Key Specs of Super Splendor
Hero Super Splendor Highlights
The prices of the Hero Super Splendor and its variants have been hiked recently. The 125cc commuter bike is now Rs 1,300 more expensive. Check out the full report and the price list here. Hero MotoCorp launched the BS6-compliant Super Splendor back in February 2020 with a fuel-injection motor, a new 5-speed transmission, reworked underpinnings and revised graphics.
Hero Super Splendor Price:
The standard Hero Super Splendor is priced at Rs 69,450 while the front disc variant of the Super Splendor retails at Rs 72,950. That's a price increment of Rs 1,300 for both trims over the previous prices, all ex-showroom Delhi.
Hero Super Splendor Features:
The Hero Super Splendor is a pretty conventional looking commuter motorcycle. The design of the Super Splendor has not changed but Hero has spruced up the commuter motorcycle with new decals and colour options. There are no LED lighting systems to be found on the bike. The analogue console has a large speedometer in the centre with a fuel gauge on its right and several tell tale lights on the left of the speedo, which includes a side stand indicator. Hero’s patented i3S engine start-stop system is also found on the bike.
Hero Super Splendor Engine:
Powering the Hero Super Splendor is a 124.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that puts out 11PS and 10.6Nm. With the BS6 updates, this engine produces 0.4Nm less. A big update on the BS6 version is the inclusion of a 5-speed gearbox, which we believe is borrowed from the Glamour Fi.
Hero Super Splendor Suspension & Brakes:
Hero has tweaked the mechanicals of the BS6 Super Splendor. The diamond frame remains the same. The suspension units though, i.e. the telescopic fork and twin shocks, have been given a little bit extra suspension travel. And with the 180mm of ground clearance, the Super Splendor should be easily capable of tackling any obstacles in its path. You have a choice of a 240mm disc or a 130mm drum brake at the front while a 130mm drum brake at the rear and CBS is common on both trims.
Hero Super Splendor Rivals:
The Hero Super Splendor is for those who are looking for a little more powerful Splendor. This basic 125cc commuter might not have flashy looks or enticing features but it comes stamped with the trademarked Hero trustworthiness. The main rivals of the Super Splendor remain the Honda Shine BS6 and the Bajaj Pulsar 125. For the same price though, you could also get the TVS Ntorq 125, Yamaha Fascino 125 or Suzuki Access 125.

Super Splendor Expert Review
The Super Splendor carries over all the positive traits of the venerable Splendor, but with a bigger heart.
New for the 2018 Super Splendor, apart from the cosmetic changes, is its engine. Hero has kept the Splendor look intact, just subtly redesigning the side panels and tail lamp. The graphics are new and complement the blacked out engine, exhaust, rear shocks and alloy wheels. Sadly, the instrument cluster remains an analogue unit. It includes the speedometer, fuel gauge, neutral and side-stand indicator, and comes with a self starter.
The major highlight is a new 125cc carburetted single-cylinder motor from the new Glamour. It delivers 11.4PS at 7500rpm and 11Nm of torque at 6000rpm, a hike of 2.4PS over the current motor. The new motor is expected to be more fuel efficient thanks to Hero’s i3S start-stop technology.
There are no changes to the single downtube frame though the suspension has been stiffened up. The bike is easy to ride and flickable at slow city speeds. Braking duties are handled by 130mm drum brakes at the front and rear. A front disc brake is not available, even as an option.
Design and Features
The new Hero Super Splendor has been designed with a more fluid, contemporary touch while not straying too much from the Splendor’s utilitarian design language. For starters, the headlamp cowl retains the familiar silhouette but the flyscreen is slightly sportier. The utility box under the fuel tank is now smaller, and the side panels get silver highlights which neatly cover the carburettor. At the rear, the grab rail is merged with the tail-section of the bodywork for a more contemporary look. The graphics on the bodywork is also new, and the bike comes in five colour choices.
The instrument cluster is a three-pod unit with the left-most one housing the neutral, side-stand indicator and high-beam telltale light. The speedometer and the odometer are in the centre pod, whereas the fuel gauge is in the one on the right.
Engine and Performance
Powering this commuter bike is a single-cylinder 124.7cc air-cooled engine that pushes out 11.2PS at 7500rpm and 11Nm at 6500rpm. A 4-speed transmission transfers the power to the rear wheel. The engine’s efficiency is enhanced by i3S start-stop technology which switches off the ignition if it idles for a while. It turns back on when the clutch lever is depressed. This tech should improve fuel efficiency when ridden through roads clogged by traffic. The i3S feature is switchable too.
Braking and Handling
Telescopic forks up front and twin five-step preload adjustable shock absorbers at the rear are mounted on the tubular double cradle frame. The ride quality is relatively stiffer than the previous-gen bike. The chassis allows for agile handling at low speeds but needs to instil more confidence at higher speeds.
Braking is taken care by 130mm drum units on both ends. The bite is good but it lacks feel. Hero does not offer a front disc even as an option. This would’ve improved the bike’s braking performance considerably.
Safety and Features
The new Hero Super Splendor makes do with a 130mm drum brakes on both ends. Hero is likely to introduce Integrated Braking ahead of April 2019 when new safety norms take effect. As per the new norms, the CBS will be compulsory for two-wheelers with engines below 125cc. For added safety, the bike also gets Always Headlamp On (AHO) feature, which improves visibility even during the day time.
