The 2017 iteration of the Glamour is the first motorcycle to be developed from scratch by Hero MotoCorp after the Honda split.
It retains all the features and specs from its previous avatar. It gets the same muscular styling with funky decals. The instrument cluster on the motorcycle too is still part digital and part analogue. It also continues to get 'i3s' technology, which is Hero's patented start/stop tech to maximise fuel economy.
The Hero Glamour SV is powered by a 125cc single cylinder petrol engine producing 11.5bhp of power and 11Nm of torque. This mill comes mated to a four-speed gearbox. While the FI (electronic fuel-injection) equipped Glamour is a different model, the Glamour i3s has only carburettion. Its company-claimed fuel efficiency is rated at 60kmpl.
Hero offers the Glamour i3s in four colour combinations - black with blue, black with red, red and black with grey. It can also be had as a drum brake variant or as a disc brake model. The motorcycle competes against the Bajaj V15, Honda CB Shine, TVS Phoenix and the Yamaha Saluto. You can have a Glamour i3s with a drum brake for Rs 61,500 and spec it with a front disc brake for Rs 2000 more (prices stated are ex-showroom, Delhi).
