Updated Powertrain:

The new update has given the Hero Super Splendor a fuel-injected 125 cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine which now churns out 10.87 PS of maximum power at 7,500 rpm and 10.6 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The company claims that overall power output is now up by 19%.

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).
