2015 Hero Splendor+ to be launched with ‘power start’ – Spied
Posted on: Oct 27, 2015 - 3:27pm IST
No other change expected.
The 2015 Hero Splendor+ was snapped during its official photo shoot at Magarpatta’s IT zone in Pune. The new model gets the ‘power start’ feature, likely on a new, higher version, as the base variant will retain the kick-start for a price advantage. No other changes are spotted on the 2015 model.
However, with the addition of self-starter, the kerb weight of the motorcycle would increase from the present value of 109 kg. The 12 V 2.5 Ah lead-acid battery would also be replaced with one that has a higher amperage. The 12 V 3 Ah maintenance free battery used on the Hero Splendor Pro is the most likely candidate for the 2015 Splendor+.
The new Hero Splendor+ would continue with the 97.2 cc air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine with OHC, producing 6.15 kW (8.36 PS) at 8,000 rpm and 0.82 Kg-m (8.05 Nm) at 5,000 rpm. The motor is mated to a 4-speed gearbox, no changes here.
Expect the market launch of the new Splendor+ in the coming days.
