About Splendor Plus i3s

The Splendor was launched back in 1994 and is the spiritual successor to the CD 100. It continues to clock over a million units a year. The Splendor is available in many different avatars, one of which is the Splendor Plus i3s. Despite being long in the tooth, it has a decent number of standard features. What distinguishes it from the competition is the addition of the i3s technology, which is a start/stop system that contributes to even more fuel saving. Also, in order to commensurate the motorcycle’s existence, Hero has introduced a 25th Anniversary Special Edition variant which receives a black paint scheme with yellow and orange graphics. It also gets blacked-out alloys instead of silver ones and a charging port located on the handlebar as standard. It also gets special badging on the side panels and on the front headlamp cowl.

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 an emphasis on squeezing out maximum efficiency, the engine allows the Splendor Plus to offer decent performance and drivability. Unlike the Splendor Pro, the Plus does not offer adjustable preload for the rear suspension. The Splendor Plus i3s is available in six colour schemes, red, blue, silver, maroon, black with silver, and black with purple. The Hero Splendor Plus competes against the Bajaj CT 100 and the TVS Sport in the hotly contested commuter segment. The price of the Hero Splendor Plus i3s begins from Rs 64,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).
