Hero MotoCorp to come out with a BS-VI compliant Hero Glamour soon.
Spy shots reveal a carefully camouflaged version of the BSVI Hero Glamour.
The teaser video of the Euro V (BSVI-equivalent) reveals more details of this bike.
BSVI emission norms are around the corner. Hero MotoCorp has, therefore, discontinued manufacturing its BS-IV models, including the Hero Glamour. It concentrates on the BSVI versions of its popular models. One such BS-VI compliant model, the Hero Glamour was spied testing on the Indian roads.
The camouflaged version does not reveal many details, but the body-colored rear-view mirror housing and the red twin-sided springs were visible.
Though the testing bike was a fully concealed one, the teaser videos of the Euro V compliant Hero Glamour reveal many details. The teaser video was out before the EICMA 2019. The video did not show any significant changes to the outgoing model. Maybe, the cost could have been a factor.
As it is, the mandatory provision of ABS/CBS technology on two-wheelers and the insurance rates have contributed to the price hikes. The up-gradation to BSVI norms is also an expensive exercise. Thus, one can expect an increase in the price of two-wheelers by around 10-15%.
The instrument console of the Hero Glamour was visible in the teaser video. The semi-digital display will be similar to the one present on the BS-IV version. The video also revealed the BSVI version to draw its power from a 3-way catalytic converter along with a fuel injection system. According to Hero MotoCorp, all upcoming Hero bikes will come with more than 500 electrical and mechanical components.
This bike will have the i3S feature to ensure better mileage. The fuel injection engine system should enhance the fuel economy, as well. There is a precedent, as the Hero Splendour iSmart BSVI version claims to be more fuel-efficient than its corresponding BS-IV model.
The BSIV Hero Glamour model delivers 9.1ps power and 10.35Nm of torque. Not many details are available on the BSVI version as on date.
On the hardware front, the BSVI variant will have the same specifications as the outgoing model. The twin-sided springs at the rear and the conventional telescopic suspension forks for the front wheel are the same. The back wheel gets drum brakes whereas the front wheel could come with disc options. Other features seem identical.
