It is unclear if the newly spotted motorcycle will be launched as a new variant of the Hero Passion series.

The publication has posted spyshots of a camouflaged low-displacement bike which is claimed to be the aforementioned model. The iSmart feature is deduced by a blue switch on the RHS switchgear console of the camouflaged prototype, which is the iSmart toggle switch present in the Splendor iSmart.

The 110 cc test mule is equipped with skinny tyres, black 5-spoke alloy wheels, split pillion grab handles, an exhaust can that reminisces the Hero Glamour’s, drum brakes on both wheels and an analog speedometer.

The motorcycle could be powered by the company’s self-developed engine platform, which spawned a 111 cc unit for the Hero Duet and the Hero Maestro Edge scooters. The motor on the scooters produces 8.43 PS of maximum power and 8.30 Nm of peak torque.
