Hero Super Splendor BS6: Same Price Other Options
In case you are not planning to buy the Super Splendor, here’s a list of two-wheelers you could have for around the same price
Hero has launched the Super Splendor BS6, which starts from Rs 67,300 and goes all the way up to Rs 70,800 (ex-showroom), in India. However, if you don’t want to spend Rs 70,800 on the Super Splendor, there are more than a couple of great options you can choose from.
Bajaj Pulsar 125: Rs 66,618
Who would have thought that we would get a 125cc Pulsar? But now that it is on sale, it is selling like hot pancakes. The Bajaj Pulsar 125 looks exactly like its bigger sibling, the Pulsar 150. In fact, it costs around Rs 20,000 less than the Pulsar 150 though its 125cc mill makes just 2PS and 2Nm less! So if you are running on a budget, you can go for the Pulsar 125.
TVS NTorq 125 Race Edition: Rs 72,455
If you want a feature-rich two-wheeler, the Super Splendor BS6 is not the right choice for you. Because for around Rs 2,000 more than the Super Splendor, you can have the TVS NTorq 125 Race Edition. TVS has thrown a tonne of features at the NTorq 125. It comes with a fully digital console, Bluetooth connectivity and LED headlamp. So if you are looking for a sporty scooter in that budget, you can go for the NTorq 125.
Honda SP125: Rs 72,900
For the same price that you’d pay for the NTorq 125, you also have the option to go for the new Honda SP125 BS6. We have already ridden the new Honda SP125 and came away pretty impressed by what Honda has done with the motorcycle. It’s feature-rich, the fit and finish level are top notch and it’s reportedly 16 percent more fuel efficient than before. And Honda’s ACG starter, which works like a charm in everyday situations, can be seen here as well.
Okinawa Praise: Rs 71,500
Let’s say you are planning to buy an electric scooter. Which one should you go for in the Rs 70,000 price area? How about the Okinawa Praise, the mid-spec scooter in Okinawa’s lineup? The electric scooter has a claimed range of more than 170km and a top speed of 70kmph. If the Praise’s range is in fact 170km, then it could run for 4-5 days on a single charge! It gets the same set of features you’d find on most other electric two-wheelers. So you get a full digital instrument console, rider modes and LED headlamps.
Suzuki Access 125 BS6 Special Edition: Rs 69,500
For a bit less money than the BS6 Super Splendor, Suzuki has the Access 125 BS6 for you and that too, the top end Special Edition variant. Visually, the BS6 version looks the same as before save for the tweaks to the motor to make it BS6-compliant. If you are under the impression that its power and torque figures might have taken a hit, you couldn’t be more wrong. Because it still retains its 8.7PS power figure as before. So if you are looking for a humble scooter with trusty underpinnings, the Access 125 is the one you should go for.
