Hero Honda Launches New 2011 Glamour

by atul on April 26, 2011

Here is news for all the readers from a company that is now days trying to give every other motorcycle in their portfolio a refreshed look, Hero Honda. This time around Hero Honda has managed to come up with a refreshed Glamour 125. Not many days have passed since the company launched their CBZ Xtreme in a new look and now Glamour 125cc too gets a cosmetic upgrade.

The new Hero Honda Glamour gets a mere cosmetic paint job kind of upgrade and nothing more. This can be identified from the fact that the engine internals remains the same as the older model. The company may seem to hatch back on sales by launching these kind of refreshed models in which nothing more than looks have been refreshed.

The Hero Honda Glamour 125 sports a new and improved instrument console with a touch of digitization to it. The analogue trip meter, odometer and the fuel gauge are now digitalized, thus adding to the working capabilities of the commuter. The speedo continues to remain an analogue unit while the tacho is absent.

The company has also added new graphics and a brand new front cowl to the motorcycle that looks good. Also another thing to look out in the refreshed model are its plastic fake air scoops. The Headlamp and fairing have also been refreshed to go with the look of the bike and the muffler gets a new cover too.

The company did not do anything with the engine at all. It remains the same 125cc producing bout 9 Bhp and 10.35 Nm, while the 4 speed transmission is retained. One good thing about the engine is the fuel efficiency and better for commuting through tricky paths.

The motorcycle is available in both disc and drum brake variants while the top end variant comes with fuel injection technology. The top end variant comes in at a price tag of INR 58,000 while the drum and disc brake versions are priced at INR 49,300 and INR 51,200 respectively, all prices being Ex-showroom Delhi.

5th gear would be nice while riding on long city or toll roads.

JK ULTIMATE April 26, 2011 at 9:24 pm

Looks ugly. Very bad upgrade from HH.
Thumbs down for this,

gagan deep parihar April 27, 2011 at 8:22 am

hero honda is trying to fool the people in india, by new varients of the same old dish and same taste theyshould better improve the performance and engeering


Sachin April 27, 2011 at 8:42 am

This was much needed facelift & should have been done long back.glamour engine is still one of the best engine & it is tuned for fuel efficiency as it is evident from RPM @ which it makes maximum power &torque.i think glamour is now very good option in place of Twister which is similarly priced for carburator version.


fas April 27, 2011 at 9:10 am

Better upgrades than what they used to do with Hero HOnda.


subeesh April 27, 2011 at 9:42 am

I expect better upgrade from HH


oomy April 27, 2011 at 11:37 am

what is this yaaaaar again……..nai botal mein purani sharab.


Anaswar April 27, 2011 at 1:07 pm

What is the R&D team of HH doing there??? I think any tom dick and harry who likes bikes can design much better than this…..no need of 25years experience and doctorate to stick new stickers n lame makeovers like this….



Trilok April 27, 2011 at 2:36 pm

previous is better than this model


santosh April 27, 2011 at 4:28 pm

except the muffler cover. every thing is…. Well bad.

MY glamour is waaay better


Reeto April 27, 2011 at 4:44 pm

Pathetic job by HH, another plastic and paint upgrade. People still buy these products and waste their hard-earned resources. It is advisable to go for a Bajaj as they atleast upgrade their engine and performance with every launch.


Tanmoy April 27, 2011 at 7:42 pm

Looks pathatic…
It cant perform in front of Pulsar 135, Stunner, Gladiator etc. so why dont HH upgrade its engine to produce more power with good fuel efficiency…?
This is IInd most bad looking 125cc bike in India, Ist bad looking is super splendor..


Aditya April 28, 2011 at 12:30 am

Hero Honda design the body. Honda design the engine. Hero did what they are the best at, design the body………give a better more refreshed look. It has worked for them in the past and it will work for them now as Hero group recognises the common man’s thought process……….Jo dikatha hai voh biktha hai ……..Boss!


deepak April 28, 2011 at 1:13 am

is the honda dreaming or wht..

cant they see
bajaj’s pulsar 135 ls
tvs’s flame 125cc

wht is this bike…
i alwys disliked the twister bcs it looks skiny type and very wrong to its shape….
but now m thinking its way ahead in front of this stupide bike.

very poor upgrade…
bcs there is no upgrade…


mahapurush April 28, 2011 at 5:10 am

HH bikes, ekdum bakwas. Hero, a puppet in the hands of Honda.Now that Honda has released the strings, Hero is cuming up with all rubbish.


Srv April 28, 2011 at 11:12 am

first off this aint a performance bike, its just a basic commuter so no question of improving performance.
Moreover glamour s engine is prety decent n smooth, i dnt thnk they had any need to interfere with dat.
N i dont thnk people would appreciate their bikes to be out dated after 6months of purchase.


PA July 21, 2011 at 3:27 pm

Why are you comparing Glamour with Harley Davindson Iron 883 in your mind. If you want power go for Harley, spend 8-9 lacs.
Before writing anything negative please see if it actually fits in the place or not…


Prabakar April 28, 2011 at 9:22 pm

Most ugliest bike in indian history was now getting a lil coating… but still…. Ho ho hero honda plz know the meaning of the word “GLAMOUR”


deepak April 29, 2011 at 10:11 am

perfomance ,perfomance ,perfomance …… all r worried abt perfomance. Petrol price in our nation is shooting up. Dont any one worried abt milage?…My previous model glamour gives me 55 km/litre from indian oil pump and 63 km/litre from hindustan petroleum? But it is not the matter of volume i think. may b of quality difference.


atluri gandhi master January 13, 2012 at 1:58 pm

u’ve said good man


rohit May 19, 2011 at 1:37 pm

when this bike will get in showrooms for customer. till now it is not there in showroom and old version is still selling in showrooms


Bharath May 19, 2011 at 5:25 pm

Glamour is really a good bike with best in class mileage. Any one who drives glamour will love it. It is not for performance bikers, its for simple people who want simple looks, good mileage, low on maintenance and a comfort ride. Practically this bike is good, not like Yamaha which is famous for its non-practicality like low on mileage, high cost of spares, small seat and most importantly, stupid service.


annonymous May 27, 2011 at 12:06 pm

new glamour looks better than the old, earlier version doesn’t look much appealing. hope in this version they don’t provide varying mileage in all the bikes like the earlier version

HH glamour 2011 is a good facelift for the bike, as everybody knows its not 3P bike (i.e. power. performance and pleasure), its just a commuter bike and it is best in its class. those who people changed their bike often can afford bajaj bikes, but for durability HH bikes r best. Dhak Dhak GO….


surinder paul August 8, 2011 at 1:01 pm

I used this bike in 2008 to 2010– again i wanna purchase the same Model- 2011

really i love it & enjoying this bike


Khagesh October 1, 2011 at 1:55 pm

This is very good bike for indian peoples

I don’t think about of glamour. Some say bad bike some say good bike but anyone can’t say about of bike surely.


ravi January 6, 2012 at 1:11 pm



atluri gandhi master January 13, 2012 at 1:50 pm

i don’t understand what to do. i could’nt get any thing by going through the views , for or against. What is the use of wasting ur time? You can list it’s assets or drawbacks instead.Could any body give me inf about it’s millage and durability?


jagan April 5, 2012 at 2:42 pm

if it’s more then 60 its too good compare to others


AKASH MAJUMDAR March 6, 2013 at 10:05 pm
