    Splendors are not the same invisible magic ex-calibers anymore. The old “Fill it, shut it and forget it” doesn’t worth a damn at this period of time. Seriously one can get much more out of it in a TVS sport or Bajaj CT100 then this piece of crap. Splendors are selling due to mob mentality and a particular set of people suffering from automotive illiteracy are still believing that splendors have some form of mythical invincibility in them. That’s a load of bullocks. Mileage wise, reliability wise, durability wise these are not much different then TVS, Bajaj or the other Japanese. In-fact the Japanese are making well made products that people completely ignore.

    I request the new buyers to try out the offerings from TVS, Bajaj (only if its not double spark) and other Japanese.
