New Hero Honda Glamour and CBZ Extreme

Well, Hero Honda has gone for the revamp of two major products from it’s stable, after the Hero and Honda split, and looks like, the Indian designers of Hero are in a state of utter shock and dismay on the departure of their Japanese counter parts of Honda. What has come out to be as the final products of the new Hero Honda Glamour and CBZ Extreme, is a true example of a set of people who are left stranded on an island and have no clue what so ever as to where to start from.

To say the truth, I personally never liked the looks of both the bikes, even, though, both the bikes held their ground quite well, in the segment portfolio for Hero Honda. But then, it was very visible, that Glamour suffered in the presence of other 125cc, specially after the advent of the CB Stunner, and the CBZ Extreme was almost cannibalized by it’s own sibling, the Hero Honda Hunk, apart from getting a beating from the other 150cc bikes in the market. So, if the current think tank at Hero are thinking that the current revamp of both the machines is gonna change that trend, then in my opinion, it’s an uphill task on a very steep slope and summit from here is not even visible.

The previous model of the Hero Honda Glamour/Glamour Fi, looked much more refreshing as compared to the revamped version, from every aspect. The features which have been revamped for the new Glamour/Glamour Fi are –

New graphics

Analog and Digital meter console

New headlamp visor

Aerodynamic (??) Tank Air Scoops

New Exhaust muffler

From the technical specs nothing has changed for the new Glamour.

The same prodigy extends itself to the new CBZ Extreme, where the earlier version looks absolutely stunning in front of the current one.

With the 2011 Hero Honda CBZ Extreme, Hero Honda actually took it’s legacy to the next level. Somehow they managed to make the CBZ Extreme, which was already not one of best looker, look even worse. I mean what the hell Hero Honda was thinking.

Just look at the disc brakes, they look coming straight out of the 1969 Honda CB750.

The revamped features of the new CBZ Extreme are –

New Analog-Digital meter console

Clip ons

New Secure Ignition Switch with Key Shutter

Anti Drag Fuel Tank Scoops (??)

New Head Lamp fairing

Front and Rear (optional) Disc

Split seats

Remodeled tail

New Exhaust muffler

For new CBZ Extreme too, none of the specs has changed apart from the above mentioned.

The complete bike looks very badly out of proportion to say the least. It seems like the Designers and Engineers were in a fit to complete a product over night and somehow managed to hit the dead line.

Really the fate of the two new releases from Hero Honda’s stable are dangling in doldrums and now it’s up to the trusted customer base of Hero Honda as to how they react.
