Hero MotoCorp has today introduced its Super Splendor BS6 bike. This comes close on the heels of the company’s recent launch of Passion Pro BS-VI and Glamour BSVI a few days ago. In fact, Hero MotoCorp looks to be in a smooth stage of transitioning to BSVI well within the April 1, 2020 mandate. Splendor iSmart, Splendor+, HF Deluxe, Pleasure+ 110, Destini 125 and Maestro Edge 125 BSVI versions have been launched even earlier.
2020 Hero Super Splendor BSVI is already available at dealerships at price of Rs. 67,300 (Self-Drum Alloy wheel), and Rs. 70,800 (Self-Disc Alloy wheel), ex-sh, Delhi. Hero has already stopped BSIV vehicle production at their manufacturing plants.
Malo Le Masson, Head – Global Product Planning, Hero MotoCorp, said,, “Super Splendor has remained one of the most popular motorcycles in India and we are sure this trend will get further strengthened with the new Super Splendor BSVI.”
Super Splendor is revamped for a distinct identity and improved capability. With the latest launch, the manufacturer says almost its entire portfolio is now BS6 emission compliant. 2020 Super Splendor features a 125cc BS-VI Compliant Programmed Fuel Injection engine with XSens Technology for improved riding. The engine delivers 19 percent more power – 10.73 BHP @ 7500 RPM and torque of 10.6 Nm @ 6000 RPM. Prior figures stood at 8.4 PS of power and 11 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with a 5-Speed Gearbox, and is optimised for city and highway riding.
i3S tech makes for a convenient and eco-friendly ride. BS6 Hero Super Splendor sits on an all-new chassis designed for improved manoeuvrability, and a plush ride. Changes to the bike include a rigid diamond frame combined with an increased suspension travel (Front: +15mm; 14% increase, Rear: +7.5mm/10% increase), 180mm ground clearance (+30mm; 20% higher) and a longer seat (+45mm). The revisions are aimed at improving ride comfort for rider and pillions across varied road conditions.
Super Splendor BS6 is available with 240mm front Disc brakes in addition to the Drum brake variant. Combined with an 130mm rear drum brake and CBS tech, it makes for a safer ride. The 90/90-18″ Rear Tyre improve grip, all-day comfort, with real road presence.
Super Splendor BS-VI is available in Dual-Tone paint scheme, flowing design lines, and chrome bits. Metallic Nexus Blue colour is a new colour addition. Colours carried forward include Glaze Black, Heavy Grey, and Candy Blazing Red. In its 2018 version, the bike was available in 5 colours. Deliveries of the motorcycle will commence in the coming days.
