The Splendor iSmart, which comes equipped with stop-and-start i3S technology, was first showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo 2014. The i3S technology automatically shuts the engine when idling and turns it on when needed with just one click.
The bike comes with 100-cc air-cooled, 4-Stroke Single Cylinder OHC engine, which can churn out a power of 5.74 KW (7.8 Ps) at 7500 rpm and maximum torque of 0.82 Kg-m (8.04 N-M) @ 4500 rpm.

Our customers will love the new i3S technology which makes this motorcycle truly smart, giving them more for every drop of fuel. We have applied for a patent for this technology which may be later extended to several other models," said Anil Dua, Sr. Vice President (Marketing & Sales), Hero MotoCorp at the launch.
