Hero Motocorp Unveils Splendor Pro Classic: Poor Man’s Café Racer

|

Hero MotoCorp showcased the uniquely odd Splendor Pro at the 2014 Auto Expo. The Splendor Pro Classic is an attempt to create a café racer on a budget.  The changes over the standard Splendor Pro include a rear cowl, a low-set handlebar, slightly redesigned twin pod instrument console and loads of chrome. The tail-lamps as well as the seat have also been modified to make this commuter look more like a Café Racer. Unfortunately, the Splendor is not cut out to be a Café racer, and it doesn’t end up looking like one.

The Splendor Pro ‘Café Racer’ is powered by the same 100cc air cooled single cylinder engine with 7bhp and 8.4Nm of torque that powers the stock Spendor. A café racer with a 100cc engine? Really? No sir, not even with those RVMs.
