As far as mechanicals are concerned, the new Super Splendor BS 6 draws power from a 125 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine with Programmed Fuel Injection. The company says that this unit comes kitted with the XSens technology which was also seen in its several BS 6 compliant products launched in the past.
The engine now delivers 10.87 PS of maximum power at 7,500 rpm and 10.6 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. In comparison to the previous unit, the power is now up by 19%, the company says. Also, it features Hero's patent i3S technology and comes teamed up with a 5-speed gearbox unit.
Some other key updates for the 2020 Super Splendor BS 6 include an all-new chassis which is claimed to deliver improved ride and performance. Also, the suspension travel has been increased by +15 mm (front) and +7.5 mm (rear). The heightened suspension travel directly contributes to a 20% higher ground clearance which is now up by +30 mm (to 180 mm). Moreover, it now also sports a longer seat (+45 mm) for extended support and comfort.
