A key factor that sets these motorcycles apart is their fuel efficiency. For those seeking a cost-effective and fuel-efficient ride, both the Bajaj Platina 100 and Hero Splendor+ XTEC are excellent options. However, making a choice between the two can be challenging. To aid in this decision, let’s delve into a comparison of these two motorcycles.

The Hero Splendor+ XTEC distinguishes itself with several unique features. It offers four color options: Tornado Grey, Sparkling Beta Blue, Canvas Black, and Pearl White. Under the hood, it maintains its tried and tested engine – a 97.2cc BS6 air-cooled single-cylinder engine, which has proven its mettle over time.

One of the highlights of this engine is the i3S (Idle Stop-Start System) technology, enhancing its fuel efficiency. The i3S system shuts off the engine when idle and restarts it as soon as you press the clutch, thereby saving fuel during brief stops. As for the price, the Hero Splendor+ XTEC’s ex-showroom price in Delhi is Rs 79,911.

In contrast, the Bajaj Platina 100 opts for a more traditional and basic design. It is equipped with telescopic forks and features 17-inch alloy wheels, along with a dual shock suspension system. This setup ensures a comfortable ride, particularly on uneven road surfaces.
