Hero Splendor iSMART electric start
The Hero Splendor iSMART features a stop and start system commonly found in cars.

It is available in four colors with ‘techno’ graphics: Sports Red, Leaf Green, Excellent Blue and Heavy Grey. However, the talking point of the Splendor iSMART is its idle stop and start system. The system, common to cars, shuts the engine while idling and turns it on when the clutch is pressed.
