Call it a result of a lot of prayers or HMSI very recently the upgrade to its long time Unicorn and dubbed it as CB Unicorn This launch makes the 5th bike to use the same 150cc in different tunings. It was first on the Unicorn followed by Achiever, CBZ and Hunk and now on the Dazzler.

The interesting part is that all the are currently on sale, either on or Hero Honda’s showrooms.

new offering comes with a lot of and luring features and here we a first look at all of them:

Honda has paid special on the looks of this bike. The has been laden with styling, fiery looking fairing with screenless cowl, Honda’s emblem huge side cowls to Twister, twin tone sporty half chain and an attractive pointed tail.

Honda has increased the power of this bike by 0.7 bhp with the going up to 14bhp in contrast to produced by the older mill. makes it more powerful Achiever and CB Unicorn but still than Hunk and Extreme. The power is now produced 500rpm at 8500 compared to Unicorn’s rpm.

Torque output constant at 12.8 Nm but again the produces it at a higher rpm of 6500 to 5500 of the older engine. All signifies that the bike be a higher revving bike.

DISC: Dazzler becomes the bike among Honda’s arsenal to sport a 220mm Nissin disc brake as Front remains the same Nissin rotor.

DIGITAL CONSOLE: Better than never! Dazzler becomes the first bike Hondas 150cc arsenal has been endowed with a digital console. The assembly of an analogue tachometer (which now at 9250 rpm from the 9000 for the model), regular information and a blue backlit digital which displays speed in big letters, tripmeter, clock and a meter.

WEIGHT REDUCTION: like Honda has understood the of saving every little on a bikes overall characteristics, is a full 8 kilograms lighter Unicorn. As a result, we might it to be slightly more flickable the older version.

ALTERED All the dynamics have been smaller on this new bike. cut short to 2073mm (from Breadth reduces to 754mm 756mm) and height trimmed to 1085mm (from 1100mm). also finds itself at 1328mm (from 1340mm) and the ground clearance has not been

The bike stands only taller to the ground as compared to the 179mm. In all, Dazzler is a bike as compared to CB Unicorn. gives us a small glimpse of has Honda gained those 8 of weight advantage from.

OF KICKER: In sharp contrast to conservative thought process, the has given away the kick A big question which struck our was, WHY? Others do it their bikes have riding positions and to save the of facing the CBZ Classic-like hassles of the footpeg to kick start the Dazzler comes with a commuter oriented seating and Honda could have accommodated a kicker at its original

This would further away conservative customers who feel a machine is incomplete a kick start.

HIGH EFFICIENCY: Quite akin to Dazzler has also been to return FE figures of 60kmpl Indian Mode. On road, we feel this bike be slightly less frugal CB Unicorn.

SMALLER FUEL Unicorn boasted a huge with a fuel carrying of 13 liters but Dazzlers tank has made slimmer with a of 1 liter in fuel carrying

NEW TIRES: HMSI has reverted to 17 broader rubbers for this Specifications for the front are 80/100 17 2.75 * 18) and rear are 110/80 17 100/90 18). Tuff up on the Unicorn also makes way for rubber on this machine.

Though no claims have made by HMSI we expect bike’s performance to be slightly than the older Unicorn in performance. However, existing CB might still remain a in-city tool with performing better where revs are required.

OTHER Vibrations dampeners, Maintenance 12Volt 4Ah Maintenance Free (The older Unicorn with 12V 7Ah), Viscous Air etc

For owning this bike will have to pay a premium the existing Unicorn and why not, bike comes loaded so much! On road Pune, costs Rs. 71,790 which it Rs 4000 costlier than the Unicorn (CB Unicorn costs Rs OTR Pune).

With all the added and tweaks this bike like a good prospect.

However, on second thoughts the price tag lingering around the FZ (FZ 16 costs Rs 73k OTR Pune), a comparison these two becomes inevitable.

doesn’t have FZ like breaking looks, nor does it insane power like the nor the homogonous torque of the FZ but what it over is the decent-looker better factor. So does it make a buy at the increased price? Wait for a test drive as we dig deep to the same question!

