Not only are they cost effective but provide better fuel efficiency with low maintenance costs. And the latest bike in the market that is turning he heads of customers is the HeroSuper Splendor. If you are looking to bring a new bike home, we’re sure you must’ve already heard about it.
The brand Splendor has been steadily selling for Hero for about two decades now. Splendor is important for Hero and it is known for its durability, reliability and fuel efficiency. But what’s different about the new model? It is better looking and has a better performance than the previous models.
Let’s dive right in and get into the nitty-gritty of Hero’s brand new bike.

The mileage is 58kmpl and can go up to 75kmpl as reported by bike owners. Compared to other commuter bikes in the market, Hero Super Splendor has 70% better mileage.
The Hero Splendor comes in two variants – Super Splendor Drum Alloy and Super Splendor Disc Alloy. The Disc variant boasts of an electric start as a standard.
It has a 124.7cc BS6, air-cooled engine that powers 10.72 bhp. Earlier, the engine was paired with a four-speed gearbox. But, keeping up with BS6 norms, Hero has comprehensively updated the motorcycle and introduced a five-speed gearbox. The engine is unlike the conventional ones of 100cc and 110cc motors that were seen in its predecessors.
The engine’s efficiency is enhanced by i3S start-stop technology which switches off the ignition if it is idle for long. It turns back on when the clutch lever is depressed. The i3S feature of Super Splendor is switchable.
