Hero Motocorp has launched two new bikes as the festive season goes underway. The bikemaker has just launched the Splendor Pro Classic, the country's first 100cc class bike with cafe racer styling. It has also launched the Passion Pro TR in the same class, albeit with on off-road characteristics, a first for the class, again.
The Splendor Pro Classic, launched at Rs 48,650 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and Rs 50,833 (ex-showroom, Mumbai), draws power from a air-cooled four-stroke single cylinder OHC engine that delivers maximum power of 8.24bhp at 8000rpm and maximum torque of 0.82kgm at 5000rpm.
To give the Splendor Pro Classic a cafe racer look, the company has given it a classic single seat, a vintage style cafe cowl, a sporty handle bar, round head and taillight and a classic round speedometer. Its front and rear fenders, winkers, suspension cover and round review view mirrors get chrome finish.
The Splendor Pro Classic is available in two color combinations – solid maroon and carbon black.
The Passion Pro TR, on the other hand, lets the riders go off the road with new characteristics like sturdier handlebars with a cross brace, high front fender with hugger, a knee pad for better grip, headlight grill and hand guards for added protection. It also gets a special tyre tread for better road grip, bash plate to shield engine, designer knuckle guard and fuel tank pads.
The Passion Pro TR is powered by an air-cooled, four-stroke single cylinder OHC engine that is tuned to make 7.7bhp at 7500bhp and maximum torque of 0.82 torque at 4500rpm.
The Passion Pro TR is on sale for Rs 51,550 (ex-showroom, Delhi) and at Rs 54,039 (ex-showroom, Mumbai). It is available in electric red, sports red, and black with sports red colours.
Hero Motorcorp closed September with over six lakh in sales, and only hopes to rake in more numbers with the two new offerings.
