Exterior: Hero pleasure is adorned with luxury, comfort and style. The slim and curvy structure makes it ideal for the fairer look. It comes with headlamps, tail light cluster, mudguard and panels. The highly defined body graphics, rear mirrors, rear grip, tail light, and multi reflector headlight completes the look. A large under seat box, large set, inner rack, luggage hook hook are the extra features added to Pleasure. The Honda Activa i has a new indicator and new tail lamp.
