Here's how the Honda CG125 stacks up against India’s most popular commuter

Hero-Honda CD100's 125cc Chinese version, the Honda CG125, recently got a special edition variant. So let's see how the retro motorcycle fares against its former Indian partner, Hero MotoCorp’s Splendor+ via crisp images.

Starting with the design, while Honda CG125 gets a proper retro look, the Hero Splendor+ does feature a few modern design elements.

The fascia of both the bikes mounts a rectangular headlight with square turn indicators. However, the Hero Splendor+ features a cowl around the headlight assembly.

Moving to the side, you'll see that the design of both the bikes looks almost the same. But there are a few differences: the Hero Splendor+ gets a bigger 9.8-litre fuel tank as compared to the 8.2-litre unit on the Honda CG125. The Hero Splendor+ also gets a silver finish on its powertrain and a chrome exhaust cover, while the Honda CG125 features a blacked-out treatment.

The tail section of both the bikes looks lean, and they feature a rectangular-shaped tail light.

On the features front, the Splendor+ is offered with i3S start-stop technology that switches off the engine as soon as the bike comes to a halt and also in case of a crash. The Hero Splendor+ sports twin circular dials for the speedometer and the fuel gauge and a side-stand indicator. The CG125, on the other hand, only features a rectangular dash that gets a speedometer, tachometer and tell-tale lights.

Powering the Splendor+ is a 97.2cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that puts out 8.02PS and 8.05Nm. The CG125 draws power from a 125cc single-cylinder air-cooled motor that delivers 9.92PS and 9.5Nm.
