The Hero Splendor+ retains the old Honda-developed engine and gains fuel injection.

The Hero Splendor+ retains the nearly three-decade-old Honda-developed 97.2 cc engine. However, the engine is now fitted with fuel injection, which the folks at Hero MotoCorp call ‘XSens technology’. Coupled to a 4-speed gearbox, the BS-VI compliant engine produces 8.02 PS of power and 8.05 Nm of torque. In comparison, the outgoing BS-IV version produced 8.36 PS of power. The torque output is the same, but in the BS-VI version, it peaks at higher engine speed.

Other changes to the BS-VI Hero Splendor+ include a new Solid Black paint scheme that is available in a combination of Purple, Grey, Red and three palette combination of Red-Black-Purple along with Ebony Grey paintwork with Green Finish. Besides that, the motorcycle gets new decals.

Braking duties in the Hero Splendor+ are administered by drum brakes, which are assisted by an Integrated Braking System. The motorcycle is shod with alloy wheels as standard and will be retailed in three variants which include kick-start, self-start, and self-start with i3S. The range-topping variant’s i3S technology helps in saving fuel by switching off the engine during stop and go traffic, say at a traffic signal. The engine is kicked back to life by simply engaging the clutch.
