Hero Honda CBZ

The Hero Honda CBZ, launched in early 1999 by Hero Honda Motors India Ltd, was the first sports oriented 4-stroke bike also called revolution on Indian bikes. Sporting an original Honda 156.8 cc engine, it made good 12.8PS of power which was sufficient enough to propel it to a Speedo indicated 130 km/h. The styling was out of the exemplary. The bike looked very sporty and was aesthetically perfect. Sufficient mid-range torque ensured a 0-60 km/h (0-40 mph) in just 5 seconds. The over-square engine, that met Euro1, was fed by a Keihin slide type carburetor with accelerator pump for better pick-up. It featured a single front disc brake, which was second in India (First came enfield fury, a mad swirling two stroker collabrated with zundap Germany). It also featured the first 5-speed gearbox on a 4-stroke bike. It had excellent acceleration figures, for a relatively heavy 130 kg Kerb weight. The handling of this bike was the highlight. It was capable of doing corners at relatively high speeds without hiccups. The Latest edition to the CBZ family is the New sporty CBZ X-treme It has LED based Tail cum brake light which too is becoming a standard feature in Indian made bikes after its introduction in Bajaj Pulsar in 2006. In addition to this the alloy wheels also give a great stylish looks. The mileage is not that bad either which is one of the biggest shortcomings in the case of Bajaj Pulsar
