The new Splendor Plus Xtec 2.0 from Hero MotoCorp is available at Rs 82,911 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This indicates that the new model is Rs 3,000 more expensive than the outgoing model. Several premium and first-in-segment features are included in the most recent Hero Splendor, which commemorates the 30th anniversary of the world's best-selling motorcycle. The new Xtec 2.0 has a new LED headlight, housing a high-intensity position lamp (HIPL). The commuter also receives a new H-shaped characteristic taillight for a unique look. However, it still has a recognisable silhouette. 

Sharing his thoughts on the new product, Ranjivjit Singh, Chief Business Officer - India BU, Hero MotoCorp, said, 'Splendor is an Iconic brand with an unmatched leadership spanning 30 years. The motorcycle has won millions of hearts and continues encouraging India's growth by empowering people through accessible mobility. Splendor's enduring success is a testament to Hero MotoCorp's continuous innovation, brand trust, and product reliability. A perfect blend of iconic design, latest technology, and practicality, the Splendor is an emotion, a symbol of progress, and the unwavering aspirations of 40 million happy customers.'

Hero Splendor Plus Xtec 2.0: What's New?

Hero MotoCorp hasn't altered the design in any way to ensure that its identity is maintained. Nonetheless, the Splendor Plus Xtec 2.0's most notable highlights are its contemporary features. For instance, it receives an LED headlamp with an integrated LED position lamp. It also has a signature H-shaped LED taillamp at the back.

As far as the colour options are concerned, the bike is available for purchase in three new paint jobs: Matte Grey, Gloss Black, and Gloss Red. The engine crash guard is still chrome-finished, while other stylistic features like side hooks and a tubular grab rail that also functions as a short tail rack are still present. Additionally, the larger glove box with a hinge-style design adds convenience, and the new Splendour Plus Xtec is said to have a longer seat for greater comfort.

The standout feature is the fully digital instrument console, which includes a side stand indicator, eco-indicator, service reminder, and real-time mileage indicator. The Hero model also boasts Bluetooth connectivity for calls, texts, and battery alerts in addition to a USB charging port. Besides, a side-stand engine cutoff, bank angle sensor, and dedicated warning switch provide a safety net.
