Hero Honda HUNK

HUNK is based on the same 149.2 cc Unicorn engine, which has spawned the earlier Hero Honda bikes like Achiever and CBZ Xtreme. The original 149.2 cc Unicorn engine has bore X stroke of 57.3 mm X 57.8 mm, which is same for Achiever, Xtreme as well as HUNK. The operative difference between the Unicorn and Hero Honda HUNK engines that Hunk engine has been tweaked for higher power output, same as the CBZ Xtreme engine.

While the original Unicorn engine produces 13.3 bhp (9.9 kw) at 8000 rpm, the same engine has been tweaked to produce 14.2 bhp (10.6 kw) at 8500 rpm in Hunk, which is same as CBZ-Extreme. Breathing through a CV carburetor, the Hunk engine produces a torque of 12.8 Nm at 6500 rpm at a compression ratio of 9.1. Idling is set at 1400 rpm.

The five-speed gearbox operates through a wet multi-plate clutch and ignition timing advance is precision controlled through an advanced microprocessor.

While technically in terms of engine, mechanicals and cycle parts, Hunk is the same as CBZ-Xtreme, the main difference is in looks. The most attractive aspect being the beefed up fuel tank shoulders which give it a most aggressive look. The headlamp is also different looking and more aggressive. Red colored speed0-od0 with chrome ring adds to its aggressive stance.

Inert-gas filled rear shock absorbers ensure a smooth ride, while a stepped pillion seat raises pillion height and allows pillion to look over riders’ shoulder rather than leaning to the side.

The accent in this bike is almost wholly on STYLE, yet some technological upgrades are also claimed. For one, this bike claims TFIT==Tumble-flow-Induction Technology, which is supposed to better mix air fuel and produce better combustion for better fuel efficiency, cleaner exhaust and improved ride-ability. Rear suspension is hyped as GRS==Gas Reservoir Suspension.

It has AKM==Anti-Kickback Mechanism which is supposed to prevent Enfield Bullet type Kickbacks. And finally it has the most important of all==SC2E==Spirited Core2 Engine. What all this means, I can only guess on the basis of what little I learnt at IIT.

What this delivers, buy it and find out.

To me it delivers a STYLE statement. Like Bajaj”s “”FEAR THE BLACK””. Now every manufacturer is offering bikes blacker than Bajaj. Hype acronyms like YEiS, DTSi, DTSF-i, Quantum Core, GLX, DLX, NXG, XYZ, ABC, POPAT etc. etc.

Give something a Hoo-Ha sounding name, and hype it. It is like religion. Hype it to believe it. The more the hype and louder the hype, the more the belief.

So don”t expect much difference in performance between CBZ Xtreme and Hunk. Hunk on road Pune price is cheaper than CBZ-Xtreme by Rs.548/-. Go for looks. Performance is same. Price is almost same.

Only looks are different.
