Pull the trigger off. Now, you have the machine, the much awaited and much rumoured, the one and only 2013 Honda CB Trigger. Precisely appears to be a street machine and obviously some amount of naked behaviour too. This is the one from the Japanese motorcycle pioneer after its way perfected bi-wheeler, the CB Unicorn. For sure, this will rule the 150cc commuter segment of India and will replace the kingdom which is currently throned by the CB Unicorn. While parting away from its erst while partner, Hero Motocorp, Honda had announced that the company would become the ultimate two-wheeler seller of the country. So as to achieve the goal, Honda is rolling out innumerable bi-wheelers through out. The CB Trigger is the fourth machine to get launched after the Activa, Dio and the Aviator this year.
The CB Trigger mounts an aggressive fairing even if it is of zero fairings. Kudos to the one who crafted out such a sporty motor-machine on road. Being wedded with a newly and a jazzy headlight, that is umbrellaed by a visor, that has scoops at both sides, enriches the gaudy in it. Its 12 liter fuel tank, which is placed along with unique floating side cowls, is the other fountain of attraction. Honda's 3D logo on the fuel tank also assures a dazzling visual aspect to the bike.
The CB Triggers's two-row LED backlight sparkles the eyes of followers while braking and glitters the street at nigh-rides. Its 6-spoke alloy wheels at both ends, which are mounted by disc brake, certainly provide some sporty smoke to the spectator. The exhaust is way masculine built in unique sketch. Along with these measurements, its fully digitalized meter tags the bike to be the next generation bi-wheeler.

Dual disc brake would really strike for Honda, However, it is optional and not the part of the standard variant. Its braking system never ends here as it is installed of Combi Brake System (CBS), that makes both brakes applied on real time.
The Trigger's tubeless tyres at both ends not only care less payment but also safety of the rider while rapid puncture is occurred. This of course improves riders confidence.
The bike has both electric and kick start. Usually, Honda engines struggle to get started in dawn, and once it is cooled. So the presence of a kick start surely increments the confidence of the rider to go remote drives, and alloys to kick-start the machine even if the battery is down.

Meanwhile, the conventional air filters requires cleaning in ever 4000 kms and replacement in 12,000 kms. The use of viscous filter also ensure better performance to the machine.
