First of all we should brief a little both of the bikes as intro. The Hero Glamour is the bike which was developed in cooperation of Honda and Hero on 2005. That was marketed previously as Hero Honda Glamour. After the separation of Hero from Honda now it is Hero Glamour.

Exteriors – Hero Glamour VS Honda CB Shine

Before entering the core comparison therefore the technical part we should discuss about the visual part. You will definitely agree with me that the exterior is one of the important part of a bike to evaluate.

Coming first with Hero Glamour it’s a very good looking commuter from Hero. But credit definitely goes to the previous Hero Honda R&D team. In present time Hero just deliberately enhanced some feature and graphics. The new Hero Glamour is more aggressive looking than the previous.

On the other side Honda CB Shine is designed with very decent looks and graphics. It does not look aggressive but very pretty in design. Its simplicity of exteriors made this bike very much fitted with all type of rider’s personality.

To make comparison Hero Glamour VS Honda CB Shine there is very few corners can be compared. And those are very minimal issues to be compared. So here we can ignore them as both bikes are very good looking and choice varies person to person and of-course choice is yours.

Here you should keep in mind that both the engine designed by Honda. The Glamour has handed over to Hero but in parallel they developed the CB Shine. But both the engine has huge dissimilarities.

The significant dissimilarity is the engine alignment. The Hero Glamour powered with the horizontal engine. In a word this type of alignment is featured to be fuel efficient commuter. Less friction against force of gravity gives effortless movement of piston and connecting rod. So the power decay is minimal.

But disadvantage of such engine is higher rating of power production ruins the piston and cylinder life. So most of the time such engine does not use for higher power production but this kind of engine is perfect for fuel efficient commuter.

On the other side the Honda CB Shine comes with vertical aligned engine. This type of engine is more capable to produce higher figure of power. This engine is more durable than the vertical aligned engine. But vertical aligned engine consumes more fuel than the horizontal aligned engine as this type of engine has to work against the pressure of gravity.

You if you see the specification table can see the Hero Glamour produces less power than the Honda CB Shine. Both the bike produces quite same figure of torque.

Here comparatively lower compression, horizontal aligned engine, low RPM operation all the thing made Hero Glamour as a fuel efficient commuter. But it lacks power than the rival CB Shine.

In comparison comparatively higher compression, vertical aligned engine, higher rev capability, shorter intake channel made the Honda CB Shine a powerful commuter. But this feature somewhat sacrificed the fuel efficiency than the Hero Glamour. But the user got the opportunity to exercise more power.
