The Splendor is one of the oldest commuter bikes sold in India. Known as a spiritual successor to the CD 100 launched back in 1994, the Splendor range is sold in massive numbers even today, with Hero clocking sales of well over a million a year.
The Splendor range includes a host of upgraded versions with added features and better ergonomics. One such model is the Splendor Pro which was first launched in 2010. Though it feels a bit too long in the tooth, the Splendor Pro is decently loaded with standard features including electric start, alloy wheels and a stylish instrument console.
The bike is powered by a 97cc air-cooled four-stroke single cylinder engine. Producing 7.8PS of power and 8.04Nm of torque, the engine allows the Splendor Pro to offer decent performance and drivability. The real highlight, however, is the fuel efficiency of well over 65kmpl.
On sale for Rs 47,600 (ex-showroom), the Hero Splendor Pro competes against the Bajaj Discover 100 and the TVS Sport in the hotly contested commuter segment. The Splendor PRO is priced at Rs 51,476 (ex-showroom,Delhi)
