Claimed to be “more capable than ever”, the new BS6 Hero Super Splendor derives its power from an all-new 125cc PFI (Programmed Fuel Injection) engine boosted with XSens technology. The power output of the bike has been increased by 19%. Now, the motor pumps out a peak power of 10.73bhp at 7,500rpm against a peak torque of 10.6Nm at 6,000rpm.
Transmission duties are done by a new 5-speed gearbox. Hero’s i3S technology automatically switches off the engine when not required and turns it on when you press the clutch. Built on an all-new chassis, the BS6 Hero Super Splendor ensures “greater maneuverability and a plush ride”. The bikemaker has increased its front and rear suspension travel by 15mm and 7.5mm respectively. Read – Hero eMaestro Electric Scooter Under Development
