Introduction of Hero Glamour

Hero Honda, the famous motor company, came to a separation forming Hero and Honda, two different companies after years of their joint venture. Now both companies are successful motor companies in their genre.

Hero Glamour is known as one of the most stylish bikes in India. Hero company makes bikes for middle-class families with the best mileage and long-lasting performance. Unlike its other competitors, Hero MotoCorp likes to keep it simple and attract customers with its name and performance over the years. Due to the Popularity Hero have launched two new Models named as Glamour Canvas and Glamour Xtec Due to the Popularity Hero have launched two new Models named as Glamour Canvas and Glamour Xtec.

The Glamour series of Hero bikes is quite popular among Indian youth aged 18-24 because of its performance and stylish design. Despite using it for years, the motorcycle still gives the same mileage as the customer brought it. These comments are from people who have Hero Glamour.

Unlike their 100cc series, Hero MotoCorp have worked their way through the 125cc series, and Hero Glamour new model is one of those bikes. Hero Glamour is a stylish and sporty bike with various colour options that makes it look pretty.

Hero Glamour has had features packed from the 100cc series like the i3S start-stop system.

The 100cc series had quite a lot of complaints regarding the braking issue and handling at high speed. Let’s look at the detailed review containing all the specifications, features, and all other things.

What's new in the Hero Glamour

A new addition to the series of Glamour is the new Glamour Xtec.

Some other additions are:

  • Hero Glamour introduced a real-time mileage indicator and auto sail technology.
  • USB charging port, Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation with integrated Google Maps connectivity.
  • The LED headlight that many buyers requested of the 100cc series has is now added in Glamour.
  • An intelligent sensor technology that automatically adjusts vehicle performance depending on riding conditions is called Xsens with Programmed Fi.

Highlights of Hero Glamour

Specifications of Hero Glamour

The standard variant of Hero Glamour includes CBS, i3S idle start-stop system that kills the engine off when inactive for more than 5 seconds.

So, in traffic, you don’t have to waste your fuel standing in the traffic for hours; the bike will automatically switch off the engine and save your fuel. The engine would eventually start when you pull the clutch, which helps the Hero Glamour extract better mileage out of the bike, especially on traffic roads.

The Glamour Xtec comes loaded with additional features like a USB charging port, Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, and an integrated Google Maps assistant. A gear indicator on the panel displaying what gear the bike is.

A bank angle sensor that shuts off the engine during a fall and a side-stand engine cut off that turns off the engine when the bike is on the side-stand. Also, you won’t be able to start the engine if the motorcycle is on a side-stand.

Additionally, Hero Glamour Xtec also gets an LED headlight that Hero Glamour standard variant lacks. Xtec is available in four colours: Sports Red, Tornado Grey, Techno Blue, and Radiant Red.

Hero Glamour gets a new BS6 compliant 125cc fuel-injected powertrain engine that is 19 per cent more powerful than the BS4 compliant motor.

Hero Glamour has a 5-speed transmission and is better than the usual four-speed ones because it offers better mileage.

New specifications are from 100cc to 125cc and from 130mm to 240mm disc at the front and 130mm drum brakes at the rear. It still misses out on disc brakes at the rear but still makes up for it on the front.

Design of Hero Glamour

The rich look of Hero Glamour comes from the 3D branding on the fuel tank on the front. The 3D emblem mentioning “Glamour” with a silver tone gives it a rich and elegant look.

It gives a comfortable one seat that provides ease to the rider and the passenger on the back.

The tail lamp of Hero Glamour is in the signature H style lamp. It adds up to the rich design of the Glamour.

The name Glamour is given to the bike being pretty relatable. The H signature tail-lamp on the back and the design of Glamour make it alluring.

The dual-tone body graphics with the perfect colour combination makes it much more attractive and fascinating. The graphics on the body is stylish and more defining that gives the bike a modern look.

After upsetting many buyers in the 100cc series, Hero Glamour finally introduced the Digi-analogue console. It has an analogue speedometer but digital indications of fuel and gear. It also has a mileage indicator on the bike according to the conditions and performance of the bike.

100/80 wide rear tire for design as well as for the safety of the bike. The five-speed transmission makes the motorcycle run faster with a 125cc powered engine, so adding a 100/80 wide rear tire is obvious for extra grip and safety.

The Xtec variant comes with an LED headlight, and the standard variant comes with an average yellow headlamp, but the specifications mention them as much brighter than the usual ones. Glamour has split alloy wheels in a black finish to give it superior looks and design.

The longer front suspension makes the bike look heightened and fascinating. It also has a muscular designer tank that adds up to the designed and rich look of Glamour Xtec.

Models, Colour Options and Variants of Hero Glamour

Hero Glamour has 2 variants.

  • Variant 1: Self start drum brake alloy wheel – Fi
  • Variant 2: Self start disk brake alloy wheel – Fi

Features of Hero Glamour

The Glamour has a 80/100-18 inch tyre on the front and a 100/80-18 inch rear tyre with 130mm drum brakes on both ends. It has a 240mm disc brake at the show in the disc brake variant. They build this model around a tubular double cradle chassis.

Hero Glamour’s new model is lagging in terms of features and offers in comparison to the competition in the Indian market. The basic variant still does miss out on the LED headlamp and tail lamp.

The instrument cluster of Glamour is a Digi-analogue unit with a digital screen that displays gear numbers, fuel gauge, trip meter, odometer, and mileage meters. The team has an analogue speedometer.

They install a USB charging port and Auto Navigation System with Google Maps assistant and Bluetooth connectivity.

Pros and Cons of Hero Glamour


  • One of its pros is the powerful engine of a 124.7cc motor which may not be good at leading powerful engines or torque figures but is high in the fuel-efficient category. The bike delivers an economy of around 60km/l on highways, and it may deliver up to 70km/l too.
  • Better transmission because of the 5-speed gearbox, which is much better than the earlier 4-speed unit. The 5-speed gearbox makes it easier to travel in the city and on highways because it increases the performance and mileage.
  • Effortless Riding because of the lightweight. Kerb weight of 123kg in the disc brake variant makes it easy to ride the bike for most of  It makes it easy to ride and control in urban
  • After-sales service is one of the best pros of Hero MotoCorp bikes. The buyers have a pretty good experience with after-sales service. The part availability is superior to most of its rivals.


  • It lacks in the Refine Department. The 125cc motor is not as good as its rivals in the same category in terms of refinement and does not feel smooth while riding at high speed.
  • Stiff Suspension makes it harder to ride and takes a significant toll on the overall riding quality of the bike. Honda Shine offers a better suspension with a bit of high curb weight to ride better.
  • Outdated Design. While many aspects of Hero Glamour make it look modern, buyers complain that it should reconsider its design and look a little more appealing would do wonders.
