Hero Honda Refreshes Super Splendor

by Deepak on September 5, 2010

In typical Hero Honda ‘ishtyle’, India’s largest manufacturer has revamped their 125cc offering, Super Splendor with brand new and refreshed graphics along with a few cosmetic upgrades. Super Splendor is one of the very few models from the company which did not click in the market to the tune Hero Honda would have liked probably.

Ever since its launch, Super Splendor has been a very moderate performer majorly attributed to the USP-less demeanor it possesses. To try and spell a new round of fresh air without wasting much money and resources, Hero Honda has done what it does regularly with fair conviction!

According to what we can identify from the pics posted on the company’s official website (yes, it’s uploaded), the bike has gone the following changes:

  • NEW GRAPHICS: A new set of vibrant graphics ensure that the fresh feel on the bike is reloaded.
  • NEW FRONT FAIRING: The front bikini fairing has gone a pretty weird change; it has been elongated with a probable hollow ‘smiling’ shape: Looks a little out of place.
  • All BLACK THEME: The bike now wears the all black theme with the engine, front fork and tyres painted black.
  • CHANGED GLOVE BOX: A small horizontal chrome dash has been placed across the tool box over the engine.
  • REDESIGNED VISOR: Front visor has also been redesigned to complement the new theme.
  • CHANGED REAR: The bike’s rear tail light has been altered slightly to make it curvier.
  • METER CONSOLE: Meter console has been given a fresh treatment. It consists of a huge speedometer (odometer + tripmeter) which takes the center stage, separate smaller pods for fuel indicator and tell-tale lights.
  • NEW ALLOY WHEELS: The bike now adorns new set of alloy wheels as well.
  • PRICE: The new bike is priced at Rs 45,950 ex showroom Delhi

Features:

  • Super Splendor produces 9bhp (@ 7k rpm) of maximum power output along with a peak torque of 10.35Nm (@ 4k rpm) from its 124.7cc 4 stroke air cooled ‘Quantum Core’ engine.
  • The bike looks conservative but symbolizes an optimum mix of power and fuel efficiency along with impeccable durability.
  • The new version costs Rs 52,117 on Road Pune and is available for sale.
  • The bike comes in a single variant with drum brakes and self start as standard.
  • Super Splendor also comes with body colored Rear View Mirrors
  • The bike is offered in 7 colored options: Candy Blazing Red, Vibrant Blue, Cloud Silver, Black with Flery Red, Black with Electric Purple, Graphite Black, and Heavy Grey. Amongst these Black with Flery Red looks the most striking which also comes with a red colored grab rail different from the regular black colored on other colors.

Its not a splendor but a glamour variant. HH might had improved the power output to at least 9.5bhp then it would have been more appealing. Any way its a dam good bargain then the pathetic passion pro (7.8 bhp) both costs 55k but be ready to sacrifice mileage upto min 5kmpl.

New Hero Honda Super splender is a very good bike.The bike is good or bad it depends that how do you drive the vehicle.If you drive a bike carefully in initial stage definitely it would give good performaNCE.Would like to mention the following things about SS.
1.Milege is very good.
2.Pickup is not so good .
3.Comfort lable also is very good.
4.Road grip is good.

Overall bike is good. I like everthing about this bike.Would suggest that If you expect good milege from this bike always drive it in Economical range(30 to 50) in initial stage.
Reduce your pickup automaticall Milege would be increased.

I think it’s a great move from herohonda. Super splendor was one of the least selling bike from herohonda. It’s look better than the previous one. It is missing the disc brake option which was in the previous one. It is more comfortable than the old one. The bigger utility box is helpful to keep your documents safely, Spedomeater is coated with chrome.
It gives more than 70KMPL which is very good in these days when we have to pay around Rs.60/L.
And the good thing is that It is one of the most value for money bike in India for a common man at 52,000 on road price.
with this herohonda offer 3years/40,000KM. and good resale value of herohonda.

user kindly tell the exact average of super splendor

Reply

Dibyendu Barua June 28, 2011 at 10:11 am

I purchased HHSS on 29.5.2011. The average is 68kmpl at a speed of 40kmph(mostly driven at this speed). Gear shift from 1st to 2nd is hard, others are smooth.

sandip sahoo June 29, 2011 at 11:47 am

My Super splendor is giving 55 avg mileage. Is it acceptable and expected from a 125 CC engine from HH? If anybody has the right knowledge, please advise.

Completed 1200 Kms and 1 free service.

sandip sahoo June 29, 2011 at 11:58 am

I am not very happy with this bike, but still I say this is a good bike.
BAD STUFF
1. The pick up is not so good.
2. Mileage is only 55 KMPL (still I can live with)
3. In rainy season, you cannot protect your legs from mud and water whatever you do….(pathetic).
4. Road grip is not very strong on wet roads.
GOOD STUFF
1. The look is simple and sober.
2. No extra sound and vibration.
3. Seating is comfortable.
4. 4 year/55000 KM warrenty.
5. After all this is from hero honda, I expect very low maintainance(I am not sure, since I have a new one)

The bike is good and also very smooth.major problem is the bike pickup which is just 9.5bhp.it vibrates at a speed of 70.if u r willing to buy a 125cc then u better go for the glamour it has same specification but much more stable than the splendor.thanx
