Hero Honda feels so strongly about this bike that they apparently had no problems calling it the Super Splendor. Then again, the motorcycle company is always looking at improving its product line, which explains why they have taken to great lengths to improve the Super Splendor model past its rather optimistic name.
Designed and developed to be better than ever before, the 2012 Super Splendor carries plenty of improvements, highlighted by a new 125cc "Quantum Core" engine that delivers the best fuel efficiency in the Hero MotoCorp family. This powertrain is capable of hitting 9 horsepower at 7,000 RPM and 10.35 Nm at 4,000 RPM with an impressive top speed of 56 miles per hour.
On top of its engine credentials, the Super Splendor also boasts of a Trip-Meter that measures distance during travel, a peephole to check the engine oil level, a large utility box, a broad muffler with its own heat shield, a multi-reflector headlight and tail-light, a translucent visor, and a pass switch & push cancel indicator switch.
The combination of new engine and new technology has allowed the Super Splendor to live up to its name. Not that it should make a whole lot of difference because the bike is already stellar in its own regard.
