The CBZ X-Treme from the house of Hero Honda is one bike that has given them a lot to look up to. Since they launched it for the first time, the bike has seen some minor changes in its physical aspects. There are lots of new features that would take one by storm. Moreover, the bike is more comfortable than before.
The changes that are made in the bike have nothing to do with the technical features. The bike is still powered by the similar engine. The bike is manufactured with an air cooled engine, with a displacement of 149.2cc and comes with 5 gears. The bike can give a high power of 14.2 Bhp at 8500 rpm and can generate a high torque of 12.8 Nm. at 6500 rpm.
The powerful bike that falls in the commuter segment can be driven at a top speed of 115 kmph. The brand, from which it has made its way in the market, is a matter of great belief. The fuel tank is a good one with 12.1 liters of capacity. The tubeless tyres reduce the possibility of a puncture very considerably, giving you freedom to ride through difficult terrains.
The alloy wheels are a beauty and give a facelift to the bike. Among the factors that add beauty to the bike is the colors that are available. Flaming Orange, Sports Red, Digital Silver, Max Brown Metallic and Panther Black Metallic are the colors the Hero Honda CBZ X-Treme comes in.
The length, width and height of the bike are 2080 mm, 765 mm and 1145 mm respectively. The bike has a ground clearance of 145 mm. The wheelbase of the Hero Honda CBZ X-Treme is 1325 mm while the wheel size comes in 80/100 18 – 100/90 18 mm. The 12V halogen bulb is powerful enough even to blind your eyes when you look at it at daytime too.
The features of the Hero Honda CBZ X-Treme include a digital fuel gauge and a speedometer. The tachometer comes in the analogue format. The company has given a warranty of three years or 40,000 kms from the date of purchase, whichever is earlier.
Some other features include, the passenger footrest, the pass-light and low fuel indicator. However, a couple of important features like the low oil indicator and the low battery indicator are not available for the bike. Even the high oil temperature indicator and chocked air filter indicators are missing.
The telescopic hydraulic type suspension works well for the front wheel and the rectangular swing arm for the back, work in tandem to give a smooth ride to the rider. The 240 mm front disc brake and the 220 mm rear disc brakes provide a great safety measure. The step-up seat makes the driving more comfortable.
There is hardly any doubt that the Hero Honda CBZ X-Treme is one of the best bikes from the clan of Hero Honda. All in all, it is one of the best bikes in the commuter segment from Hero Honda.
