Hero Honda advertisement of the 1980s when the CD 100 motorcycle came with the
punch line “Fill it. Shut it. Forget it” and the bike used to boast of 80km per
litre of fuel? The same company (it is now Hero MotoCorp) has raised its bar
several notches high. The company claims that its Splendor iSmart is the most
fuel efficient bike in the world with a claim of 102kmpl of fuel economy. Yes,
it’s now a three-digit figure!
With over two
million Splendours selling every year, the Splendor brand with all its
variants; Splendor+, Splendor Pro, Splendor Pro Classic, the 125cc Super
splendour and the Splendor iSmart, it is the largest selling brand in the
world. Hero has managed to sell over 300,000 units of the Splendor iSmart since
its launch a year back already.
iSmart is powered by a 100cc air cooled 4 stroke single cylinder engine
producing 8bhp@7500rpm and 8Nm of torque@4500rpm fitted with an automatic stop
start system. Hero claims that their Splendor iSmart can achieve a fuel economy
of 102.5kmpl to take the title of the most fuel efficient motorcycle in the
world. The values come with a certification from iCAT (International Centre for
Automotive Technology) and have been obtained in the mandatory emission test
specified in Rule 115 of the Central Motor Vehicle Rules (CMVR) 1989, under
controlled conditions using a reference fuel at an agency authorised by Rule
126 of the said Rules. iCAT is a division of NATRIP Implementation Society
(NATIS) of the government of India.
The iSmart is
available in two different variant drum self-spoke & self-Cast at ex-showroom
price of Rs. 50,000/- and Rs.51,100/-.
