Splendor latest prices see a uniform increment across all variants. The effective BS4 to BS6 hike becomes around 15 percent, in seven months!
Hero launched Bharat Stage 6 compliant versions of its high sellers Passion Pro and Splendor in February in India. Both the motorcycles received fuel injection as a part of the upgrade. While Splendor continues with the same old 97 cc engine, Passion gets a bigger 110 cc motor.
In a latest update, Hero has increased prices of the Splendor BS6 again while the Passion remains unchanged. Here are the latest prices.

As you can see the latest price hike on the Splendor is a nominal Rs 150 which has taken the effective increment to Rs 900 across all the variants – an increase of about 1.5 percent. However, if we add up the 12-13 percent BS4 to BS6 increment, then this effective increment becomes a very significant ~15+ percent. The reason of the latest price hike has not been revealed by Hero.
Apart from minor changes to the specs, the Passion Pro BS6 has received significant cosmetic changes in the form of new colors and a fresher headlamp. Splendor continues with the tried and tested styling without a lot of bling.
