Hero CBZ

Complete details of CBZ Motorcycle

Launched in India in 1999. CBZ is not in production now. Discontinued in 2005.

Launched in 1999, it was the first performance motorcycle of India. The CBZ was one of the models developed by Hero Honda. Until the launch of CBZ, there was nothing called a powerful motorcycle. For most of the Indians, motorcycles were something meant to travel from one place to another in an economic and most convenient way. The revolution of sports bike in India was started by Hero Honda CBZ, later take on by Bajaj Pulsar. Moreover, Hero Honda CBZ has launched way ahead of the time in India. It had to compete with the popular, 100cc, commuter motorcycles with high fuel efficiency. However, after ceasing the alliance with the Honda, the model was discontinued in 2005 followed by CBZ Xtreme. Later, Hero MotoCorp renamed the moniker to 'Xtreme', which doesn't have that extra flavour of CBZ.

The Hero Honda CBZ was powered by the original Honda 156.8cc, 4-stroke, single cylinder, SOHC engine which is a scaled down version of the famous CB series. It was an oversquare engine meeting the Euro1 standards with accelerator pump for superior pickup. Unlike other carburettors we have seen, the Keihin slide type carburettor used in the CBZ features larger spring operated nozzle to deliver richer air-fuel mixture into the combustion chamber to escalate the power delivery. The engine was mated to 5-speed constant mesh gearbox and delivered a maximum power of 12.5 bhp @ 8000 rpm and peak torque of 12.4 Nm @ 6500 rpm. It was the first 4-stroke bike India to get 5-speed gearbox. This motorbike had a top speed of 115kmph making it as one of the fastest bikes of those days. Moreover, it can go from 0 to 60kmph in 5seconds.

The CBZ features 12.5-litre fuel tank offering a minimum of 600 km range. The braking duties of the bike were managed by 240 mm Nissin disc brakes at the front and 130 mm drum brake at the rear. The suspension system consists of a hydraulic telescopic fork at the front and swing arm with hydraulic damper- 5-step adjustment system at the rear. Interestingly, it had a unique air injection system in the exhaust port, which introduces fresh air into the system to meet emission standards.

The first version of Hero Honda CBZ is one of the best 150cc bikes ever launched in India. The only problem was low mileage. But a real biker wont worry about low mileage.

I have never find any bike in the market which has the qualities that the first model cbz has, i still own the first model cbz many people have asked me whether i am selling my bike, and my answer is no, very comfortable to ride , well maintained ,its stats in 1 kick my bike is 16 years old still its the perfect, millage in TPFC mode is near to 35-40 depended on load and i normal mode 45-48, you get a perfect feel of drive when you drive at the speed of 30 and you get a thrilling speed of ride when u drive at a speed above 60, i love this bike very much, as some said above honda should launch this bike back in market and should make its parts available because there are lots many CBZ fans like me.

First model CBZ is my first and last choice. When I saw the add on national TV (DD). I was just crazy about this bike and still that craziness is there. I love CBZ only. Its just simply perfect bikes in all the way. I have a Karizma R but I only love CBZ.. If it come again on the market with the same looks I ll definitely buy it.. Still I used to ask when I visits Hero Showrooms..
