Hero Splendor Plus Latest Updates
The Hero Splendor Plus has been updated with IBS (Integrated Braking System). IBS is essentially Hero’s jargon for Combined Braking System (CBS). This system applies the front brake partially when the rear brake is applied, thus giving greater confidence to the rider while coming to a halt.
The Hero Splendor Plus is available in two variants: Kick Start and Self Start. Alloy wheels and drum brakes are available as standard on both the variants. The former is priced at Rs 50,860 while the latter costs Rs 52,860, both ex-showroom Delhi. Hero also offers the Splendor Plus with i3S technology which automatically shuts off the engine when idling for a few seconds. It starts the engine back up automatically when the clutch lever is pulled. This helps in conserving fuel, especially in places where there’s a lot of traffic. The i3S model is priced at Rs 54,150, ex-showroom Delhi.
Splendor Plus Overview
The Hero Splendor has been a huge success for the homegrown two-wheeler manufacturer. It has been on sale for around a quarter of a century and played a pivotal role in changing the fortunes of Hero MotoCorp. Since its launch, the Splendor has been the go-to choice for the Indian masses, mostly because of its reliable and frugal motor. Hero’s campaign of ‘fill it, shut it and forget it’ also played a key role in increasing the Splendor’s popularity. Another vital aspect was the brand’s massive dealership and sales network reach across India. Such has been the Splendor’s popularity that the commuter motorcycle is still dominating the sales chart and remains the highest selling two-wheeler in India. Over the years, Hero has launched many new variants of the Splendor and has also given it a more powerful 125cc motor. The Splendor iSmart was also the first Hero product to be equipped with a start-stop system called i3S (Idle Stop-Start System)
