With the Indian government deciding to jump directly to BS6 emission standards from the current BS4, the folks at Hero MotoCorp finally had to give the cashcow its first major hardware upgrade. The engine continues to be a 97.2 cc unit but it now breathes via an electronic fuel-injection system to improve the emission performance. The best-selling commuter also receives an additional catalytic converter to ensure compliance.

The decade old design has been left untouched as expected. Why mend something that is not already broken? However, the company marked the upgrade with all-new decals and dual-tone color themes. Also, the instrument console now gets a engine-check light owing to the addition of FI. There are no other changes to the Splendor Plus.

The air-cooled engine continues to be paired with a 4-speed transmission. The power and torque outputs stand at 8.36 hp and 8.05 Nm respectively. The fuel efficiency figure is estimated to be in the ballpark of 80 kmpl. Some of its rivals claim a higher mileage but that never stopped the Splendor Plus from topping the sales chart before.

I think this would be the first bike I've seen with electronic fuel injection and kick-start.
Also, I'm glad they didn't kill this bike.
