IAB readers spot the all-new Hero Glamour 125 in India
Neelanjan Chakraborty, Motorcycle Nut, will ride, preferably race anything on two wheels!
The Hero Glamour 125 was unveiled in a new avatar in Argentina.
The 2017 Hero Glamour made its world premiere in Buenos Aires just after the Dakar Rally in January. While implying that the motorcycle will launch in India at some point, the company issued no further updates on the launch schedule.
Now, IAB readers from Assam and Bihar have spotted the bikes in their cities, and these images were shared by Aayush. Hero MotoCorp did not respond to our calls on the Glamour at the time this article was published.
Unlike the version currently sold in India that was just updated to BS4 spec, the all-new Glamour, developed at Hero’s R&D facilities in India notably gets a new visor and different alloy wheels. The bike also gets torque on demand while the exhaust is devoid of chrome.
The air-cooled single cylinder 125 cc OHC engine in the new Hero Glamour produces a maximum power output of 11.4 bhp (8.5 kW) @ 7500 rpm and maximum torque of 11 Nm @ 6500 rpm. The engine is forward inclined while the current motorcycle has a horizontally inclined mill.
Hero Motocorp said at the launch that the Hero Glamour is 3 percent more efficient than the previous model while the fuel injected version will have an improvement of 7 percent. The bike gets the i3S technology, and the start-stop mechanism will be helpful in increasing the real world efficiency figure. Hero said that the carburettor in the new generation motorcycle has been upgraded to the ‘CV’ type, while the injection system on the FI variant was “next-gen”.
The all new Hero Glamour is expected to launch in India soon in the carburetted as well as fuel injected version.
