Hero Super Splendor Highlights
Hero has finally launched the Super Splendor BS6 in India. The updated 125cc motorcycle is available in two variants -- drum and disc. While the drum variant is priced at Rs 67,300, the disc brake variant retails for Rs 70,800 (both prices ex-showroom). To freshen up things a bit, Hero has added new paint schemes and decals. The BS6-compliant 124.7cc engine belts out around 11PS of power at 7500rpm, which is similar to its predecessor. However, peak torque has increased by 0.4Nm, at 10.6Nm. Transmission duties are now handled by a new 5-speed gearbox. Suspension responsibilities are handled by telescopic forks at the front and a five-step adjustable hydraulic shock absorber at the rear. Hero claims the travel has increased by 14 per cent at the front and 9 per cent at the rear. In terms of competition, it goes up against the Honda SP125 and the Bajaj Pulsar 125.

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.
