The updated Hero Super Splendor also gets alloy wheels.

The bike now comes in new colours that include black, blue, grey and red. Apart from the colour upgrades, the bike has black 5-spoke alloy wheels as standard. Taking new features from its siblings, the Super Splendor will get the same side stand warning indicator as the seen on the Splendor i-Smart.

As far as its mechanics are concerned, the Super Splendor retains the same four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled 124.7 cc engine making 9 hp at 7,000 rpm and 9.8 Nm of torque. It is mated to a four-speed gearbox.

Disc brakes have been done away with due to low demand.

Interestingly, Hero Motocorp doesn’t offer the Super Splendor with a disc brake anymore due to low demand. The bike’s front end gets a 130 mm drum brake, just like the rear end. The new Hero Super Splendor is priced at Rs 51,250 (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
