Hero has reintroduced the Glamour motorcycle in India, following its discontinuation in 2020 due to stricter BS6 emissions standards. The Glamour is available in two variants: drum and disc. The drum variant holds a price tag of Rs 82,348, while the disc variant is priced slightly higher at Rs 86,348.
Powering the Hero Glamour is an air-cooled, 124.7cc, single-cylinder engine that generates a power output of 10.5hp at 7,500rpm and a peak torque of 10.4Nm at 6,000rpm. This powerplant is paired with a 5-speed gearbox for efficient transmission.
The motorcycle is built on a basic yet sturdy diamond frame and boasts a suspension system comprising a telescopic fork at the front and preload-adjustable twin shock absorbers at the rear.
The Glamour offers riders a choice between two front braking options: a 240mm disc or a 130mm drum. The rear brake, on the other hand, is a 130mm drum. The overall weight of the bike varies based on the brake selection, with the drum brake version weighing in at 121.3kg and the disc brake version slightly heavier at 122.5kg.
In terms of features, the Hero Glamour incorporates Hero’s proprietary i3s stop/start technology, a fully digital dashboard (without Bluetooth connectivity), and a convenient USB charging port.
The motorcycle is available in three distinctive colour choices: Candy Blazing Red, Techno Blue-Black, and Sports Red-Black.
Here are some of the pros and cons of Hero Glamour:
- Affordable price
- Fuel-efficient engine
- Comfortable ride
- Spacious seat

The Hero Glamour faces competition in the market from notable rivals, including the Honda Shine 125 with a price range of Rs 79,800 to Rs 83,800, and the Bajaj Pulsar 125 Neon, which is priced at Rs 84,013. This reintroduction positions Hero Glamour as a contender in the commuter segment, catering to riders looking for efficiency, affordability, and reliable performance.
