Honda CB Trigger is an India only 150cc motorcycle which succeeds the Unicorn Dazzler. Honda has unveiled the bike today but kept the price for another occasion, sometime in the first week of April. The new 150cc contender has a styling which is inspired from the big boy, the Honda CBR1000R. The naked street bike sports a muscular fuel tank with has a tank extensions with pseudo air intakes. The headlamps are ensconced in bikini fairing and the lower part of the bike is given a black treatment. The CB Trigger comes with a fully digital dashboard with cascading type tachometer, similar to the Yamaha FZ. There is a fuel gauge and a digital clock incorporated into the LCD display. The bike employs a single downtube tubular steel frame and the rear wheels are pivoted by rectangular swing arms. The front suspension is a traditional telescopic unit while the rear makes use of monoshock setup. Both the wheels use disc brakes and comes with Honda’s Combi Braking System (CBS) which reduces the braking distance by a claimed 32%. The powerhouse is the same 149.1cc air cooled engine which is also found in Honda CB Unicorn. The mill puts out 14 bhp and a peak torque of 1.28 kgm. The engine has already earned a reputation as a smooth operator. Honda claims a mileage of 60 kmpl. The Honda CB Trigger will continue to sell alongside the good old Unicorn. With the new bike, Honda is targeting Yamaha’s SZ-R which is stylish yet frugal. Bookings will start in April and deliveries in May.
