Hero recalls Splendor iSmart 110 silently for a noise in the engine head and issues with the starter motor.
You read it first on MotorBeam. Hero MotoCorp has issued a silent recall on the Splendor iSmart 110 motorcycle for a noise in the engine head and issues with the starter motor. More than 2 lakh units are affected. India’s largest 2-wheeler manufacturer had issued a silent recall on the Maestro Edge and Duet scooters earlier this year too with more than 1.5 lakh units affected. These scooters use engines designed and developed by Hero in-house.
Hero will be changing both the inlet as well as the outlet valve in the head assembly unit for the engine head noise issue and for issues in the starter motor. The company would be replacing the left side magnet cover, the starter motor itself and the reduction gear. The Karizma maker will be changing or replacing as much as 23 parts on the Splendor iSmart and it has come to light that motorcycles manufactured upto 30th April 2017 have these issues.
Hero had launched the Splendor iSmart 110 in July 2016 with an all new 110cc engine and this was the first engine Hero had designed without Honda’s technical know-how. This 110cc powertrain also features Torque-on-Demand and i3S technology. The previous Splendor iSmart had an engine borrowed from Honda and was extremely reliable with no issues reported. The new 110cc motor on the Splendor iSmart churns out 8.9 HP of power and 9 Nm of torque, the bike rivals the TVS Victor 110.
