2022 Hero Splendor+ XTEC – What’s New

This new futuristic Splendor+ is loaded with lots of goodies. 

Picking the safety features first, the new Splendor+ XTEC is equipped with government mandated Side-Stand Engine Cut-off feature which will not allow the bike to start if the side-stand is not folded away by the rider. Additionally, the bike comes with a Bank- angle Sensor which automatically cuts-off the engine in the event of tip-over.

The biggest change that has brought the Splendor in touch with modern times is the addition of the company’s proprietary XTEC technology. Hero claims that the XTEC enabled fully-digital instrumentation is a segment-first feature which ‘provides the rider with maximum functionality & information’

The fully-digital instrumentation shares vital information with the rider such as – Incoming & Missed call alerts, New message alert, Two trip-meters, Real Time Mileage Indicator (RTMI) and Low fuel indicator. The bike also gets an integrated USB charging port as standard feature. 

Finally, the Splendor+ XTEC is offered in 4 new colour options – Sparkling Blue Beta, Canvas Black, Tornado Grey & Pearl White. Highlighting the novelness of the bike is the addition of a new LED High Intensity Position Lamp (HIPL) which gives the bike its new distinct look. 

New Splendor+ XTEC – What Didn’t Change

Underneath all the new colours and features, the Chassis and the Engine remains untouched.

The Splendor+ XTEC is still powered by the tried-and-tested BS-VI compliant 97.2 cc engine which puts out 7.9 BHP at 7,000 RPM and 8.05 Nm of torque at 6,000 RPM. The engine transfers its power through a 4-speed transmission system. 

The engine still boasts the company’s proprietary i3S Start-Stop technology which provides exemplary fuel efficiency. 

The top of the line regular Splendor is priced at Rs 71,700 which means the company is charging a premium of Rs 1200 for all these added features.
