The Hero Splendor Plus is one of the highest-selling motorcycles in the country. The two-wheeler manufacturer has now launched an updated iteration of the motorcycle with the new Xtec badge, which aids it with a slew of updates over the standard model. Priced from Rs 72,900 (ex-showroom), the Hero Splendor Plus Xtec features an all-digital instrument cluster that is Bluetooth-compatible for call, text and navigation alerts. The cockpit further comes with a low fuel indicator and real-time mileage indicator. Other changes include an LED DRL placed over the headlamp cluster and exclusive graphics.
A set of new colours are a part of the update for the 2022 Splendor Plus XTEC, namely Sparkling Beta Blue, Tornado Grey, Canvas Black, and Pearl White. For added convenience, Hero MotoCorp has intelligently placed a USB charger on the motorcycle. Mechanically, it remains unchanged. Power comes from a 97.2 cc single-cylinder motor, belting out 7.9 bhp against 8.05 Nm, and it is paired to a 4-speed gearbox.
