2016 Hero Splendor Pro spied with loads of changes
Hero’s position as the market leader can be directly attributed to the company’s entry-level commuter motorcycle Splendor range. The Splendor portfolio accounts for the highest sales in the two-wheeler industry in India.
Hero MotoCorp will be updating the popular Splendor Pro in the country soon and the new model has just been spied in the country for the first time sans any camouflage. The motorcycle carries changes or updates in the form of a new headlight cluster and a newly designed cowl. The changes do not end here and the overall design of the bike has been tweaked in a way to make it look much fresher.
Parts sharing from other bikes of the Hero portfolio is very evident. The exhaust heat shield and grab rails have been picked up directly from the HF Deluxe. The new model has plastic cladding around the fuel filler cap and the conventional steel luggage-mounting point has been given a miss. Though the mud guard and rear turn indicators remain unchanged, the tail lights have been redesigned a bit. The instrument cluster is completely new featuring a divided setup. The three pods have been rounded up with chrome to lend a premium appeal and a new side stand indicator also finds it way on to the motorcycle.
Given that the Indian two-wheeler major has been testing its new engine for a long time, the upcoming Splendor Pro could feature the same. However, the power figure and other specifications are not available as of now. With current prices ranging from Rs. 46,337/- to Rs. 49,288/- (ex-showroom, Mumbai), the new model should be priced in the same bracket if not a bit more. Like the current model, the 2016 Splendor Pro should be able to sell in high numbers given its high fuel efficiency figures and high reliability.
