Expected to cost under INR 55,000.
After being spotted in dealerships, further reports suggest that the Hero Splendor iSmart 110 cc bike could be up for a launch as early as next week. With the standard 100 cc Splendor costing Rs 50,580 (ex-showroom, New Delhi), reports also suggest that the country's largest motorcycle manufacturer could be targeting a Rs 55,000 price point for the new variant.
The Splendor i-Smart with a 110cc engine was first seen at the 2016 Auto Expo. The air-cooled, single cylinder, 110cc engine delivers 9.1 PS of power at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 9 Nm at 5,500 rpm. Paired to this new engine is a standard 4-speed gearbox. Reports suggest that the bike could be targeting mileage of around 100 kmpl.
Hero Motocorp in June 2016 sold 5,49,533 units. The figure is roughly 7,000 units more than the 5,42,362 units it had sold in the previous year for the same month. With the upcoming festive season and new launches, this number is likely to go up.
