I am not sure abt pro but splendor as a product is very pocket friendly budget and low maintenance vehicle. I drove splendor for more than 70k kms in just 4.9 years (total it ran for 1.089 lakhs kms since I brought it second hand). If you increase budget by few thousands then Honda shine is best long term bet (but milleage will be less).
Hero and TVS are the well-known brands that are committed to bringing the mileage oriented vehicles. Star City Plus offers 109.7 cc engine that produces the power of 8.4 PS and Splendor Pro offers 97.2 cc engine that produces the power of 8.36 PS. The ARAI claimed mileage for Star City Plus is of 90 kmph and for Splendor it is 87 kmph. If we talk about the performance the Star City Plus is the winner here as the bike offers you a good ground clearance of 172mm whereas Splendor Pro offers of 159mm which is way higher. Rest we would recommend that may take the test drive for both the vehicles to get a better understanding regarding the bike handling and riding comfort.The long-run performance of any vehicle depends upon how is it maintained. With regular servicing and proper riding can enhance the bikes life.Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts.

Any purchase is called as the best when it fulfills all the requirements and needs of an individual. Hero Splendor Pro is the flagship variant under the Splendor family. Splendor Pro is the bike to buy. It gets newer styling, better instrumentation and more importantly, a new engine that's both more refined and economical. On the other hand, Bajaj Platina offering the ease of a self-start, a peppier engine, better tyres and vastly improved handling. And like all Bajaj bikes, it will be easy and affordable to run and maintain. Here the selection completely depends on one's choice and preference. To pick the best among the two would request you to take the test ride so that you can evaluate as per your desired needs and requirements.

Both the models that you have mentioned here are mileage-driven bikes. As for popularity Splendor Pro is an edge above and would fetch you better resale value.As for performance HF has a lighter body weight hence is less stable when brakes are applied suddenly. However, HF is much more stylish in design and looks than Splendor; this choice is, of course, subjective. Maintenance cost for both the bikes is quite reasonable and spares too readily available in every nook and corner of the country. But servicing at Hero workshop is expensive. Go for either of the bikes but I will suggest Splendor Pro because of its higher resale value. Also, if you are a businessman you can use this bike to ferry your goods as it comes with a rear carrier.
Both the bikes are mileage bikes and are equally popular simply because they'drink less'. Among the two Splendor Pro I would personally recommend Splendor Pro as it has better resale value. Otherwise you can decide in favour of either of them depending upon your personal liking about their looks and design.My suggestion is go for top end model as it comes with auto start facility among others.
I had old splendor of 1999 make and I brought it as second hand in 2006 and sold in 2011. It initially ran for 38k and then I drove it for 65k in 5 years. I used to give me 74kmpl I always did servicing in front of me and in local garage. New splendor gives 70+ kmpl in first few months and then starts showing its real colors and same is the story with other bikes from all vendors.
As you have to purchase the vehicle on EMI in the other state we would suggest visiting the nearest authorised dealership as they might guide you regarding the procedure and further assistance regarding the fiance.

If you are looking for a bike with a slightly more powerful engine then you can go for the TVS Radeon as it gets the new 109.7 cc engine and Halogen with LED DRLs. The Hero Splendor Pro is offered with features like Average Fuel economy indicator, Low Fuel Warning Lamp, Stand Alarm, and Passenger Footrest.Click on the given link for detailed comparison: https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/hero-moto-corp-splendor-pro-vs-tvs-radeon
The ARAI claimed mileage of Hero Passion Pro is 84 Kmpl and that too Hero Splendor Pro is 90 Kmpl. Moreover, the actual mileage totally depends on several factors like driving style, tyre pressure, road condition, etc. In order to improve the mileage, we would suggest you drive slower. Driving fast can reduce your fuel efficiency by up to 33% if you are traveling above 60 mph. It is best to change gears appropriately and match the gear and the RPM carefully.

I did use splendor 1999 model from 2006 to 2011 year and completed more than 70k kms. Not even a single day i felt that bike is underperforming or have poor build quality. Cold start was best where newer bikes used to take at least 3 kicks to start my bike used to start in first kick. Braking was ordinary and lighting was poor but it was built on old framework. Maintenance cost was very low compared to other 100cc bikes. Firing was really great and overall it was best lowest maintenance and family bike to own.
This bike is good for daily ride. Comfort is not too good this bike is for short distance only....and your maximum speed is 110 km/hr but on this speed engine almost blast and bike in the air so ride normal speed and enjoy mileage...
