Updated Transmission:

In the BS 6 avatar, the motorcycle now comes with a 5-speed gearbox, while the previous BS 4 version only came with a 4-speed unit. Addition of one more gear should provide more flexibility across the rev range, and thus more ease of riding.

Updated Chassis:

Apart from the engine, transmission and design, the new Super Splendor also reserves some updates in its frame department. The bike now employs a new and rigid diamond frame. As per the company, the new frame contributes to improved handling and better riding dynamics. Furthermore, the bike also benefits from an increased suspension travel, +15 mm (front) and +7.5 mm (rear). The longer travel result in raised ground clearance which now stands at 180 mm. For the record, it is +30 mm more than before. Apart from that, the bike gets a longer seat (+45 mm) for more comfort and support.

New Brakes:

In its BS 6 avatar, the Hero Super Splendor now also features a disc brake at the front in its Self-Disc Alloy wheel variant. For the uninitiated, the previous model was only featured in a single Drum brake variant. The higher placed, Self-Disc Alloy wheel variant costs 70,800 (ex-showroom Delhi).
