I just wanted to know this, one of my friend claims that Honda uses better manufacturing process with very strict tolerance levels compared to the HH. Although the engine designs are the same they differ by terms of built quality. Is this true ??

Unicorn for long drives, FE, Pillion, refinement. Its can be very good and less stressful.
Do you mean, in comparison the FZ or just in general?

REPLY:well the unicorn and cbz-Xtreme differ with Carburetor changes with different type of JET(make reverse screwed) and setting, the cam-shaft is different with xtremes being more power-Oriented, the xtreme's GearBox is a little less shorter than uni's. All in all they are two different machine to me.

well as for the answer to this i personally agree with this as Honda is very kanjoos they give us nothing more than just required i mean they refine their parts to the max leaving very less room for any kind of improvisation and/or mods, well hence for them the very scrict norms of Quality control is some thing they cant just let loose even a bit.

@rranjith_kum- Dont know man but Honda being Honda wouldnt want to get bad repute even if its HH

@rider60: Yes they are very different machines, thats what I said too i.e. they have the same engine block with different set of tune which includes various changes but that doesnt mean they have different engines

As of now the best bike according to me would be the RTR FI RD. Excellent value for money and a great bike
It had clocked more than 1 lac kms. God knows the exact odo figures because half of the times, the bike's speedo went kaput.

I had written about it on this thread :-

I meant with respect to Unicorn and CBZ !!
I dont think FZ will suit the needs of the thread starter !! Of course I do think Unicorn is refined more than FZ 16, but I wouldn't trade my bike for a Unicorn

Not really Techno . Engine block is also somewhat externally different, different , can't say of the internals ( haven't got a chance to do an autopsy ! ). The Hunk/CBZ-X has the oil filler behind the gearbox , the Unicorn has the oil filler ahead of the crank . Notice that even the alloy wheels are different , the Unicorn has 6-spoke ones while the HH Hunk/CBZ-X has 5 spoker ones. Something tells me they ( H and HH ) have different OEM component vendors , am told this was one point of friction between the two.

Simply go for the Unicorn , it is a proven bike for the last 5 year. You can try the Suzuki GS150 but I am not sure about its performance & A.S.S.
