Karthik H, A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.
Hero Motocorp has given the Super Splendor a cosmetic upgrade. The 125 cc commuter bike gets new body graphics.
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.
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).
The 125 cc segment consists of main players like the Bajaj Discover, Honda CB Shine and TVS Phoenix 125 (all of which are available with disc brakes). The Honda CB Shine recently became India’s best-selling 125 cc bike with the 30th lakh unit being rolled out just last week.
