The Splendor Pro Classic is claimed to be the country’s first 100 cc cafe racer. Showcased at the Auto Expo and subsequently at the Nepal Auto Show (NADA), the vintage style commuter gets a single seat, cafe racer cowl instead of a pillion seat, sporty handlebar, circular head- and tail-lights, and a circular instrument pod.

The front and rear mud guards, circular rear view mirrors and rear suspension caps are finished in chrome.

The Splendor Pro Classic is priced at INR 48,650 (ex-showroom Delhi) and is available in Solid Maroon and Carbon Black color options.
