Hero MotoCorp has introduced the fancier and more premium version of its 125cc commuter, the Glamour, in India. Apart from carrying the suffix ‘Xtec’ in its name, it has a lot of add-ons to write home about. From looks to features, a lot of elements are new and here we list them down in five points for you.
Fully-digital instrument cluster
Unlike the semi-digital instrument cluster of the standard Glamour, the Xtec variant gets an LCD dash. This unit looks identical to that present in Hero’s 200cc bikes like the Xpulse 200 and the Xtreme 200S. Besides the basic info, this console shows a lot of other data such as gear position indicator, tachometer, eco mode, and real-time mileage.
Bluetooth and Navigation
It’s not just the design and layout of this instrument cluster that’s identical to the Xpulse 200 but also the list of features it offers are the same. It comes equipped with Bluetooth connectivity for giving access to turn-by-turn navigation along with Google Maps. Additionally, what comes across as the first-in-class feature, this LCD also provides alerts for calls and messages.
Other practical features
Apart from updating the instrumentation, Hero has also employed a few other features in the new Glamour Xtec. These include a side stand engine cut-off switch, a USB charger, an LED headlamp, and a bank angle sensor. The latter is actually a safety feature that turns off the engine in an event of a fall.
Added styling elements
The Hero Glamour is already a handsome-looking motorcycle with sporty and free-flowing design lines. For an added visual appeal, it sports a new matte black paint job adorned with silver accents. Moreover, 3D branding and silver rim tapes complete the cosmetic changes.
Marginal price premium
The aforementioned changes also demand a marginal price premium over other variants of the Glamour. The Xtec variant will be available in two trims including drum and front disc brake which are priced at Rs 78,900 and Rs 83,500, respectively (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi).
