In order to cash in on the festive season and offer something extra to the customer, the country’s biggest bikemaker has announced the launch of the Hero Splendor Plus Black and Accent version. In what is a first for the segment, this version of the Splendor Plus can be customized with the graphics of customer’s choice at the time of purchase.
The unique concept is a result of the company’s ‘Hero CoLabs’ contest. As part of the contest, participants from across the country created graphic design themes for the Splendor+ motorcycle.

These three designs are now available to customers to choose from and have one of them installed on their new motorcycle. Customers can choose to purchase the motorcycle without any graphics as well.
The Splendor Plus Black and Accent edition comes in an ‘All-Black’ avatar with black wheels, black engine and black chain cover. The stylish appeal can be further accentuated with a 3D Hero logo, which is available as an accessory. The Splendor+ Black and Accent will be available at a price of Rs 64,470 (Ex-showroom Delhi) across all Hero MotoCorp dealerships. At the time of purchase, customers can choose from three distinct design themes – Beetle Red, Firefly Golden and Bumble Bee Yellow. The graphic themes are priced at Rs 899/- across the country.
