When you have a bike that’s being described as "splendorful," you know the people behind it are doing a great marketing job for the product. Not that the Hero Honda Splendor NXG needs publicity help because it’s already "splendorful" enough on its own.

Designed with new graphics and stickers that complement the bike’s basic body shape, the new Splendor NXG was given aesthetic and aerodynamic touches to improve it’s overall fuel efficiency, as well as its reliability and low cost maintenance. The facelift done on the Splendor NXG highlights the strengths of the bike’s redesign, complete with an attractive meter console and visor, black alloy wheels, and clear lens winkers. These features make it more appealing to a whole new market of motorcycle enthusiasts in India.

As far as performance is concerned, the Hero Honda Splendor NXG comes packed with a pretty impressive powertrain that features a 97.2cc air-cooled, four-stroke single cylinder OHC engine that produces 7.8 horsepower at 7,500 RPM and 8.04 Nm of torque at 4,500 RPM.
