Editorial Review of the Hero MotoCorp Glamour PGM Fi bike

The Hero Glamour PGM-Fi is easily credited as the motorcycle which brought the concept of fuel injection in motorcycles for the masses in India. Back in 2006, when Hero, the then Hero Honda, launched the Glamour PGM-Fi, the Indian bike market took a note of it, as the fuel injection technology was only deterred to superbikes. The Glamour PGM-Fi, then, was the first Indian bike to come with this feature which not only improved the performance and fuel efficiency of the motorcycle, but also created an all new niche segment, of which it is still the flag bearer.

The motorcycle, just refreshed in May 2014, receives two tone paint schemes, which sport minimalistic graphics on the body panels. The motorcycle, on the first shot, resembles the same design of the standard Glamour, which means the bike features the same trapezoidal headlamp with a large bikini fairing up front. The fuel tank of the motorcycle has a simple design with adequate knee recesses to fit in the rider comfortably. It also comes with plastic cowls beneath the fuel tank on both the sides which further enhance the beefiness of the otherwise small looking unit. The rear section of the motorcycle is the same design which the original Glamour came up with and engulfs the tail lamp within it. The motorcycle comes with all black theme for the engine and alloy wheels. The Hero Glamour PGM-Fi now comes with an all new instrument console with a part analog-part digital theme and has an analog speedometer with a small display showcasing fuel gauge, odometer and tripmeter, along with the other basic tell tale lights.

Powering this warrior of Hero Motocorp is the same decade old 125cc Honda engine, which has been retuned in the latest model to give out 9.1 PS of power and 10.4 Nm of torque at the most. Thanks to the fuel injection technology, the fueling on this motorcycle is much linear and smooth, which further enhances the performance of the motorcycle. The motorcycle is vibe free at lower speeds, which only gets noisy when it's revved hard. The engine is torquey enough to accomplish the city duties with ease, while at the same time, occasional highway jaunts can also be done without any hassle.

The ride quality of Glamour PGM-Fi reminds you that it is a typical Hero, which means battling potholes and uneven surfaces can be fought without much grief. The suspension setup is the standard combination found in every other Hero, which includes front telescopic forks and rear five way adjustable coil springs. The ride quality is plush enough to keep your back free of pain. The brakes have enough bite and thanks to Hero, it comes with an optional choice of front disc brake too.

The Hero Glamour PGM-Fi is surely one of the most technologically advanced motorcycles available in the Indian market. Though it has its own set of negatives like having a price tag reminiscent of 150cc motorcycles, but still it is one of those perfect tools for daily city commuting that does all of its jobs in a pretty decent way, which makes it value for money, even after being pricey.

Pros Look is average but mileage is poor also it is a powerless bike

Cons Nothing special in this at the cost of Rs.65000 on road price which is about 15% more than base model but same KMPL

Very bad after sale service you have to wait for months. Major problems starts after 3
month and its solution is not aviable in the agency as well as in the market. Please
consult before buying. I purchased the bike in oct 2011 and just after 3rd service it
stops working it remains at agecy for two months but no solution now its case is in
consumer court. No help from regional office and head office till 24 oct 2012 and still
waiting. contact no. 08679874520
