Hero Glamour 125 BS6: Same Price Other Options
Confused about your options around the Rs 72,000 mark? Let us help you with that
Hero has launched the BS6-compliant Glamour 125 at Rs 72,400 (ex-showroom). What’s interesting is that the BS6 Glamour is only Rs 1,450 more expensive than before. And it is probably the least increment we have seen for a BS6-compliant two-wheeler so far. However, if the Glamour 125 is not your first choice, what other options are there for you? Well, we’ll help you with that.
Honda Shine BS6 (Rs 72,557):
Just for a couple of bucks more, you can have the newly-launched Honda Shine BS6. Now don’t get confused. There is a Shine SP and a normal Shine in Honda India’s portfolio. The updated Shine now makes 10PS of power and 11Nm of torque, making it a tad underpowered compared to the Glamour 125 BS6. Both even get a 5-speed transmission. And both get unique features as well. For example, the Glamour gets Hero’s new Auto Sail feature, whereas Honda has equipped the Shine with an ACG starter, just like most of the other BS6 Honda products. This is quite a close one. So we would prefer you to ride both motorcycles back to back to see which one suits you the best.
Bajaj Pulsar 150 Neon (Rs 75,200):
If you are looking for a sporty motorcycle in the same price bracket, Bajaj has something for you. The Pulsar 150 Neon costs around Rs 3,000 more than the Glamour. What you get for that extra amount is a motorcycle with a bit more power and looks considerably better (thanks to the neon highlights). However, you might want to act fast as Bajaj might launch the BS6 version of the bike, which is likely to be a bit more expensive than before, soon.
Okinawa Praise (Rs 73,400):
What if you want to join the green brigade? Then for you, we have the Okinawa Praise. The electric scooter has a peak power of 2500W and the brand claims it can go up to 70kmph. The most interesting aspect of this scooter is its range. Okinawa claims the Praise can cover around 170-200km on a single charge! And oh, you also get cool features like keyless entry, find my scooter function, a USB Port and a reverse gear.
TVS NTorq 125 Race Edition BS6 (Rs 72,455):
The TVS NTorq 125 is one of the sportiest scooters out there. It can really give a tough competition to almost any two-wheeler in the 125cc segment. Along with being a sporty scooter, it also comes with some segment-first features. For instance, the fully digital instrument console and Bluetooth connectivity. And if your budget is around Rs 72,000, the NTorq 125’s top-spec Race Edition might be the best option for you.
Suzuki Burgman Street Rs (Rs 77,900):
The Suzuki Burgman Street is the only maxi-scooter in India below the Rs 1 lakh mark. And recently, Suzuki had launched the BS6-compliant version of the Burgman Street, which has retained its power figure. While the BS6-compliant Burgman looks identical to the older model, Suzuki has brought a new matte paint option to help it stand apart. So if you are planning to buy a two-wheeler for daily commutes, which is comfortable and sporty, then the Burgman Street is the right option for you.
