Hero has unveiled its first all-new global product, the 2017 Glamour, in an event in Argentina. While the 125cc motorcycle will make its way to the Indian market in two months from now, it is expected to go on sale soon in Latin American markets. It will be christened as the Ignitor in these markets while the Glamour nameplate will continue in the Indian market space. Hero says that the motorcycle is an all-new vehicle.
There is a new face with an always on headlamp feature, sleeker and longer side panels, LED tail lamp, new alloy wheels and end pipe. The engine is all-new too and replaces the earlier 125cc sloper motor with a BS-IV compliant vertical unit. Power is now 11.5PS (around 27 per cent higher) while torque is 11Nm. Like the previous Glamour, even the new motorcycle will come in fuel injected as well as carburetted versions. Hero says that the carburetted Glamour will do the 0-60kmph in less than 6 seconds, while the Fi shaves off the time by 0.5s, the fastest in the segment. The motorcycles now deliver a fuel efficiency of 58kmpl and 60kmpl respectively, according to Hero's claims. Here is a look at the images of the new Hero Glamour.
The Glamour gets new colour shades. These depend on whether you purchase the Fi or Carb version
There is no visual difference between the carburetted and Fi version. Look closer near the tank extension and you can notice the Fi sticker on this motorcycle
The new face resembles that of the CB Unicorn 160 and gets the AHO feature
The switches are from existing Hero motorcycles while the choke lever is now placed below the horn
The new vertical engine is BS-IV compliant and boasts a 27 per cent increase in power. It is also more fuel-efficient as per Hero's claims
The LED tail lamp looks nice while the rear portion as well as the grab rail resemble those from the Xtreme and Ignitor respectively
The new digital-analogue meter houses the fuel gauge, tell-tale lights, speedometer, service indicator as well as the tripmeters
The i3S technology is available only with the carburetted Glamour
Both the carb as well as Fi versions get a front disc brake
