Question HH Hunk the best 150?

Hi guys, Just read the ACI review of Hunk Vs Pulsar 150. ACI crowns the hunk as the new 150 champion. Can anyone who has Unicorn and Hunk tell me how is Hunk superior to Pulsar while Unicorn is not?

I own a 2-year old Pulsar 150 DTSi and wanted to go in for a Unicorn in the next 3-4 months, but this review has confused me a lot.

Looking forward to your response guys. Thanks in advance!!!

The state of tune of the engine is different in both the Unicorn & the Hunk/Extreme. So there could be a possibility that the Hunk is superior to the Pulsar while Unicorn is not. Also note that chassis is also different.

Dont go as per any mag reviews
These bikes are not meant for racing.
The difference is so minute that they seldom makes any difference on road.

Hunk i personally dont like the looks.
But there are certain features of Hunk if Added to CBZ Xtreme could have made CBZX more attractive to my eyes.

If you are thinking of buying hunk.
i would rate it as comfortable bike for long ride.

I swear! Dont go by the bike reviews...

Go out test drive the bikes.. if need be ten times... then decide which one you like and want to buy!

Magazine verdicts don always tell the truth. However, Hunk is a more modern (read- sticker and panel work) bike than any of the competition. It could be better.

I havent seen even one Hunk on the roads. The sales, in kerala, are too low!

I have seen a black one in the parking lot of our office. Didn't look too good to my eyes. Somehow had a feeling that its overdone. But if its the best as per ACI, I guess I can ignore the looks

I dont think the Hunk is the best 150cc, bike, its basically a CBZ with a new look IMO. The best 150cc is the Unicorn.

However the most desirable and VFM bike is the Pulsar with Digital Speedo, LED(Light Emitting Diode) Tail Lamps, etc.

Its not the 'CBZ'. Engine is different, and is the Uni engine with a different state of tune.

Ita a 'CBZ Xtreme' () with a new look!

Mate go for a unicorn without any doubts. Hunk is the same engine,but the engine is a little bit harsh than the unicorn. Dont follow the mags who will say anything for the advertising revenues.

Go for the Unicorn if you want refinement and reliability. You will never regret your decision.
