India’s favorite Hero motorcycle finally gets digital instrumentation!
Hero motocorp has launched the latest iteration of Splendor- the Hero Splendor Plus XTEC. The Splendor+, greatly admired for its VFM nature, gets the XTEC pack with the upgrade. The new motorcycle is priced from Rs 72,900, ex-showroom, and comes with a 5-year warranty too.
The XTEC, as you know is the newest digital instrumentation/ connectivity pack from Hero Motocorp. Featuring Bluetooth-based smartphone connectivity, it was previously seen on models like the new Destini 125, Pleasure+ 110, Maestro Edge 125, and Glamour 125. The Splendor Plus now gets an all-digital meter cluster with Bluetooth connectivity, offering services like call and SMS alerts, Realtime mileage indicator, low fuel indicator, and more.
Other notable changes on the 2022 Hero Splendor+ include LED high-intensity position lamps, and new body graphics. The overall shape and design remain the same as before.
An integrated USB charger, side-stand visual indication and engine cut-off, and the Hero i3S technology are also offered on the new motorcycle. There is also an integrated bank angle sensor, which would shut the engine down during a fall.
Powering the new Splendor+ XTEC is a 97.2cc, BS6 engine that churns out 7.9 hp and 8.05 Nm. With Hero’s i3S technology, the motorcycle would have remarkable fuel efficiency too.
