Didnít go through the whole thread but did read the last few replies and all this makes me wonder what you guys really want? I mean I can understand it is a bit ugly but it is going to be the fastest in the 150cc category! And you guys think this is bad??? Well not gonna say any more regarding this since for most of you look matters more then the performance! Those who are interested check these links outÖ

It would be great if you could share the source with us. If its really the case, then I dont think superbikes would remain pipe dreams for us Indians.

Suzuki dealer over here in Indore is displaying a Hayabusa along with some moped that Suzuki launched recently. Why tease when u cant fulfill??

I do not have the source with me but this was on CNBC & NDTV a week back, it was quite a news that day as lot of Car Manufacturers are opposing this, but what the govt. is doing now is it is slashing the import duty by nearly 70%, it still remains at 50% though which is still very high if you compare it with any country. I just hope all this comes true !!!!! I am keeping my fingers crossed....

***.. they should have sticked with the earlier design (the first cbz desin) would have added more features to get back into competition.

Super CBX TV Ad : What an overstatement.

" You can't catch what you can't see ?? "

They make such ads and launch a 150 cc bike,

Well the bike lives up to it's lame name, Super CBZ

This is insulting, do Hero Honda think the Indian consumer is such a dud, that by seeing a overstated ad and some changes in looks will consider that bike to be that great ?

Even the Dodge would not have come up with such an ad for the tomahawk .

As i said in my previous post, I hope it looks better on road. They say that its a very revvy bike, but I think only revs dont helping in selling the bike. I dont understand how such bikes get past the marketing departments.

Hero Honda has pulled a total bummer. 150cc ?? well, although I wasn't expecting a lot (with a name like 'Super CBZ' who the heck will), but HH have really let me down. My verdict: Unless it is really competetively priced i.e. dirt cheap, look away !!!

Hey guys.
The CBZ Xteme website - www.cbzxtreme.com is now with pictures of the bike,and bike is on display in showrooms..I won't be going..am happy with my Karizma..Xtreme is a waste of time and money..how could they even think of launching such a bike just after Bajaj gave an excellent new feature packed 180cc Pulsar bike..
