Yes, like many of you predicted, it is indeed a new Splendor. Not the Super Duper Splendor, not the Super Splendor+, or the Super Splendor Deluxe ++, but the Splendor NXG. Like I had thought, it is essentially the Splendor with the new motor from the CD-Deluxe, but there's more. The panels, tank etc are all new, the motor sounds quite authoritative, and hell I'll ride it and tell you if 7.7 bhp is the new creme de la creme. But for the moment, here are some moments from the launch (please note that vids and images are unedited and untouched, so more horrible than usual even, excuse kindly).

Well, look on the bright side.

Splendor NXG? Should have been It's-plain-dour NXG. Where's the fuel-injected Karizma 250, with monoshock rear suspension and digital / LED everything?

What a bike. One more brilliant product by the exceptional R&D dept of HH.

Bajaj, TVS, Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Ducati, etc, go and learn something from HH's R&D dept about how to make worldclass and unbeatable (in terms of sales no) products.

My friend Navendu, HH is the only bike maker who don't have their own R & D, while all the others have...
