Hero Honda Glamour PGM - FI

My most embarrassing moment? the first fuel injected in the country out for a spin and, after, becoming the first to run the bike dry. A chap me about the bike. I patiently the Glamour FI’s USP to him.

He and says, ‘Still runs out of eh?’ I shrug back and him, ‘That’s not the bike’s it’s Joshua’s.’ He walks thinking, ‘Wiseass!’

Current notwithstanding, I’ve had a good on the bike. But before I go into I’ll just quickly the Glamour/Super Splendor story. The Splendor and the Glamour were with the intention of allowing to upgrade to 125cc motorcycles their 100cc staples.

The 125cc motor was an all-new but stuck to the almost standard frame and horizontally mounted configuration. Along with the minor jump in power and the ‘Quantum Core’ motor a roughly 5 kpl rise in average economy.

On our tests, both proved to be good motorcycles, if not the exciting of the 125s out there. The felt solid, the gearbox was handling was efficient and the ride was eminently acceptable. We did have our of course.

We still maintain the Glamour’s colour and stickers are a bit he is, ladies and gentlemen, the Understater over the top, while the Splendor looked simple than super. In the showrooms, told that while the Splendor did fine, the Glamour fewer takers than especially since Govinda is a now, and no longer a champion of colour composition or pelvic

Since the two launches, Hero had been quiet until Kant Munjal, the managing of the company, announced that a injected small capacity was due for launch. He revealed this the company’s 2005-06 financial release. He also said counting variants, Hero is planning eight launches this financial year.

The goal behind the was to reduce the total emission of from new vehicles by roughly one while simultaneously raising economy by thirty per cent. The for the changes was taken as 1995 and the was supposed to deliver the hardware in

The Asaka RD centre, where the was orchestrated, realised that motorcycles are the staple of many and therefore success in the project be very good for a large of prospective Honda customers, and the in the general.

The project was, of course, not to the Glamour FI, but clearly mentioned air-cooled 125cc or smaller were well within its The Asaka men successfully downsized the of a PGM-FI system (its meant that cars and capacity motorcycles have its primary users) to fit a much format.

The Glamour FI is the first of the Honda motorcycles to incorporate the of that project. Honda has announced that PGM-FI become common and it plans to it on most of its worldwide motorcycles by the end of The Honda Wave 125i, a market step-through that the system, has been in the market July 2003.

From what we can tell, the of the PGM-FI small capacity was the 125/150 Pantheon which was in Italy in December 2002.
