Feature-wise, Glamour wins with its charging points, Bluetooth, side-stand engine cut off, bank angle sensor and many more features.

Both the models boast of the i3S for a stellar commute. Glamour cashes in on its range of features but falls short due to subpar braking performance and coarse engine sounds. On the other hand, Super Splendour boasts of its fuel-efficient motor that is easy to maintain but lacks feature-wise.
Since both these models are commuter bikes, their prices are below the one lakh mark. You can buy the Hero Glamour BS6 model at Rs. 74,900 (ex-showroom), and Hero Super Splendor at Rs. 72,600 (ex-showroom). Nonetheless, purchasing a bike is still a significant investment, so you might want to opt for a two-wheeler loan to avoid burdening your pockets.
