2013 Honda CB Trigger vs FZ-S

Imitation, they is the best form of flattery. by that, Yamaha would be pleased to see the new Honda CB Trigger. No, the isn’t a blatant copy of popular 150cc street the FZ-S, but the inspiration is more obvious.

Just take a at the Trigger’s fuel tank and you understand what I mean.

Honda CB Trigger vs Yamaha

However, I can sympathise with here. If I had launched a motorcycle in a that contributed significantly to the game, but, had failed the bike on a number of counts, I too have looked up at the best in and tried to incorporate its USPs.

The is, how successful has Honda been in so with the Trigger? But to get there, first see what really for the FZ-S. Styling is the Yamaha’s point, no arguments there.

With its beefy looking fat front forks, an aggressive unit and fatter tyres, it looks more muscular and than its 150cc engine allows it to be. And this aura of is something the Indian motorcyclist

Stickering on FZ’s clocks them look cheap.

It feels big and purposeful when you get It has a wide and flat handlebar, and the in relation to the tank is low, so the actually sits ‘in’ the than on it. The foot rests are but comfortably so, and everything in the rider’s is chunky; the view of the tank, the wrapped by the bikini fairing or the top triple clamp, all exude

The engine helps the FZ pack performance

Honda has tried to a more muscular styling for the in line with the Yamaha. So, it too a chiseled, large looking and a domineering headlamp unit. that’s where the focus adding visual mass

Unlike the Yamaha, which its side panels and some assorted plastic quite to concentrate the mass around the to give the bike a front stance, the Trigger is more visually, and that leaves it a more commuter-like attitude to the FZ-S. This, in fact, the purpose somewhat, particularly Honda already has a commuter in the The commuter feel continues you ride the Honda.

The handlebar on the isn’t as wide as the Yamaha, and the are lower and comparatively forward

The fully digital clocks richer too

What we do like the Trigger, is the way it rides. It has light but controls. The clutch is light but and the throttle response is crisp, and easy to modulate.

The engine is the same as on the Dazzler; the Trigger replaces. It displaces makes a little over of max power and is mated to a 5-speed The engine is smooth and has a decent low and mid grunt.

It doesn’t mind revved to its redline and transmits few vibes. The gearbox is light to use and too.

The Trigger’s engine is refined compared to the Yamaha

The gearbox is equally likeable if not and is, in fact, a bit better weighted. The though isn’t as smooth; one can more vibes at higher and it sounds more brash the Honda. Not that the 153.0cc, single doesn’t like trashed; you can keep revving it at the top all day long and it will continue to with enthusiasm throughout.

It also gives the FZ-S better performance. The Yamaha the 0-60kmph run in 5.2s and the quarter in 19.8s. The Trigger in comparison the two runs in 6.0s and 20.4s,

The difference in the top speeds of the two bikes is significant.

Another Yamaha USP has the bike’s dynamics. Thanks to the handlebar, good weight and relatively sharp steering the FZ is fantastic when it comes to direction changes. There’s any inertia or vagueness in its responses; you it turns. Simple.

And this equally well while through traffic or going up a winding ghat road. admirable is that the FZ manages quick responses with fat

The Trigger is no slouch when it to changing directions either. after the Yamaha, it feels composed come quick inputs. It doesn’t feel as either. On the highway and around corners though, the Honda is as good as the Yamaha. For the speeds can manage both feel in a straight line.

And even bends, both tip in predictably and a good amount of mechanical to keep the rider interested and But, if we had to choose between the two for a ride up the hills, it would be the it is only marginally better, but it is. And then its brakes offer bite and feel too.

As we see it Honda has done a good job the CB Trigger. It gets bits a rear disc brake and Braking System missing on the and all said and done, Honda be applauded for introducing such even in the 150cc class. the question is, at what price? At Rs on road in Mumbai, it is just for too much for a bike in this especially when the FZ-S costs Rs 81,000.

Sure, one can buy the basic Trigger for a under Rs 80,000, but with better presence, better and a higher fun to ride co-efficient, still very difficult to the Honda over the Yamaha.
