Hero Splendor Pro Classic is the bike maker's take on the cafe racer.
Hero MotoCorp has showcased the Splendor Pro Classic, the bike maker's version of the cafe racer. As the name suggests, the Hero Splendor Pro Classic borrows mechanical bits from the regular Hero Splendor Pro. It gets a 100cc air-cooled, four-stroke engine which produces 7.7bhp power and 0.81kgm torque. It also gets the Splendor Pro's four-speed gearbox.
The Splendor Pro Classic gets a round headlight and tail-light, a cafe racer cowl and plenty of chrome on the fenders, indicators, rear suspension casing and rear view mirrors. These bits do help give it the look of a retro cafe racer from the '60s, something that has not been seen before in this segment. It remains to be seen whether this kind of styling gains popularity among the masses.
