Hero Splendor Pro Review

15 Dec, 2015 10:57 AM

Overview

Hero Splendor is India's largest selling bike, the reason behind which is stated in their tagline 'lage aisa, family jaisa'. It’s the most reliable vehicle available in the market since its launch and the original Splendor has evolved a little bit to be Splendor Pro.

Design and Style

Hero has carried over the same iconic classic design, which no doubt lacks those modern day curves but still stands out of the crowd with its simplicity. Fuel tank has got some serious sticker styling which justifies the classic look. The opening style of the fuel tank differentiates it from every other bike in the market.

Instrument Console

Classic in nature, the Splendor Pro carries the analog arrangement of meters in the console, with a blue illumination at the back of the speedometer. Chrome finish on the outer circles of the console differentiates it from its siblings.

Engine & Performance

Hero powers the bestseller with a 97.2 cc air cooled, 4 stroke single cylinder engine, which uses the parallel APDV technology in the Pro model to increase its efficiency. It produces 8.2 Bhp of power @ 8000 rpm and a torque of 8.05 Nm @ 5000 rpm.

Comfort while Riding

Hero has made it in such a way that the best sitting position is achieved for both the riders and the handlebar position is perfect for every ride, whether long or short. No gear changing problem at short intervals is faced at all. However the seat may feel a bit small for taller individuals.

Mileage

Mileage has always been the topmost concern for the Splendor family and the Pro model has improvements over the earlier model. It return 60-65 kmpl in the city whereas on impressive 70+ kmpl on the highway.

Brakes and Suspension

Splendor Pro uses internal expanding shoe type drum brakes, 130 mm for the front and 110 mm for the rear. Suspension being used is the telescopic hydraulic shock absorber at the front and swing arm with 5 step adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear.

Ride and Handling

Splendor Pro provides a superb ride experience as it rides on 18 inch tyres which are dominating on problem creating pits. Handlebar positioning and the self-start option add up to its charm.

Variants

Splendor Pro comes in five combinations. These are kick start with alloy wheel, kick start with spoke wheel, self-start with alloy wheel, self-start with spoke wheel and self-start with black alloy wheel.

Shades

Hero offers 8 shades namely Black Monotone, Palace Maroon, Candy Blazing Red, Cloud Silver, Excellent Blue, Heavy Grey, Granite Blue and Black purple.

Price

The kick start with alloy wheel and kick start with spoke wheel model costs 47,650 INR and 46,650 respectively. The self-start with alloy wheel and self-start with spoke wheel variant costs 49,600 INR and 48,550 INR respectively. A self-start edition with black alloy wheel costs 50,000 INR.

Verdict

History of the Splendor in Indian market clearly explains how useful it was and will be in the near future. Classic styling with the advanced features makes it all worth the money.
