Hero MotoCorp has finally launched the Splendor iSmart in India at Rs 47,250 (ex-showroom Delhi). The bike was first showcased during the dealer conference that was held in Macau last year and later unveiled officially at an event in Gurgaon.
The Splendor iSmart features a new technology that has been developed by the company in-house called the i3S. Its green technology that automatically shuts the engine when idling and turns it on when needed, thus giving more fuel efficiency in congested cities. This technology has been first featured in the Splendor iSmart and will later be introduced in other motorcycles. The Splendor iSmart is powered by a 100-cc air-cooled four stroke single cylinder engine that churns out maximum power of 7.9bhp at 7500 rpm and maximum torque of 8.04Nm at 4500 rpm.
The Splendor iSmart gets an aerodynamic front cowl, stylish rear grab rails along with a luxurious seat texture. It gets a matte black exhaust silencer and an all-weather power start option which is standard across all variants. The bike is available with four colours - Sports Red, Leaf Green, Excellent Blue and Heavy Grey.
"Delivering on our commitment to bring revolutionary technologies that will transform the two-wheeler market, we have launched Splendor iSmart which is a great combination of style, performance and safety. Our customers will love the new i3S technology which makes this motorcycle truly smart, giving them more for every drop of fuel. We have applied for a patent for this technology which may be later extended to several other models.” said Anil Dua, senior vice president, marketing & sales, Hero MotoCorp.
