Hero Honda - CBZ eXtreme

A few words on the bike:
The new CBZ Xtreme (one I was tracking for the last 6 weeks) seems to be the gem of a fusion from the makers of its mother version. The way this one performs is stupendous. I got a AMR(blue) color.

It was delivered yesterday. I was lucky to be among the first 3 bikers of this one in Bangalore. Since then I was bugged at a few lights and petrol stations with queries.

Compared to Pulsar this is Godly. I wouldn't go any further on a blog... ;)

The major specifications are as follows:

Displacement: 149.2cc
Maximum Power: 14.2BHP
Gear Box: 5 speed constant mesh
Rim Size: Front 18 x 1.85, alloy wheels
Rear 18 x 2.15, alloy wheels
Fuel Tank Capacity: 12.3Ltrs (Min.)
Reserve: 0.8Ltrs (Useable Reserve)

Length: 2080mm
Width: 765mm
Height: 1145mm
Wheelbase: 1325mm
Ground Clearance: 145mm
Kerb weight: 141 kg (kick)/143 kg (self)

Lights: Fixed with visor and tail... Great innovation
Mileage: 50kmpl (on paper - I'll post the true mileage after I note)
Rear View mirrors: Colored
Pillion seating: Higher than CBZ
Front design: Could have been far far better

I would rate it as follows (out of 10):
Control and Manipulation: 8
Looks: 6
Performance: 9
Comfort: 10
Fuel Consumption: 7.5

In one word - It's a low price Karizma ...

UPDATE December 04, 2006
Consistently getting an average mileage at 53-54 kmpl (after riding at 40-50kmph for better mileage). My bike has run 550km till now.

UPDATE December 11, 2006
In horrible traffic it reduces to 45kmpl. After first service at 681km its become smoother and the disc brake (a bit spongy before) slightly better now

UPDATE January 17, 2007
Just completed 1900KM. The best and worst mileage i got so far in various modes:
Cruise mode (comfortable ride) : best-48 worst-45
Mileage mode (always near 30kmph) : best-53 worst-51
Rash mode (with extensive use of clutch and brakes) : best-46 worst-42
Top speed mode (as fast as possible;most;y close to 110kmph): best-40 worst-32
High speed mode (very fast): best-47 worst-43
