Hero MotoCorp has increased prices of the recently launched Super Splendor. Like the Passion Pro, even the Super Splendor is an all-new product and has quite a reputation in the rural markets. When launched, a couple of months ago, Hero had priced the Super Splendor at Rs 67,300 for the self-drum version while the self-disc price was Rs 70,800, ex-showroom. Now, the revised prices are Rs 68,150 and Rs 71,650, respectively. These prices are Rs 850 more than before.
The new Super Splendor has got a broader seat and a slightly revised styling. Hero hasn’t strayed too far from how the Super Splendor looked from before. We understand this is due to the fact that the audience wants a newness in the product but not too much. The ground clearance is now 180mm whereas the front suspension gets a 14 per cent increase in travel. 18-inch black alloy wheels are standard too while the instrument console is an analogue unit.
As far as the brakes are concerned, 130mm drums are standard while a 230mm disc is optional. Hero provides IBS as standard with the Super Splendor. The new engine makes 10.72hp of power and 10.6Nm. Hero is using a 5-speed new gearbox with the Super Splendor. There is the proprietary i3S tech as well on offer, for better fuel economy and lower emissions. Hero offers a five year warranty with the Super Splendor 125.
If you are living in the city, there is the more glamourous Glamour model. It too is all-new and gets the same engine. It has more features too. Hero’s upcoming launches include the reintroduction of the Xpulse model in BS6. There is also the all-new Xtreme 160R, a model that will fight with the Bajaj Pulsar NS160. As for the Super Splendor, it competes with the Honda Shine. The Shine too is an all-new model and stacks up in specs with the Super Splendor.
