Hero’s Splendor Plus ‘25 years special edition’ model has begun reaching dealerships in Delhi and Haryana. According to dealers, the special-edition model of the popular commuter has been priced at Rs 55,600, which means it costs Rs 1,000 more than the top-spec Splendor Plus variant (Rs 54,600, ex-showroom, Delhi).
The 25 years special-edition variant is based on the top-spec variant of the Splendor Plus which means it gets an electric starter, alloy wheels and i3s (Hero's auto start-stop tech). A special black-and-gold colour scheme, blacked-out engine casing and wheels, a USB charger and badges indicate it’s the 25 years special edition variant.
Everything else, however, is expected to remain the same as the standard model. This includes the 97.2cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that makes 8.3hp and 8Nm of torque. The gearbox will also remain the same as the 4-speed unit found on the standard model.
The 25 years special edition model, like the recently updated Splendor Plus, will also come equipped with Hero’s integrated braking system (IBS), which is now a mandatory feature as per updated safety norms.
