The Glamour is Hero’s take in the 125cc motorcycle space. When it was launched, the Hero Glamour was the easiest motorcycle on the eyes for its neat design and subtle lines. Now, however, the design has evolved into modern and sharp. But before we delve into the whole design, here’s a quick overview.
First things first. The Hero Glamour, as of early-2020, is available in three variants: Standard, Fi, and i3s. The one you see here is the Standard variant, which does miss out on the bells and whistles of the other variants while keeping the costs in check.
On the plus side though, the Standard variant does look similar to the other variants. The aggressive livery still makes a cut, and so does the sharp and unique headlamp. The alloy wheels are finished in black, and they do well enough to spruce up the looks of the Glamour. The fuel tank is muscular and well-scooped for your knees to grab on. The overall stance is nice and the design looks contemporary and modern, while not being too commuter-centric.
Powering the Hero Glamour is an air-cooled 124.7cc 4-stroke single-cylinder engine good for 9bhp and 10.35Nm of torque. It is carburettor-fed and comes mated to a four-speed manual gearbox. As we closely approach the April 2020 deadline for upgrading to the BS-VI emission standards, the standard Glamour (without the Fi -tech) is expected to be removed from the line-up. Even still, the carburettor variant of the Glamour remains to be the best value for the buck.
We’ve already discussed how the Glamour looks. But, as far as specifications are concerned, the Glamour is 2,005mm in overall length, 735mm in overall width, and 1,070mm in overall height. The ground clearance is a respectable 150mm. Moreover, it boasts a wheelbase of 1,265mm and a seat height of 790mm. The kerb weight is 129kg.
Fuel tank capacity
As per ARAI, the Hero Glamour has a fuel efficiency of 55 kilometres to a litre. The fuel tank capacity, on the other hand, is 13.6-litres.
The Hero Glamour is built around a tubular double-cradle frame. The ride quality, in a typical commuter fashion, is excellent out in the city. The suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks setup at the front and a swing arm with hydraulic shock absorber at the rear. The Glamour comes equipped with a 2.75 x 18 – 42 P / 4 PR tyre at the front and a 3.00 x 18 – 52 P / 6 PR tyre at the rear. As far as braking is concerned, the bike comes equipped with 130mm drums on either end as standard.
Since it is the base-spec variant of the Glamour, it does not bring any fancy features to the table. For safety, still, CBS is standard across the range. For instrumentation, the cluster is segregated into an analogue speedometer that sits right next to a small digital display which shows a variety of rider-centric information. Lighting-wise, the headlamp is powered by halogens while the taillamp is an LED unit.
The Hero Glamour, as of early-2020, is available in five shades, namely, Candy Blazing Red, Black with Tornado Grey, Black with Sports Red, Black with Techno Blue, and Digital Silver. Surprisingly, though, the Glamour only comes in dual-tone shades.
