After several launches in this month alone, Hero MotoCorp has decided to give the venerable Splendor a new paint scheme. The world’s largest manufacturer of motorcycles and scooters has priced the Splendor+ Black and Accent at Rs 64,470 (ex-showroom, Delhi). What’s unique this time is the fact that customers can customise the graphics on their bike at the time of purchase.

The pre-decided designs come from an earlier initiative by the brand called the ‘Hero CoLabs’ contest. It was launched on 7th April 2020 and participants from across the country were urged upon to create graphic design themes for the Splendor+. Over 10,000 registrations were received and the results were announced 16th May 2020. Out of all entries, 3 were put into production. Of course, customers can choose to take delivery of the motorcycle without said graphics, too!

The Splendor+ Black and Accent edition has an ‘all-black’ theme. This includes blacked-out engine casing, chain cover and tyres. There’s also a new 3D Hero logo, which can be added as an accessory. The three graphical themes – Beetle Red, Firefly Golden and Bumble Bee Yellow – cost Rs 899, each. Furthermore, customers can also get the complete kit with graphics, 3D Hero logo and rim tape at a Rs 1,399.
