About Hero Splendor Plus
The Splendor was launched back in 1994 and is known as the spiritual successor to the CD 100. It is one of the oldest commuter bikes sold in India and continues to clock over a million units a year. The Splendor is available in many different avatars, one of which is the Splendor Plus. Despite being a bit old, the Splendor Plus is decently loaded with standard features. The bike is also offered with optional alloy wheels, and a stylish instrument console.
The bike is powered by the tried and tested 97cc air-cooled four-stroke single cylinder engine, which is also found in a host of other Hero bikes. This engine produces 7.4bhp 7.95Nm of torque. With emphasis on squeezing out maximum efficiency, the engine allows the Splendor Plus to offer decent performance and drivability. Though unlike the Splendor Pro, this bike does not offer adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers.
The Splendor Plus is available in six colour schemes namely Candy Red, Hi Granite Blue, Cloud Silver, Palace Maroon, Black with Silver and Black with Purple. Priced at Rs 43,750 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the base version, the Hero Splendor Plus competes against the Bajaj Discover 100 and the TVS Sport in the hotly contested commuter segment.
