The Hero Super Splendor is powered by 124.7cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 10.72 bhp and a torque of 10.6 Nm.

The Super Splendor is a more premium, larger displacement version of the Splendor. Hero MotoCorp has powered it with a 125cc engine instead of the conventional 100cc and 110cc motors seen in its younger siblings. The Splendor has been selling steadily for Hero for about two decades now and as a brand, it has been important for the company. It is known for its durability, reliability and fuel efficiency.
Besides the larger displacement engine, the Super Splendor also gets slightly fancier styling over its smaller siblings. Interestingly, while updating it for BS6 compliance, Hero also gave it a subtle cosmetic makeover. Besides restyling the headlamp, bikini fairing, fuel tank, under seat and tail panels, the motorcycle also received new set of decals.
At the time of BS6 transition, the commuter also received changes to its dimensions and cycle parts for more comfort and better stability and handling. The Super Splendor is 2,042mm long, 740mm wide and 1,102mm tall. The wheelbase measures 1,273mm with an impressive ground clearance of 180mm. The bike has a fuel tank that can hold 12 litres of petrol. The kerb weight of the bike is 122kg.
Replacing the previous double cradle frame is a new diamond chassis for improved maneuverability. Riding on 18-inch wheels, the Super Splendor is suspended by telescopic forks and dual shock absorbers while braking is handled by drum brakes at both ends with front disc available as an option.
The Super Splendor is powered by a 125cc, fuel-injected engine that produces 10.73bhp of power at 7,500rpm and 10.6Nm of torque at 6,000rpm. This engine was mated to a four-speed gearbox until Hero updated the bike for BS6 norms when a five-speed gearbox was introduced.
The Super Splendor is available in India in two variants including drum brakes and front disc which boast of electric start as standard. The Super Splendor competes with the Bajaj Discover 125 and the Honda CB Shine.
