India gets another sportster from Big Red

We were by the large amount of traffic by our news and subsequent review of little 109cc CB Twister. a new commuter directed at the streetbike in India. So when Honda launched a “top-class” 150cc in India, we wanted to find out how it and if this petite little makes any sense for American

Honda ’s first motorcycle in was the conservatively styled Unicorn, a bike that launched in There have been successful scooters as well as Honda bikes since, but were boring commuter below 150cc, with sporty enough to satiate bike enthusiasts on a shoestring who require something quite a bit of a CBR1000RR.

The CB Unicorn Dazzler is a 150cc bike that to bridge this gap, Honda’s latest styling to

Unique, with styling from the VFR1200F, this is relatively athletic and lean, smart alloy rims and paint.

The Dazzler’s front end is by a beaky-like headlight, providing a well-spread beam. Compact, instruments are dominated by a large with an ice-blue readout motorcycle data, as well as the

Switchgear on this little is comprehensive, with a pass flasher and push-to-cancel indicators although we found the Dazzler’s don’t work as well as we have liked, and the bike lacks an engine-kill switch.

You can expect palm-friendly grips, levers and neat mirrors show waver-free rear An up-market touch is the Dazzler’s aircraft-type fuel-filler cap. Honda’s lithe 12-liter tank ends in broad, side cowls but feels too offering little grip for

The Dazzler comes with an four-… powerplant, with a vertically placed and air-cooled Twin-valves punch within the head, with the cylinder almost square bore/… of 57.3mm x 57.8mm. It’s a refined engine.

The cable-operated is well-weighted, and the five-speed gearbox smoothly.

The Dazzler’s 149.1cc is based on its Indian predecessor, the with a modified, more high-lift camshaft, larger CV carburetor and shorter gear all aimed at infusing some zip in time-tested engine. Features forward are an offset crankshaft, bearings (to lower friction and efficiency) on the rocker arms and a air-cooling jacket that within the head.

Honda claims a peak of 14 horsepower at 8500 rpm, maximum torque of 9.4 ft-lbs is out at 6500 rpm.

Smooth and sounding, this Honda an edge over other 150s and provides its rider a and peppy feel. The Dazzler clean and vibe-free through its powerband, strongest through to redline before it slams its limiter just below rpm. Like all Honda’s, the engine imparts a reliable, feel.

Gear ratios perfectly spaced.

Our performance confirmed the Honda as zippy for a fuel-efficient 150, but it’s no fire-breather. It reaches 60 kph (36 mph) in seconds from rest, en to 100 kph (62.5 mph) achieved in seconds. Flat out with the pinned to its stop in top gear, its top is a genuine 114 kph (71 mph).

Honda’s provided the Dazzler a downtube frame, which on its engine as a stressed member, in a 304-lb fully fueled Suspension is a telescopic fork in with a monoshock (no linkage) working together with a swingarm. Seventeen-inch rims are fare, front and rear.

The seats its rider in an upright, riding posture, forward in the and close to a narrow handlebar. Its is perfectly padded, while the offers ride that is firm than plush, well sorted. The Dazzler is but also feather-light and neutral to through urban conditions.

It well even when fast over badly roads, and holds its line when keeled over in corners at high speed.

So that’s the a handsome commuter with an and proven engine, but we were a little more from – more in terms of performance and in terms of handling, to help new and significantly more expensive to differentiate itself from existing 150cc model in the Unicorn. We expected this, in mind the Dazzler will alongside the Unicorn, and does not it.

Still, the Dazzler is hard to as a well built, light-handling and fuel-efficient 150cc bike. One proudly flaunts Honda’s winged badges emblazoned on its tank.
