Hero Motors has just come off the launch of 3 brand new products. The Hero Xtreme S, Hero Xpulse 200, Hero XPulse 200T. Hero has expanded its product portfolio to the sports, touring and off-road segments with that. The 2019 Hero Pleasure is the latest product to be launched now. This launch is coming in less than a week of the 200cc motorcycles shown by Hero. The company has now focused back on it’s an aging scooter, the Pleasure. The bike has always been famous among beginners, college students, girls and old people. Now the new scooter will also aim to do the same. While the company has been tight-lipped about the scooter, the 2019 Hero Pleasure was last seen in spy shots of its TVC commercial with Alia Bhatt.
This time with the Hero Pleasure we expect the bike to get DRLs, ABS, a new instrument cluster, a new seat, better ergonomics in terms of USB chargers in the boot and glovebox. The scooter is an important bike for Hero who will wish that this bike also now get competitive with the Honda Activa and give the competition sleepless nights. So what else is in store? Let’s find out. Scroll down for more.

2019 Hero Pleasure Design
The 2019 Hero Pleasure looks more modern thanks to the new front apron. The front also integrates the indicators and gets a retro-style or Vespa-style square headlamp. The side looks sleeker and the brushed silver plastic inserts on them lend the scooter a premium look which the scooter wants to portray to take on the Activa. At the rear, it is safe to assume that there will be a redesigned LED tail lamp. A new instrument console will also come. The will be a disc brake option with ABS on sale along with a CBS unit.

Some of the new features that we will see and some that will continue on the Hero Pleasure, are the following –
- AHO(Always Headlamp On)
