Old wine in new bottle, its having same engine as Unicorn bit twiked for 1 more BHP, same CBZ xtreme engine, if you are happy with it go for it, many other options are there including the most powerful 150 class bike Apache RTR(its 160 CC).

Its really sad that what are actually mopeds are being sold as performance bikes in India.
A true performance bike should have atleast 30 horses.

today the Motorcycle industry is mostly struggling. If you compare the car scene with the biking scene, the difference is obvious.
The reason is that the bike industry never wanted to take risks. Bajaj and TVS looked promising, but in the end they also backed out.

The rear mudguard with the blinkers and number plate looks awkward and obtrusive as it is jutting out of the rest of the bike.

True..it seems like the tail light console stops a long way before the number plate display. The distance of the plates from the tail lights could have been shortened by a good 3-4".

While Bajaj have the ***** to bring out path breaking designs, others just scamper along. Its a shame Hunk does not bring out anything new. Shame on Hero Honda.

No fuel injection, no new technology, no weight savings.

That way TVS is atleast okay. They are trying out new technology.

try p200 too. there isnt much of a difference in price. many have given the observation that hunk fuel tank looks out of place.

One tiny, weeny bhp extra. Why not go for two or 3 bhp more? Spend little more money on making it fuel efficient. Make others sweat, they just do enough to catch up. (except TVS, Apache and RTR gorgeous beats)

Give us new alloy wheels, twin head lights. look at Aprilia RS125:

Noticed it, looks odd. How will it look in real? Will it fall of after 5000kms?
