She’s got the look?

In a word, no. The fairing is all wrong and the relatively headlamp, mumps indicators and pilot lamp look Arnie’s nose on Pamela’s The rest of the bike is better, but quite messy in design

I have grown to like the lamp though, but I still think extending the yellow all the way across the large cluster was an idea. But it isn’t the styling that irks us. For a Hero the CBZ-X is decidedly under par for quality and fit-finish.

Like the fake plasto-aluminium meter plate, the unsightly welding on the (hidden partly by an under-articulated peg subframe), similar welds on the and the missing engine kill It also is rackety. Our brand new CBZ-X came with a loose right side an audible numberplate and a clackety Unexpected from a Hero really. But get this.

There is nothing more to about on the bike. Not one thing.

and shaker?

Oh yes. To cliche the up a bit, it moves the rider and up the competition. The re-tuned Unicorn has lost some of its class-leading It was a gentleman, it’s now a dude. The is more audible, has more and feels a lot more thrashy the Honda.

But, in return for those you get abundant and unending power. The and mid- are so pumped up that I was I’d find a Unicorn-like top-end. Thankfully, I couldn’t been more wrong.

Pin the and the CBZ-X loves it. It responds a 5.5 second burst to 60 kph (and like it’s doing it in clicks), creams the 100 kph mark contempt and finally lets up at its 112 kph top There’s no weak spots, no let up, a satisfyingly urgent rush I love it.

And while the engineers to isolate you from most of the that come with rpm and beyond running, the bike have parts that in the fun and games, when they be holding station in silence.

Slip the CBZ-X into and for the first few minutes it feels The light throttle and the torque are It can hurry along with urgency if you want to and this is a new for a Hero/Honda product for me.

Yes, the Karizma. It also happens to quite a few heads, and I think its the not the looks.


This is the handling package I’ve had the privilege of screaming around a on. Apart from BSM’s procession of big bikes, that is. The Honda (I’m tired of CBZ-X), as Joshua put it, ‘practically itself.’ It appears to receive via telepathy rather than the returns rich reams of and is just superb. Without unstable, the CBZ-X is miles on the turn-in than the new Pulsar

And the feeling of the torque pummeling you out of is brilliant. Get off the bike, climb any other 150 on the market, and your says, ‘There’s something with this.’ This is a achievement when you realise each of the other 150s to be a confident, capable corner in its own right.

Ride quality is good The bike doesn’t feel as as the Pulsar, but it has a Honda-familiar firm, feel. It easily absorbs the of the rough stuff, transmitting to constitute feedback. Overall, say the Pulsar bests the CBZ-X on front, but not by much. Braking is inspiring as well.

The only you could ask for, really, are much sportier OEM rubber say Bridgestones or Pirellis.

But personally, the looks, despite the lack of the 150cc motorcycle I would buy would be the Hero Honda CBZ I think it comes closest to my of a fun, fast and effortless motorcycle. Congratulations, Hero
