The motorcycle is dearer by just Rs 5,500 over the BS4-compliant version!
  • The Hero Super Splendor BS6 was unveiled at the Hero World 2020 last week.
  • Its fuel-injected 125cc motor makes 0.41PS and 0.4Nm less than the BS4 bike.
  • However, it gets a 5-speed gearbox, better suspension travel on both ends and increased ground clearance.
  • Hero MotoCorp unveiled the Super Splendor BS6 at the Hero World 2020 event in Jaipur last week. Now the brand has launched the motorcycle at a starting price of Rs 67,300 for the base drum variant. The disc brake-equipped version costs Rs 70,800, all prices ex-showroom Delhi. Here’s a price comparison with the older BS4-compliant Super Splendor:

    Premium for the BS6-compliant model


    Rs 67,300

    Rs 61,800

    Rs 5,500


    Rs 70,800



    For such a small premium, you get a fuel-injected motor with a new 5-speed gearbox, new chassis which has resulted in greater ground clearance (30mm more, at 180mm) and longer travel suspension (14 per cent more up front and 10 per cent at the rear). Hero has also equipped the Super Splendor BS6 with an optional front 240mm disc for the first time.

    These changes should more than make up for the lack in power and torque compared to the previous generation model. It makes 10.87PS at 7500rpm and 10.6Nm at 6000rpm, which is 0.41PS and 0.4Nm less than the BS4-compliant Super Splendor. However, the peak torque arrives at 500rpm earlier. This coupled with the reduced kerb weight (122kg kerb, as opposed to the BS4 model’s 125kg) should make the bike a little peppier.

    In terms of rivals, the Hero Super Splendor BS6 goes head-to-head against the recently-launched Honda Shine BS6, which starts from Rs 67,857 (ex-Delhi). Here’s the company’s statement regarding the launch:

    Press Release:


    Reiterating its commitment to an exciting and comprehensive BS-VI product portfolio, Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters, today launched the iconic Super Splendor in its BS-VI version.

    Commenting on the Super Splendor BS-VI, Malo Le Masson, Head – Global Product Planning, Hero MotoCorp, said, “The Super Splendor has remained one of the most popular motorcycles in India and we are sure this trend will get further strengthened with the new Super Splendor BS-VI. The motorcycle has been revamped to give it a distinct identity and make it more capable than ever. With this launch, almost our entire portfolio has now migrated to the new emission regime.”


    More Capable than ever

    The new Super Splendor comes with an all-new 125cc BS-VI Compliant Programmed Fuel Injection engine with XSens Technology, providing a superior ride experience to the customer. It delivers 19% more power - 10.73 BHP @ 7500 RPM and an impressive torque of 10.6 Nm @ 6000 RPM. The engine is mated to an all-new 5-Speed Gearbox offering a stress-free ride on the highways as well as in the city. The revolutionary i3S technology provides a convenient and an eco-friendly ride.

The rigid diamond frame combined with an increased suspension travel (Front: +15mm; 14% increase, Rear: +7.5mm/10% increase), class-leading 180mm ground clearance (+30mm; 20% higher) and a longer seat (+45mm) guarantee a comfortable ride over any road condition, for the rider as well as the pillion.

    For the first time, in the BS-VI guise, the Super Splendor is also available with 240mm front Disc brakes in addition to the Drum brake variant. Combined with an 130mm rear drum brake and CBS technology it provides a safer ride. The 90/90-18" Rear Tyre provides a confident grip, all-day comfort with real road presence.
