Splendor iSmart BS6 price is almost Rs 7500 or 13 percent higher than the BS4 version but it comes with many changes and features…
Hero has officially launched the Splendor iSmart BS6 in India which has become the country’s first Bharat Stage VI compliant motorcycle from a major manufacturer. The title of India’s first BS6 two-wheeler went to arch rival Honda as it recently started delivering its Activa 125 FI.
Splendor iSmart now comes with a new 113.2 cc fuel injected engine instead of the 109.15 cc of the BS4 iSmart. It is surprising that Hero had to develop a new engine and this already recent 109.15 cc engine was not upgradable (or is it the same engine with a different bore/stroke?).
The new motor now produces slightly lesser power of 9 bhp instead of 9.39 hp of the older model but it peaks at the same 7500 rpm. Torque output has however increased to 9.89 Nm at 5500 rpm from 9 Nm of the older iSmart (at the same rpm). The 2020 Splendor is also equipped with a new diamond frame.
Other changes in the motorcycle include – 15 mm increased suspension travel, higher 180 mm ground clearance and a 36 mm longer wheelbase. It continues to offer i3s technology.
