Auto Expo Live – Hero Splendor Pro Classic Cafe Racer revealed

Posted on: Feb 6, 2014 - 10:33am IST

What happens when a Cafe Racer (let’s say the Continental GT) mates with a commuter motorcycle? We found out the answer at the Auto Expo 2014 where Hero Motocorp showcased the Hero Splendor Pro Classic Cafe Racer.

The motorcycle is India’s first ever 100 cc Cafe Racer. Power comes from an air cooled, 4-stroke single cylinder OHC 97.2 cc engine which produces 7.7 bhp at 7,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 8.04 Nm at 4,500 rpm. This is matched to a 4-speed gearbox.

On the design front, the Splendor Pro Classic receives a cafe racer styling including new handle bars, a classic round headlight and taillight, a cafe racer cowl and lots of chrome parts such as front and rear fenders, winkers, suspension cover and the round shaped wing mirrors.

Weighing 109 kg, the Splendor Pro Classic features a ground clearance of 159 mm. Suspension duties are handled by telescopic hydraulic shock absorbers at the front and a swingarm with a 5-step adjustable hydraulic shock absorber at the rear.

    It’s Aam Aadmi’s Cafe Racer, why should have only Rich Aadmi have all the fun 😀

    this product shows foolish mind creativity. Atleast they have upgraded the engine capycity. 100cc cafe racer does not stand any chance with other cafe racer around. Atleast 250cc will have done good.

    Guys, take a chill pill! This is a poor man’s bike who can’t afford to buy the real thing (500 plus cc) or operate one with exorbitant gas prices. What do you expect to get for 50K? The real one!!

    Have these people completely lost it???
    First they screwed Karizma, then screwed it again. Then the passion, off-lately the whole portfolio was re-screwed on a group basis, and now this horror.
    if not the engine, nor the frame geometry, nor performance parts (read paioli, brembo n pirelli) nor the handle bar position, atleast should have paid attention to riding posture! which cafe racer has foot-pegs so ahead!
    why this kolaveri di!
