To rival the Honda CB Shine SP.
Gaadiwaadi reports that the Hero Super Splendor iSmart is scheduled to be unveiled at the 2016 Auto Expo in Greater Noida in February. It is said to be slated for launch in March 2016.
The Super Splendor iSmart is claimed to look similar to the 100 cc Splendor iSmart that was launched in March 2014. The similarities include the graphics, instrument cluster and the i3S (Idle Start and Stop System). The report suggests that the Super Splendor iSmart will use the same engine seen aboard the regular Super Splendor in the same state of tune. It is a 124.7 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces 9.12 PS at 7,000 rpm and 10.35 Nm at 4,000 rpm, that is mated to a four-speed gearbox.
While the standard variant returns an ARAI certified mileage of 83 km/l, the iSmart version is expected to return around 92 km/l. It is expected to be priced close to INR 58,000 (ex-showroom).
