The Hero Splendor Plus Black & Accent Edition gets an all-black theme with black tires, black engine, and black chain cover at no premium cost when compared to the Splendor+ i3s variant. It also gets three customizable graphics options – Beetle Red, Firefly Golden, and Bumble Bee Yellow. These three graphics are a result of the company’s innovative ‘Hero CoLabs’ contest in which out of the thousands of entries, these top 3 designs have been put into production.
Customers can choose from any of the three graphics at an added cost of Rs 899. They can also choose to purchase the motorcycle without any graphics as well. It totally depends upon the buyer whether they want their new motorcycle with these decals or not. Apart from this, buyers can also choose to buy the full bike kit which includes the graphics, 3D Hero logo, and rim tapes for Rs 1,399.
As it is a special edition variant, hence, the motorcycle remains identical to the Splendor+ i3S trim. It uses the same 97.2cc BS6 fuel-injected (FI), air-cooled engine with i3S technology that churns 8.02PS of power and 8.05Nm of peak torque.
As far as the underpinnings are concerned, the double-cradle frame houses a telescopic fork at the front and preload-adjustable twin shocks at the rear for suspension duties. For braking, it gets 130mm drum brakes at both ends with CBS as standard.
