Indian two-wheeler giant Hero MotoCorp which had earlier announced that it would be up-dating its product portfolio and it kept its word, as unveiled 15 new models and variants based upon its existing line-up with aesthetic and technological upgrades.  Starting off proceedings is the new variant of its bread and butter bike, the Splendor iSmart. The latest iteration of the Splendor boasts a segment first i3S technology (Idle Stop and Start System) which is a start-stop system that shuts the engine down while the bike is at idling and in neutral, while it automatically starts the engine as soon as the clutch is depressed and first gear is selected.

 

This innovative technology goes on to further improve the already impressive fuel efficiency of the Splendor.  Apart from this clever technology, the Splendor iSmart gets revised styling, which includes new body panels, graphics, paint schemes and refreshed instrumentation cluster. Other offerings like the new Splendor Pro, Super Splendor, Passion Pro HF Dawn and HF Deluxe have also been updated with new graphics, re-styled instruments and side stand indicator. The HF Deluxe Eco now sports air foils on the crash guards, new aerodynamic mirrors and low friction tyres for improved fuel efficiency. In the 125cc-segment, both the Glamour and Glamour FI bikes have been endowed with reworked graphics to make them more visually appealing.

Coming to Scooters, the new Pleasure now comes with linked brakes, which Hero terms as Integrated Braking System (IBS) and is similar to Honda’s Combi Braking System (CBS). The system activates both the front and rear brakes simultaneously thereby improving the braking capacity of the scooter. The new Pleasure has been loaded with features like a mobile charging point, lockable glove box, a light for the underseat storage compartment, combination ignition lock and an indicator for an open seat and side stand. The company also said that it would be soon introducing Integrated Braking System (IBS) in its entire scooter portfolio.
