The Splendor Plus is offered in three variants: kick start with alloy wheel, self-start with alloy wheel, and self-start with i3S. You also get a couple of new paint options which differentiate it from the BS4 model. That aside, the rest of the motorcycle looks similar to the previous model.

Hero Splendor Plus Specifications
The Splendor Plus is powered by the tried-and-tested 97.2cc single-cylinder engine. It puts out 8PS and 8.05Nm, 0.36PS less than the BS4 version. The motor is housed in a double downtube cradle frame, suspended on a conventional telescopic fork and twin preload-adjustable hydraulic shocks. The bike rides on 18-inch wheels with 130mm drum brakes at both ends. Sadly, there’s no front disc on offer. The Splendor Plus BS6 weighs 110kg in kick-start form and 112kg in self-start version, with its 9.8-litre fuel tank filled to the brim.
Hero Splendor Plus Design
The Splendor’s no-nonsense bodywork and design, featuring a bikini fairing and a rectangular headlight, have remained unchanged in the BS6 iteration. The only distinct aspect is the additional catalytic converter on the exhaust system and the new black/red paint scheme.
Hero Splendor Plus Features
Being a basic commuter motorcycle, the Splendor isn’t exactly feature-rich. You get alloy wheels as standard and the option of an electric start system and Hero’s i3S stop-start system which helps keep the bike as economical as possible. A CBS system and a preload-adjustable rear suspension come standard. Like the rest of the bike, the analogue instrument cluster is also very basic.
Hero Splendor Plus Competitors
The 100cc commuter segment is quite busy with competition coming from the likes of the Bajaj CT100, Platina 100 and TVS Sport, all of which have already been updated to meet BS6 standards.
Hero Splendor Plus Variants
The Splendor’s top-spec variant, which gets an electric start and Hero’s i3S stop-start system, will set you back by Rs 65,295. If you skip i3S but opt for the electric starter, the Splendor Plus will cost you Rs 64,085 and for the base variant with kick start and no i3S you’ll have to shell out Rs 64,085…Read More
