With fuel prices rising up everyone is looking for fuel effieciency and with western trends people look for good looks

I think this a blend of fuel efficency and looks.

Good for people dreaming about good looking bikes but do not have deep pockets for handling rising fuel prices

Huge disappointment with new launch.

Hero Honda & Honda are facing the same problem that Bajaj was in a decade back. Bajaj never realised potential for bikes & never modified scooters. Bajaj underwent time consuming process of flop/mediocore launches like colt, caliber,wind, aspire & finally clicked with pulsar.

Hope both Honda companies realise that they need to launch better models and not just with cosmetic, miniature changes.

Waiting for Honda companies to bounce back, but this wait seems to be longer :-(

Duhh.....Bajaj is also offering 125cc Xcd @ a cheaper price with 4 Gears and 9.53 Bhp.....which IMO is better VFM. Also comes with DTS-Si technology which is superior to Honda in terms of FE.

All said and done, looks wise it is indeed a stunner. Who knows maybe HeroHonda stuck a spoke in HOnda's wheel and forbade them from making it a 150cc so that the Hunk has the power advantage.

Some neat features of the stunner.

Tubeless 17 tires F and R and that truly stunning beak fairing.
high rear tail and stepped seat just like the superbikes.

Now all you need to to is to buy a stunner and a CBZ extreme and swap out the engines and walk away with a truly stunning bike.

Thumbs up

The Bike looks pretty decent though. Well about the power plant we'll have to wait & watch. I belive it might be a better performer than the SHINE.

Apart from the name, the bike looks good in the pics imho- fit+finish+paint job+decals+engine placement+overall layout/stance.

Full-frontal pic reminds me of 'Hoodibaba' though.

Somehow when I saw the topic I had a feeling this is going to be 'yet another 150'. Well I was so wrong this was a 125 CBF ?????

What is honda thinking? Atleast they did not call it a CBR.

I thought I would be fuming on this thread instead I see many have vented their frustration already. I wanted to reply some of the best posts.

Doesnt look too bad, though.
How many light years will they take to atleast double the cc figure for us?
Well we waited about 10 years to move from 100 - 150.
Another 10 to move to the 225.
I would say another 10 to move to 300.

On my Knees since the time I saw the topic.

I have some names for their future bikes. Agony, Ecstasy.
My fav is 'Flame' I think they flip a dictionary and just put their finger on the page to see what comes up.

Honda Stunner. Very Original. Inside scoup Their 150 version is going to be "CBF - More Stunning"

Is this from Hero Honda or Honda? Do the two companies share a marketing department - Stunner, Glamour, Amazer...what next - Dementor?
Steer, 15cc would give you that RAW power advantage, dont forget that.

For such threads the deadhorse icon should be excluded from the 2 smiley rule.

Agree. Saw this bike for the first time last Saturday at my hometown in Kerala. Black color. It did look good. Infact, since I never knew that Honda had released such a bike, I went all around it and look-wise, it sure was a stunner.

Thought it would be a 150-cc or more bike, but a quick look at their website proved it wrong.

The seating position geometry is excellent. It offers sporty riding position but the pickup is average. I rode the bike for 10 min testride & didnot feel any kind of backpain which i got test riding apache as i am 180cm.
