Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme

New CBZ Xtreme has all the Hero Honda hallmarks - engine refinement, slick-shifting smooth gearbox, top-of-the-class vibration isolation, low engine noise and quality components. The headlamp and fairing combo looks relatively simple and straightforward except for two features. The turn indicators, which are usually stalked and stick out on either side, have been integrated into the headlamp housing. The New CBZ Xtreme now has clear lens for the indicators. A new tinted cowl adds to the improved aerodynamics and cuts the glare on the bike's instrumentation for the rider.

The X-Treme's instrument cluster is also very different incorporating circular gauges of varied sizes. There are analogue gauges, including an engine-rpm meter, a speedometer and fuel gauge, in addition to high beam, turn and neutral indicators. The large fuel tank of the New CBZ X-Treme is shapely and seems to have borrowed a few lines from the Ambition. Tall riders will appreciate generous knee recesses built into the fuel tank. Body side panels at the side of the new bike become chunkier and more muscular as they meet at the broad tail lamp at the rear.

With the crisscrossing lines of these panels and the deep knee recesses in the fuel tank, the New X-Treme's side profile is clearly its strongest, most admirable angle. The tail lamp cluster features a segmented stop and brake light section with the turn indicators built into a single unit that wraps around the brake light's bottom side. LEDs have been used replacing the conventional bulbs. The new cbz xtreme now has clear lens for the indicators like the front indicators. The bike's wheelbase at 1,325mm is only a shade lesser than the Pulsar's. The ground clearance is an adequate 145mm. 18-inch mag wheels are offered at the front and the rear of the bike. While the front features a 2.75-inch regular tyre, the rear tyre is 100/90 in size, which has been combined with a Tuff-up tube for the added advantage of a relatively puncture-free performance.

The only sore point about New CBZ Xtreme is the front looks which looks very small. With a proportionately small front fairing and headlamp, the bike's front does not exude the kind of aggression that would be liked by buyers in this segment. And also some buyers may not like the dual color combination for alloys. Rest apart, it is a very good 150cc bike and CBZ fans will love it!!
