Snapshot: Hero MotoCorp has launched the Splendor iSmart in India
Hero Motocorp launched the Splendor iSmart today in India. The Splendor iSmart is India's first bike that features an engine start-stop system, to improve the fuel efficiency during urban commuting. The company has got the new in-house development patented as i3S (idle start-stop system) on its name. The new eco-friendly technology works as an engine start-stop system, which we have generally seen on high-end cars. The i3S shuts the engine if it idles for more then 30 seconds and brings it back to life as soon as the rider depresses the clutch. The system can also be turned off with a switch on the handlebar.
The Splendor iSmart is powered by company's tried and tested 97.2 cc engine, which generates 7.69 BHP of power at 7500 RPM and 8.04 Nm of torque at 4500 RPM. The basic design is similar to other Splendors but a subtle revision has been given to major body parts like the front cowl and rear grab rails. The alloys and silencer are painted in matte black finish, which looks attractive with new dual tone body color schemes. The bike is available in four colors - Sports Red, Leaf Green, Excellent Blue and Heavy Grey. The Hero MotoCorp iSmart is priced at-
New Delhi - Rs. 47,250/-
Mumbai - Rs. 49,967/-
Chennai - Rs. 48,192/-
Kolkata - Rs. 48,549/- (All prices are ex-showroom).
