Default cbz extreme

hey guys
jus checked out the new cbz xtreme very closely yesterday.

the rear of the bike is amazing as in the indicator lights which gel gracefully with the brakelight.

the muffler is also quite resembling to the karizma. the seats and the side fenders, evrything are in place, but i kinda did not like the front end of the bike, its quite small for the bike as in the whole appeal of the cbz is lost

the head lamp has been reduced in size, and some indicator light has been added above. overall its a good buy but something cud be done to improve the front end

IMHO, cbz extreme is the 2nd best product out there after the P150 DTSi...
Bajaj P150 DTSi> HH CBZ extreme> Honda Unicorn> TVS apache> HH acheiver

In the extreme, looks are macho... But headlamp spoils the party completly... Also, the tail lamps are good, though, the rear panel seems doesnt look that good, kinda like 'inspired' by the Apache...

those front indicators cond go with the overall design. thel seem like afretthoughts. somebody at hh must have noticed the lack of front indicators in the final stages and decided to slap on the pair from the bajaj challenger.

Man hh achiever is way much better than the apache Though cbz extreme is nothing but the same engine of unicorn which was beefed up for the achiever and now with a liltle more of torque anyways The New Pulsar I must say its too good to be true the speedo is all that i need

Being an owner of hh achiever i still love its smoothness and ride control but the new pulsar 150 is still good for its brutality and the toughness.

CBZ,Achiever both the bike missing a unique character because both of them using same engine as Unicorn. Engine is the heart of a bike not design. Now in the market 3 bikes with same engine cbz-unicorn-achiver. Old cbz was unique because it is using different engine from others with sliding type carbulator. Apache and pulsar are atleast unique in terms of their engine.
