Hero MotoCorp is reportedly gearing up to launch its new Splendor iSmart 110 motorcycle in India by April this year. Hero Splendor iSmart 110, the first in-house made bike of the company, was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2016 in New Delhi earlier in February.
A report of MotorOctane claims that Hero's first in-house made bike will be launched in the domestic market by April this year. However, the report did not specify the exact launch details of the model. Last year, Hero had launched two completely in-house developed scooters, Maestro Edge and Duet, in India.
Hero Splendor iSmart 110 is powered by an air cooled single cylinder 4-stroke 110cc engine, which can churn out 8.9bhp at 7,500rpm and 9Nm at 5,500rpm. The engine comes mated to a four-speed gear box.
Hero Splendor iSmart 110 is expected to be offered in dual-tone colours. At the Auto Expo, Hero had showcased red and black and blue and black colours of the Splendor iSmart 110. In India, the bike is expected to get a price tag around Rs 58,000 (ex-showroom).
At the Auto Expo2016, Hero also showcased the Xtreme 200S, the XF3R – design concept vehicle – and the Duet E-electric scooter concept.
