Hero Splendor iSmart 110 Ride and Handling
Riding the Hero Splendor iSmart 110 came a a bit of surprise. Frankly I was not expecting kind of ride and handling that it offered. It instantly felt like a much more matured motorcycle and displayed a better poise. The Hero Splendor iSmart 110 had quite a cushioned ride and glided smoothly over undulations on the road. It didn’t bottom out either, on large potholes.
Riding this bike in the city is a breeze. More so as it delivers a good torque at low rpm. This results in the bike feeling punchier at stop n go situations, as compared to its competition. The braking was an area where we felt it lacks, mainly due to the absence of disc brakes. The company needs to offer a dic brake version as buyers today are well aware and used to disc brakes, to a certain extent, in many geographies. An inclusion of disc braes will make it even more attractive and can take on completion in a better fashion.
