Hi All, This I am writing with three in mind. My first aim is to try and guide the into buying a bike and the pros and cons as honestly as I Secondly, I see that Dazzler is not as a bike as good as it is.

So I will try to some good things of course the bad ones too) up

And finally, there is a prospect of a superbike scale model at my should the judges find review worthy of the same. My exposure to thrill beyond max of an ATB was on Vespa NV Spl. Fast some years and we have a guy for the best in the market in 2010.

So let us get to the key drivers in my case.


I am a 29 year old Software Engineer average height and weight and 65 kilos). I needed a bike for office commute and occasional on highway.

The Wish-List

Fresh I was bored by too many Pulsars and out there. So I was looking for something and just in.

Sporty bent of A 100% commuter bike was not to suite my taste so something was desired.

Technologically Advanced: My appetite for always enticed me towards marvels out there. So when the came to make a choice for a for myself, technological prowess was a driving factor.

Power, Safety: I am a bit aggressive rider and to travel 20-40 km daily in with trips to home would mean a 2.5-3 hr ride as well.

Pillion Some pillion comfort for the was desired for local commuting.


Based on the ‘fresh looks’ Pulsars, Apache, Stunner and were out of the list. No matter they promised, I was just too with the old looks. Unicorn was on the for reliability reasons but later because of waiting period and looks.

Then Honda Twister and added to that was a that a bigger 150 CC cousin is in the which got me waiting for any upcoming from Honda. The distributorship tell anything until showcased the Honda CB Unicorn in an exhibition that I saw in a post in at I was hopeful that the bike be launched quite soon.

made me dream in anticipation of the

In the meantime Suzuki’s GSx150R as a major diversion in my decision. GSx150R promised to be a stable and bike, I was more inclined the zippy and smaller Honda CB Dazzler. Moreover GSx150R some features offered by like rear disc I consider a great safety

GSx150R was heavier and less plus less power at my due to additional weight. 6 gears! I how I would have managed in the city traffic.

Suzuki was set aside even though it had a looking pillion seat and came as standard plus tires than Dazzler. reason was weak service of Suzuki and small market

Oh well! Yamahas was also The R15 lost at the utility factor. space was only suitable for and it looked style-overkill for a professional like me. Technologically it is a great with so many firsts in the

Then was the FZ, again I thought I had it as well.

Final Choice

It was CB Unicorn Dazzler all the way. it and then began the agonizing period which was prolonged by a few because I wanted a black The day came and it was mine on 14th 2010.

Now, I have riding this bike for one and I have had all the good experiences one exception which was due to delay in a faulty pass-switch by the dealership.

Other than that, it is a bike. I am summarizing some of its below while omitting the because they can be easily off the Honda website by a prospective


The stance is wonderful and to me it like an agile wild cat a broad muscular bust and a rear. The shiny two discs and caliper mounts add to the stance. The tank shrouds give it a kind of stance from the

Paint work is wonderful a pearly gloss that in the sunlight.


The bike is and has no nonsense parts. The bike engine as a stressed member of the That is, engine forms a of the frame and shares the load the frame. Because no frame is below the engine, it helps in the COG because engine is not mounted the frame.

Viscous air used require far less and are far more reliable than the ones. With new Maintenance battery for starter, they omitted the kick altogether. In one of riding, I have never had to the starter motor more twice even in severest of

Adjustable suspension adds to on road and comfort. Tires are tubeless and confidence at high speed by against sudden flats. In one of riding, I have not had a single

Rear disc brake was a purchase driver for me because it was a in 150CC segment and also great deal of confidence and to rear braking.

Build and

The bike fails at no details to workmanship however I felt tool box is bit small for the tool kit and I have to fold the service to fit it in the space provided. Apart that, all the components are well

This is something that I missing from the Pulsar and in Especially the parts that are and not machined. Paint is also top and the black one has a pearly glaze to it makes it shimmer in sunlight.

and Style

We have lots of goodies here starting a tachometer, electronic fuel and speedometer, an electronic trip blue backlit LCD and illuminated. I an engine kill switch and to reach for the keys each I have to stop the engine. note is a combination of its nimble while hinting at the underlying

Engine and Performance

The engine is a version of the time tested shared with CB Unicorn. The never seems to go out of breath. I driven it to three digit on the highway for long durations and it has seemed to be struggling.

Between 3K to RPM, it has almost uniform delivery in any given gear. is a breeze and no need to struggle neutrals. I have extracted a of around 45-50 Km in city riding at 60-80 kmph.

and Braking

I the rear mono add to stability especially when on the roads with some Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler never its composure whether on wet road or The bike’s seating is a bit low and engine is low enough due to the new frame design above) which causes it to be so that I can probably touch the while extreme cornering I try.

Well, I can go on and on into finder of this nice machine. to say that if you fall in my kind of and physique, this is the best within a great budget and assured. Please ask if you have any about this bike.

a good riding experience and put helmet on all the time.
