Malo Le Masson, Head of Strategy and Global Product Planning, Hero MotoCorp, said, “Hero Splendor is the most popular and the best-selling motorcycle in India, a true companion to millions across India. It has been an icon for almost three decades and will still continue to inspire many with the launch of the Splendor+ XTEC model, adding technologically advanced features and a smart modern design. This is the latest model complementing the XTEC technology umbrella that has been an overwhelming success since its launch on the Hero Glamour 125, Pleasure+ 110 and Destini 125.”
Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Growth Officer, Hero MotoCorp, said, “Hero Splendor has been a trend-setter for decades. The motorcycle has been impressing a diverse range of customers with its trust, style, performance and its enhanced range of comfort features. We are certain, Hero Splendor+ XTEC will yet again set a new benchmark – in terms of both technology and visual style and deliver on the brand promise of comfort and safety.”
The Splendor+ XTEC gets a long list of new features, including call and SMS alerts, real time mileage indicator, low fuel indicator, LED high intensity position lamp, and exclusive graphics. The Splendor+ XTEC also comes with an integrated USB charger, side-stand engine cut-off, and Hero MotoCorp’s idle start-stop system (i3S).
The Hero Splendor+ Xtec is powered by an air-cooled 97.2cc BS-VI compliant, single-cylinder engine that produces 7.9bhp at 7,000rpm and 8.05Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm. The engine features Hero’s I3S engine-start-stop technology and is paired to a 4-speed gearbox.
The new Hero Splendor+ Xtec features telescopic front forks and a mono shock at the rear to take care of the rough stuff. Braking duties on the Splendor+ Xtec are taken care of by drum brakes on both wheels.
