I'm thinking , could this be a Suzuki FXR based machine ? The gap at the side seems to give a peek-a-boo of what looks like a frame . The thin tyres look right for a 150 , though the FXR has a monoshock .
It ain't a Yamaha , they won't go dual-shock on a premium bike after R-15 and FZ , it could be a Honda or Hero Honda whose riders wear blue overalls as someone observed, but I'm thinking those tyres look rather thin to be a big Honda or new Karizma . Plus , full fairings on an air-cooled motor seem unlikely and big H seems to hold any development on bigger bikes with Hero .

The answer is in my post itself. The state of tune of the engine block is different in Unicorn and Xtreme. Xtreme (also hunk) has been tuned for more grunt and power which affected the mileage.

We are in a state of mind where we have accepted what we are offered (or should i just say we are satisfied with what we ride).
Honda although with Hero has been in existence for around 20 years now. Have they never felt the need of a decent multi cylindered motor cycle which can cruise at 100mph has good dynamic capabilities? Feels very very ignored to me. But they are selling. Good for them. Not for me.

So point is, i have no expectations from them at all, even with the new Karizma.
Lets see what high tech graphic computers they are going to use for those stickers this time around?

CBZ was launched somewhere 1998-99 IIRC.What this 2007 CBZ got except from Sticker work and some minor parts changes?

That fairing looks kinda weird! Or is it just the angle? Also the red color on the rear shock springs!!!

19 bhp power with 140 true speed. You can read the PGM-FI on the fairing. The rear panels and grab rails are picked from CBZ extreme. Full fairing indicates internal cooling system.

The fairing looks kinda weird. Lets hope it looks cool in real. And, if the features are true, it is definitely gonna cost a bomb; around 1 lakh easily.

Yeah true the color is also out of sorts. The After market full fairings look much much better. But still have to look at different angles or the real time on road.

They have been doing around in Orkut with these pics. It is quite well possible with PGM-FI.

Also, seems the ad for this bike has been shot with Hritik and Bhuvan.

Doesn't the fairing seem to interfere with the gear lever?

Also, I read elsewhere that a 180cc 16bhp version of the ZMA will be introduced.

the fairing looks totally out of place, like the pearl white color though.
i really hope it comes out with those 19bhp figures, will be a killer of a touring vehicle.
