I think it will easily beat its competitors - TVS flame, Bajaj Discover, Yamaha Gladiator and Glamour.
Looks better,is probably built to high quality standards

Anyways- after some stupid launches by Honda (trying to match HH?), this seems like a welcome change, IMHO.
+1, could not agree anymore. This is cearly targeted at college going youth, who wants style and easy on pocket. The bike really looks a stunner. The quality of the bike really good.

That is truly stunning - 15cc more!

Is this from Hero Honda or Honda? Do the two companies share a marketing department - Stunner, Glamour, Amazer...what next - Dementor?

Its amazing what kind of names these marketing people come up with. .They all look the same, all of them from 99cc to 124.6cc to 149.2 cc to whatever.Anyways, I fail to understand why these companies dont take notice of the fact that there is a geniune rise in the import of superbikes.Agreed every one cannot afford one and the volume may not do justice to start importing these bikes legally just yet.But there is a huge gap between 125cc bikes and big 1L superbikes.They could look at 250cc ,350cc ,400cc may be even 600cc.If nothing else atleast these companies should do some market survey to undrstand the demand.

I like the looks of this machine... oops.. what did i say?! I like the way the front fairing flows into the tank and also that floating rear panel. A 150cc or bigger mill wouldn't feel out of place in this package with a lil tweaks here and there.

So what if it's a 125cc commuter bike... let the commuters commute in style.

The next bike would be called the STUD...

Honda CBF Stunner

125CC, 11Bhp
Kerb Weight: 129 Kg
Wheelbase: 1271mm
Fuel Tank Capacity: 10 Litres

Tubeless tryes
Front 80/100-17 and Rear: 100/90-77
Front Brakes: 240mm Disc or 130mm Drum
Rear Brake: 130mm drum

Starting system: Kick/Electric

5 speed transmission
Trip meter

For whom the Bike is developed and on sale? Not for performance enthusiasts like me and you. This Bike is for the innumerable college going crowd who would like their first motorcycle to be stylish, high quality, fuel efficient and affordable off the showrooms. This also takes care of the fear the parents have when giving their kids the first bike, a 125CC wont break the bank and wont be too fast - and now, after the release of the Stunner, wont be an unassuming pathetic anorexic looking metal rod frame draped in skimpy plastic and gory graphics.
This has been taken from XBHP.COM and Mr. Sunny Gajjar the main man at the XBHP.COM was at the launch

1)

@ normally_crazy:
Thanks for putting up this information


2)

IMO, the bike is more show than go. Although the looks are subjective and opinions differ from person to person, the fairing is a bit too big for the bike specially next to engine.
A faster product will be more useful.

Why can't they offer both 125 and 150 cc and let the customer decide. Duh!

Guys,

Are you not happy with the name ? After all it was meant to be a STUNNER - it has stunned us into shock and silence and indignation.
