The new model gets many changes to make it look more modern

It can be seen in the pictures that the upcoming Hero Splendor Pro get a lot of changes but still keeping the Splendor stance unchanged. The motorcycle gets a new headlight and headlight cowl which looks more modern and nice. The tank has also been redesigned to match the modern day quotient of the motorcycle. The side profile more or less remains the same with a new side cowl. The rear gets subtle changes with a slightly modified tail light.

The upcoming Hero Splendor Pro shares some of its parts with its other siblings. The grab rail has been borrowed from the Hero HF Deluxe. The bike does get a new silencer but the exhaust heat shield has also been borrowed from the HF Deluxe. Apart from the headlight, the most prominent change is the instrument cluster which now has three pods. The speedometer has been kept at the center supported by the tell-tale lights and the fuel indicator on either side. All the three pods of the console have been given chrome surrounds to give a premium touch.
