All new Hero Glamour was launched in the country recently with latest style and technology in addition to the upgraded BS-IV engine. It appears in two variants- a drum brake and a disc brake variant at Rs.57,775 and Rs.59,755 (Both ex-showroom prices, Delhi) respectively. Another fuel injected version, Glamour FI has also been launched with only a disc brake variant priced at Rs.66,580 (ex-showroom price, Delhi). Hero has started selling the 2017 model bike through all its dealerships across the country through prebooking options. The older version still continues to be on sale until stocks last at its price, which is around Rs.10000 lesser than the new one.
Hero Glamour 2017 gets new looks and a more tough exterior with its angular design. The instrument cluster comes in analog-digital display with i3S indicator, trip meter, odometer and a digital fuel gauge. The headlamps come with AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) feature that has become mandatory on all vehicles now. The rear gets LED tail lights and profile looks much sleeker compared to the outgoing model. The fuel tank capacity is 13.6 litres.
This new commuter is powered by a 124.7cc air cooled, single cylinder four stroke engine that produces more power than the existing model at 11.3bhp and 11Nm of torque. The BS-IV engine is mated to a four speed gearbox and is developed using Hero’s i3S (Idle Stop Start System) technology. This technology was developed to increase the fuel efficiency that helps turn off the ignition when the engine is idle and can be restarted using the clutch and therefore claims to return a mileage of 60kmpl.
The FI variant on the other hand, is charged by a 124.7cc air cooled, single cylinder engine that produces 8.97bhp and 10.35Nm of torque. The fuel tank capacity of this bike is 12 litres while the bike claims a mileage of 62kmpl.
The three variants of Glamour 2017 weigh between 125kg to 127kg. Braking duties are handled by 240mm disc brake at the front for disc brake variants and 130mm drum brake at its rear. The carbureted engine model is available in five colours which includes a new Digital Silver while the FI engine model is available in three colours.
