Inspired by the impulse, Hero showcased the Passion PRO TR at the auto expo. Now Hero Motocorp seems to have launched the model silently in the market. The off roader (yes you read it right) passion pro tr has reached showrooms though the sales is yet to begin. The pseudo off-roader look could be nice addition to instil the charm of the ageing Passion brand. However the acceptance of this pseudo off roader among the mileage and price conscious customers is yet to be seen. Passion PRO TR comes with new off road-tyres,new headlamp grill,engine guard, knee pad on fuel tank, raised front fender, a tyre hugger, cross bar in the handle bar and plate. However the mechanical remains the same. Passion Pro TR shares the same 97.2cc engine which pumps out 7.8PS of peak power at 7500 rpm and 8.04Nm of peak torque at 4500 rpm. The fuel tank with knee pads now gets an increased fuel tank capacity of 12.8 litres. Passion Pro TR is available in three colours – Electric Blue, Sports Red and    Black with Sports Red.
