. Solid.
    Its worth investing in Passion Plus. Salute to Hero Honda Passion Plus.

  • Asif Khan

    I purchsed passoin plus in October 2009. Graphics, performence and specially power as compare to 100 cc is bike is too good. At the cost of Rs 49000/- it is not costly. New Passion Plus desinged specilly for new generation. I suggest passion plus is very good bike at the same cost of other bikes. Thanks for Hero Honda Group.

  • Sureshkuma R

    Hi ,
    I have driven 23000 KMS in Passion Plus. Bought in 2008 April . It’s good bike .
    Getting 55 to 63 Km mileage in City . HH showroom service not good . Simply they do water service Oil change .. No further care .
    But Bike is Very Good in 100 CC range .

    • Prem

      that is gr8 yar …

      • Sureshkumar R

        Hi ,
        Currently My Bike mileage is 55 in High way and 45 to 50 in City . Took a long ride recently ( Thalakad and Yelagiri trip ).

    • *LoneWolf*

      I think your are right about the mileage buddy. During the run-in period of my passion pro i got 63kmpl but in normal driving conditions i am getting more or less 55kmpl. Yes, service centers suck. Use semi-synthetic oil is good for the bike don’t use mineral oil as in Hero honda engine oil.

  • jithin

    passion pro

    hw-45-50 kmpl

    city40-42 kmpl

    • amar

      U r right jithin

  • Saeed


    Hope all viewers are doing well. I purchased a 2nd hand passion plus 2006 model and mostly more than city i ride on highway in perfect gear shifts . I am getting a mileage only abut 50km. I expected at-least 60.. I’m riding in between economy range. I m not satisfied with the mileage. What should i get checked on my bike. I recently gave to service to get oil change, chain tight, carborator cleaning. Sometimes i get misfiring from my bike silencer. Please suggest a solution

    • Harish

      There is a mistake in Your mileage calculation. Please check it again……… Good Luck,

    • santhosh alex

      re tune your bike (ajust the carborator ie reduce the pick power ).and check in ride with top gear

  • sony pradhan

    i love passion plus bcz I suggest passion plus is very good bike at the same cost of other bikes. you can go for PRO. In case of mileage, Controls, height, weight etc. both are same.I m not satisfied with the bike.(deepu)

  • amol

    I bought a passion plus in Feb 2009 From Auto Link Borivali after few days only the Horn stopped working and till date it s not working properly. I last two years i have changed clutch plate, Brake bush, Chain and so many things. Now just came to know before two days that engine has gone and now i will have to spend more 6000/- to redo it. A horrible experience with Hero Honda and Autolink Mumbai. I bought my bike in 50000 but apend more than 12000 in last two years. Please think twice before Buying a Hero Honda bike

  • kiran

    hi, kiran here am planing to buy passion plus 2004 model, pls tel me how much milage wil give can any body suggest me …. is it better bike?….

    • Dip

      Hi Kiran, If driven properly u can expect 65 kms per litre, easily. Make sure that the air pressure in the tyres are proper and u change the Engine Oil every 4000 kms. That’s all. All Hero Honda 100 cc bikes are basically ‘Fill It, Shut it, Forget It’.
      Meanwhile can anyone give me a suggestion? Which one should a person go for? Pasion Pro or Passion Plus or Splendor Pro?

      • *LoneWolf*

        WHAT??? Change oil for every 4000kms!!!! Are you talking about fully synthetic oil? Hero honda mineral oils hardly effective after 1500kms. Even semi-synthetic oils are watery after 2000kms. ‘Fill It, Shut it, Forget It’ is an old story mate. Todays HH bikes are much different. Passion pro only gives 55 average. If you ride very carefully then you can expect 65kmpl and not more. Today’s Hero bikes are not much fuel efficient but reliable as always.
