The Hero Splendor NXG Exterior Review
The bike resembles to the original model a lot. The appearance to the core is same apart from the stickers and the new graphics. Rest nothing could fetch the audience. The expectations were immense high but they went in vain. People may be enticed but the duo color theme of the bike. It has been blended with two vibrant colors. It has been made keeping the black them all over extending to black alloy wheels, engine and the shock absorber also. It has been integrated with visor and cowl and headlamps which does the best possible justice to the model. The rear view mirrors are black in colour. The seat is long which ensure seating comfort, also a taillight at the back.
But what is really being ignored in the model is the youth aspirations of style. The hero has to blend in that factor to be in vogue and turn outstanding amid the clutter.
