Splendor iSmart 110 is a completely new motorcycle from Hero MotoCorp, based on a new engine. Unlike other Splendor, iSmart features i3S (idle start stop system) in this new motorcycle.
Hero MotoCorp has employed a new design and styling scheme to this new Splendor, to differentiate it from other Splendor bikes. Starting from the powertrain, iSmart uses entirely new 110cc engine that delivers 9 bhp of power and 9 Nm of torque, which is mated to a 4-speed gearbox with conventional chain drive system. It offers 9% more power and 12% more torque than the iSmart 100. It can accelerate 0-60kmph in 7.45 seconds and can hit a top speed of 87 kmph.
This Splendor has refreshingly new looks. The new curvy fuel tank, simple tail section and bikini fairing gives simple yet more conservative design approach to the motorcycle. The instrument cluster gets a basic design along with a small LCD, integrated in it. Trip meter, odometer and fuel indicators are displayed in this LCD.
Splendor iSmart offers 68 kmpl of mileage, which is better in the class. Moreover it is the first 110cc motorcycle that compiles BS IV emission norms. The idle-start-stop system of Hero enables the bike in saving fuel in stop-go traffic, which has been seen only in cars.
The alternatives for iSmart are Honda Livo, TVS Star City and Suzuki Hayate.
