Without doubt, the Hero Honda Hunk is a bike exclusively made for today’s young generation. The looks, the style and the design speak volumes for this. The bike suits the macho looking guys to perfection as the bike itself exerts macho looks. The obtruding fuel tank and the impressive tyres make this subliminal effect even stronger.
There is a greater change in the new Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme than its predecessor. You will find the difference in the headlights which sport a completely new look. Apart from that, there are the side-indicators which have been combined in the main headlight body. It is probably the first time that both the rims of the same bike have two different colors. You will find the Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme black front alloy wheel and red rear alloy wheel.
