Read about Hero Honda Super Splendor bike review. Hero Honda Super Splendor motorcycle is a top-end motorcycle in India.
After a long hiatus, Hero Honda
made a foray into the 125cc segment with the new
Super Splendor. The new bike retains the hugely
successful Splendor brand name so as to leverage
its massive brand presence.
In contrast to the unconventional looks of its competitors, the Super Splendor preserves the unassuming and bland looks of the legendary Splendor. It sports a large, rectangular, crystal-lens-type headlamp along with a larger, more steeply angled bikini fairing and a tinted, translucent visor for improved lighting of the instrument cluster.
The Super Splendor comes with a new single-cylinder, four-stroke 124.7cc engine that generates a peak power of mere 9 bhp at a high 7,000 rpm. The Super Splendor's engine retains the same horizontal configuration of the original and its refinement comes through with the relatively vibration-free performance.
The suspension set-up in the Super Splendor comprises a telescopic, hydraulic fork at the front and a rectangular section swing arm with hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear. The bike proves to be invaluable in the fuel economy stakes, with tall gear ratios, roller bearings for rocker arms and narrow tyres all working towards the best possible mileage.
