Hero Glamour for Sale in Sri Lanka

The unique motorcycle model known as the Glamour, which is being manufactured by the Hero MotoCorp of India, is without a doubt one of the most successful 125 cc displacement bikes to be launched to the market at the beginning of the 21st century. While its refresh design has attracted many riders in Sri Lanka, its superb performance, especially under challenging conditions in the island, has helped it to gain a stable spot among other midrange motorcycles seen in the country.

This, in fact gives the bike a very impressive acceleration for short distances, which is recorded at a bit more than 7.0 seconds, from 0-60 km/h. For a native motorcycle rider, this swift performance is extremely useful, particularly while riding in the cities of Sri Lanka.