HONDA CB DAZZLER: FIRST LOOK

it a result of a lot of prayers or cursing, very recently launched the to its long time warhorse and dubbed it as CB Unicorn Dazzler. launch makes Dazzler the 5th to use the same 150cc engine in tunings. It was first used on the followed by Achiever, CBZ Extreme and and now on the Dazzler.

The interesting part is all the bikes are currently on sale, on HMSI’s or Hero Honda’s This new offering comes a lot of firsts and luring features and we take a first look at all of

1)LOOKS: Honda has paid emphasis on the looks of this The bike has been laden aggressive styling, fiery bikini fairing with front cowl, Honda’s embossed huge side similar to Twister, twin seats, sporty half cover and an attractive pointed

2)ENGINE: Honda has increased the output of this bike by 0.7 bhp the output going up to 14bhp in to 13.3bhp produced by the older This makes it more than Achiever and CB Unicorn but lesser than Hunk and The peak power is now produced higher at 8500 compared to 8000 rpm. Torque remains constant at 12.8 Nm but the engine produces it at a higher rpm of compared to 5500 of the older

All this signifies that the would be a higher revving

3)REAR DISC: Dazzler the first bike among 150cc arsenal to sport a rear Nissin disc as standard. Front remains the 240mm Nissin rotor.

CONSOLE: Better late never! Dazzler also the first bike among 150cc arsenal which has endowed with a semi console. The assembly comprises of an tachometer (which now redlines at rpm from the 9000 for the earlier regular information lights and a backlit digital speedometer displays speed in big bold tripmeter, clock and a fuel

5)WEIGHT REDUCTION: Seems Honda has understood the importance of every little kilogram on a overall characteristics, Dazzler is a 8 kilograms lighter than As a result, we might expect it to be more flickable than the version.

6)ALTERED DIMENSIONS: All the have been made on this new bike. Length cut to 2073mm (from 2095mm), reduces to 754mm (from and height trimmed down to (from 1100mm). Wheelbase finds itself shorter at (from 1340mm) and even the clearance has not been spared. The stands only 162mm to the ground as compared to the earlier In all, Dazzler is a smaller as compared to CB Unicorn.

This gives us a small of where has Honda gained 8 kilograms of weight advantage

7)OMISSION OF KICKER: In sharp to Honda’s conservative thought the company has given away the start. A big question which our mind was, WHY? do it because their bikes sporty riding positions and to the rider of facing the CBZ Classic-like of folding the footpeg to kick the bike. Dazzler comes a very commuter oriented posture and Honda could easily accommodated a kicker at its place.

This would shoo away conservative who still feel a machine is without a kick start.

FUEL EFFICIENCY: Quite to Unicorn, Dazzler has also claimed to return FE figures of under Indian Mode. On however, we feel this would be slightly less than CB Unicorn.

9)SMALLER TANK: Unicorn boasted a tank with a fuel capacity of 13 liters but Dazzlers has been made slimmer a loss of 1 liter in fuel capacity.

10)NEW TIRES: has reverted to 17 incher broader for this bike. Specifications for the are 80/100 17 (from 2.75 * 18) and are 110/80 17 (from 100/90 Tuff up tubes on the Unicorn makes way for Tubeless rubber on machine.

11)PERFORMANCE: Though no have been made by we expect this bike’s to be slightly better than the Unicorn in outright performance. existing CB Unicorn might remain a better in-city with Dazzler performing where higher revs are

12)OTHER TIDBITS: Vibrations Maintenance Free 12Volt 4Ah Free Battery (The Unicorn comes with 12V Viscous Air Filter etc

For owning bike customers will to pay a premium over the existing and why not, this bike loaded with so much! On Pune, Dazzler costs Rs. which makes it Rs 4000 than the existing Unicorn (CB costs Rs 67,708 OTR Pune).

all the added gadgets and tweaks bike seems like a prospect. However, on second with the price tag lingering the Yamaha’s FZ (FZ 16 costs Rs 73k OTR Pune), a between these two becomes Dazzler doesn’t have FZ ground breaking looks, nor it carry insane power the Apache, nor the homogonous torque of the FZ but it carries over is the decent-looker mileage factor.

So does it a good buy at the increased price? for a thorough test drive as we dig to answer the same question!
