Recently, Hero has launched the people’s favourite Hero Super Splendor 125 with a slight upgrade on the motorcycle. The authorized distributor of Hero motorcycles in Nepal, NGM Hero has made the bike available to the Nepali market. The official Hero Super Splendor 125 Price in Nepal is NPR. 1,98,000.
The Hero Super Splendor has always been the best selling series from Hero Motocorp. The new Super Splendor 125 is an upgrade from its sibling. It now comes with added safety features and an i3s engine that has been refined for performance, and mileage.
Hero Super Splendor 125 with IBS i3s Overview
Though, I’d say there aren’t any jaw-dropping changes. The major changes on the new Hero Super Splendor 125 include the updated engine. The design pretty much looks the same resonating with the previous models.
Engine and Performance
The new Hero Super Splendor 125 comes with a 124.7cc air-cooled, 4-stroke, single-cylinder engine. It can generate a max torque of 10.35Nm at 4000rpm and max power up to 9.0bhp at 7000rpm.
Moreover, the engine is still not BS6-compliant. This is a bummer but for now, the Super Splendor comes with a BS-4 engine. Furthermore, the gearbox is a solid 4-speed manual transmission.
Besides the mentioned characteristics, the bike is still a built-for-convenience motorcycle that gives out a buttery performance.
Design and Features
For the design, Hero has opted in the New Integrated Braking System (IBS) on the new Super Splendor 125. This means that the brakes will be applied equally, both on the front and the rear to ensure safety during emergency braking.
The bike comes with a bunch of modern features such as Self-Start, I3S Technology, 18-in Alloy Wheels, a 13-liters Fuel Tank, and Dual Drum Brakes. The new Super Splendor 125 also features an additional Storage Utility Box.
Moreover, the modern design on this bike with premium stickering makes it look more impressive. Hero Splendor is a family-bike, therefore they have crafted the features accordingly.
You get 5 different colour options on this bike: Black with Red Stripes, Black with Grey, Black with Violet, Candy Blazing Red, and Ebony Grey.
Brakes and Tires
One of the major upgrades on the Hero Super Splendor 125 is on the brakes. It now features the IBS (Integrated Brake System). Hero’s IBS is a version of the Combined Braking System that clutches both the wheels at the same time even if the rider applies the front brake.
Furthermore, the wheels on the Super Splendor 125 are 18-inch alloys with drum brakes on either side. Yep, they went for dual-drum instead of the traditional disc on the front and drum on the rear.
The mileage on Hero Super Splendor 125 is set at 60km per liter. Thanks to the i3s technology accompanied with the newly refined engine. In short, the engine shuts itself off if the bike is still for 3 seconds or more. Highly effective during traffic and innovative technology to save fuel.

Hero Super Splendor 125 IBS i3s Price in Nepal
In my opinion, the new Hero Super Splendor 125 competes with the likes of Honda Shine, Yamaha Saluto, and Suzuki Hayate. However, it outshines them from many different angles.
To me, it is a real bang for your buck. The performance is great for what it is and the design is admirable. I would say that this would not be the primary choice for young riders. However, someone who enjoys responsibility and economic ride, it is an absolute steal.
If I really had to knit pick the shortcomings of this bike, I’d say it would have been great to see a 5-speed manual transmission with a front disc brake. But that does not mean you should not buy this bike at all. The Hero Super Splendor 125 offers value-for-money and it is an ideal choice for a professional man.
The price of Hero Super Splendor 125 in Nepal is NPR. 1,98,000. The bike is available in the market of Nepal and throughout all the showrooms of Hero Motocorp.
