    This post is for every person who had a hero honda splendor in his life.

    If we see the last 10 years every year one new bike and a young and new generation is added in the two wheeler population which is evergrowing.. If we look back the days of RX100, suzuki Shogun, Hero hoda cd100 and splendor and enfiled bullet 350 cc was considered as kings of those days.

    I had my share of experiences with a shogun the fire, powerful and rash bike and then moved to a hero honda splendor which is humble, silent bike which has lived upto the expectations of more than it expected, years have gone by but still it performs as it was on the first day, though in today competition of big bikes and big engines it may not be that powerful or speeding, it may be a bit slower but in the long span i spent with her i feel its a long lasting humble friend always ready for you the harder you push it, the cool attitude it keeps you and her going, it manages off roading a bit, but due to weak shocks provided by hero honda it cant last long on it, i had my both gud and bad experiences in ti, let it be driving from pune to matheran, pune to panchgini, pune to goa, or delhi to jaisalmer, and last but not the least delhi to leh.. she was like a faithful friend where there is no help but pitch black dark highways, it was just her engine sound that kept my heart beating that i am alive.

    Yes there is a problem with the seat and shocks and a bit of less power, but its a sturdy bike meant for long life.

    You dont stop riding because youre getting old, but you get old when you stop riding.

            Very nice thought. Have felt the same when riding solo on mountains.

            Till a few years back i was a typical pulsar150 lover/HH Hater but then i used a splendour for a few days and came away full of respect for it.

                  Yes splendor is a very good and reliable bike. I rode my friends splendor for a year and was extremely satisfied with it. This is one motorcycle that is built to last. Even today for daily commute it is one of the best available, one that has been through the test of time.

                  PERSEVERE... failure is not an option!

                    I was a proud owner of a splendor which lasted 90k kms and sold it for 22k, one bloody reliable bike ..

                      HH splendor owners unite!!!

                      I have a splendor nxg. Was previously owned by my father. He gave it to me when i turned 18 (which was very recently. :-D) The 1st few days i was so excited. Rode around 200kms in 2 days. At that time it was a huge step up from riding my kinetic zing. Loved the power, just down shift, rev hard and overtake. After driving around in a 60cc scooter, my splendor felt like a very powerful bike. Even today i respect my bike a lot. I have driven my friend's apache rtr160 and loved the ridiculous power. But i wouldnt want to own one 'cuz i couldnt handle the vibrations after a while. The fz i've driven but just hate the exhaust note. It just feels too smooth. The apache and the fz feel like completely contrasting motorcycles. Anyway back to topic, i love my splendor more than both these bikes 'cuz even though it doesnt have the apache's power, i never get any sore wrists after a long ride, and even though it doesnt look even remotely as good as the fz, i love the exhaust note of my splendor better. And my bike trashes both the bikes when it comes to the mileage front. :-D
                      Btw how much mileage do you people get in your bike?
                      I get a max of 60kmpl.

                        A lean, Humble, Polite, Decent and Reliable average Indian showcasing a simple man is what reminds when ever I see a splendour. Adored, Respected, Greeted and tortured too.

                        One of the brilliant bike. Pulled wheelies, Ripped it to 100kmph on slopes... Still remains as humble as it is.
