Hero MotoCorp has launched the new Glamour Fi at Rs.70, 280 (ex-showroom Delhi). The Hero Glamour has been among the most effective motorcycles for the country’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer. The 2017 Hero Glamour has received both mechanical and cosmetic updates. It has been engineered and designed indigenously at Hero’s Centre for Innovation and Technology in Jaipur. It also holds the distinction of being the first Hero MotoCorp motorcycle to make its debut outside India as it was officially revealed in Argentina earlier this year.
Hero bikes aren’t renowned for their styling, but with the new Glamour, it has taken a step in the right direction. It looks sleeker and sportier than its predecessor and the design highlight has to be the sharper-looking headlamp unit. The fuel tank features muscular contours and the chunky side and tail panels endows the bike with visual mass. The bike features a semi-digital instrument console and a good looking LED tail lamp.
