Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme – Review

The legendary Hero Honda CBZ which wooed the youth in the late 90s is back again, but this time with near perfect technical stipulation of every bikers dreams and a design that makes you fall in love again. But this time not just with body stickers and few new graphics.

Hero Honda CBZ went for technological upgrade and style and design tweak and came out as the new Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme.

The competition in the segment of 150cc motorbikes is so fierce, and the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturing company Hero Honda is not deterred by its arch rivals TVS Motors and Bajaj Auto. This has been proved by the unveiling of Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme.

Honda had to phase out the CBZ model as the vehicle had some engine troubles and it has been a model giving low fuel efficiency and release the new CBZ X-Treme. The company believes it has come up with the whole new refurbished model in the X-Treme and pitted it against its adversaries such as Bajaj Pulsar 150cc and TVS Apache.

As regards the looks, it’s the cool look of the bike that is appealing to most bike lovers and its designing has taken more than six months by a team of nerds that included members of Honda Japan as well. The designing style of Hero Honda CBZ X Treme 150cc bike takes has resemblance with many 600cc bikes abroad such as the CBR.

It comes in 5 color options of Black, Blazing Red, Sports Red, Boon Silver Metallic and Vibrant Blue Metallic. The headlights are completely different from its predecessor; a trapezoidal look with the turn indicators completely merging with headlamps and the LEDs giving altogether new looks.

The grip handlebars for the pillion riders are changed to reflect contemporary styling. The knee recess helps six-footer and an average height person ride the new Hero Honda CBZ 150cc with comfort. The black alloy wheels and the fuel tank go well with the contour of the body. Tail lamps are changed and they are now quite an attraction besides the new digital console and body-colored rear view mirrors. The attractive windscreen resists wind speed and adds beauty to the beast.

CBZ Xtreme

Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme runs on a power mill of 149.2 cc engine which renders good pick up and better mileage than the erstwhile CBZ. The 4-stroke, single cylinder, air-cooled engine generates maximum power output of 10.6KW@8500rpm and maximum torque of 12.8 Nm@6500 rpm. Transmission is 5 speed constant mesh and the top speed with CBZ X-Treme is 113kph and it becomes the USP of XTreme.

Fuel efficiency of this bike is approximately 48kpl (although it could have been better than this). At the heart of the bike is Hero Honda’s ATFT (Advanced Tuble Flow Induction) Technology) similar to Honda Hunk. The AMI (Advanced Microprocessor Ignition) System makes it efficient and the self and kick-start options coupled with disc brakes makes it one reliable performer. The new engine provides with maximum efficiency even on wet road conditions.

Comfort and Handling:
Riding experience on Xtreme can be best described as exciting and thrilling and comfortable. The tuff-up tyres to give stress free experience even when the tyre gets punctured. With comfortable seating position, the bike has satisfactory ground clearance capacity.

Popularity:
This bike is priced at 54,500-56,500 (Ex-showroom, Delhi). If you look for safety, comfort coupled with glamorous looks in a bike, the new Honda CBZ Xtreme could be just the one and cannot be compared to its peers such as Pulsars or Unicorns. But unfortunately it’s not gone to people as much as it should have really gone.

      6.what is the main function of CDI? -Common rail direct fuel injection(CDI)-it is a modern variant of direct fuel injection system for petrol and diesel engines.

      7.In which gear Torque with speed? 1st gear..

      8.compare the relationship of torque with speed?- torque is only a function of speed if you are refering to the mechanics of generating torque. IE. engines have optimal speeds for generating maximum torque. but torque is a measure of twisting force, and is independent of speed…:)

    Hello.
    I have a cbz xtreme bike. I think it’s a very good looking bike. It is very comfortable bike for any one. But if you are very short then it’s not for you to control.
    If any one wants to buy a perfect bike then i will say that cbz is one.

  29. Andrew

    I bought the New model CBZ Extreme 2011 . Bike is good. It gives good control and milleage.
    Digital speedometer s awesome.
    Split handle is too good.

    Dont give your bike to service @ Sri Chandu Motors @ Singasandra Bangalore.

    The Bike Service they offer is VERY VERY BAD. Dont give the bike to them for service.

    I had 2 bad experiece with them. Once after the service i found there is SCRATCHES on the Silencer. They dont know how to clean the Silencer if it has the mud. Asked them how this happend they would reply it was there. we did not do anyting.

    Second time they damaged the handle part. If you go and ask them they wont accept their mistake and point it as it was there previously.
    They would give all logical pathetic reply
    The Service of Bike is VERY VERY BAD.

    Bike will be returned to you with Scratches.

    Till you buy the bike they will talk nicely after that They Treat you Very BAD

    • Josse
