Despite all the competition, all it took the CBR 250R to gain an upper hand was a new paint scheme and an LED headlight. Well, there’s more beneath the surface, which we all know but miss out while discussing motorcycles on the social media.
The most recent updates in the 150 cc segment include the revised Pulsar 150 Twin disc from Bajaj and the new bike from Honda, the X-Blade. Both bikes fall within a Rs 78,000 (ex-showroom) price tag and both of them boasts about being the best 150 cc motorcycle in the market. Which one is better and why let’s take a look.
We have heard the cries of thousands of riders who plead night and day for Honda CBR 250RR to come to India. We don’t know if they launch it or not but the bike would retail at close to Rs 3 lakh ex-showroom. It makes around 38 HP and a pitiful 23 NM of torque. Compare it to the competition and you realize where the bike actually stands.
We don’t want a lot from life, simple things make us happy. For example, a motorcycle which looks good, performs well, returns good mileage and carries a low price tag is all that we as riders spend our lives seeking. In that spirit, today we are talking about two motorcycles named Pulsar 200RS and Honda CBR 250R both of which come to mind when seeking a fully faired budget sports tourer.
Here we are again, in the aftermath of Auto Expo searching for any survivors. All those motorcycles which managed to maintained headlines throughout the Auto Expo deserve a special mention. Among these motorcycles is Honda X-Blade, which made news because of its radical style and design. The X Blade is placed in Honda’s lineup near the same price point as Honda CB hornet, so let’s compare both of them and see which one is slightly better than the other ;)
All new Honda Grazia has got really cool and astonishing looks. The very first look of the scooter somehow reminds us of Honda Dio from the front and the rear end. Actually the whole scooter looks like Honda Activa has worked out, took heavy diet and transformed. Beautiful fine lines and bulky yet aerodynamic front of Grazia mesmerizes the soul.
Honda launched the Grazia earlier this week, and man it looks amazing and has great features compared to its family member the Activa just at an increase in price of Rupees 400. Apart from the wheelie that happened during the launch, the launch and the motorcycle turned out to be spectacular. So at marginally increased price let us find out if the Grazia makes a better option than the Activa 125.
Honda had decided to work upon different concept. So what if the Navi’s concept was not much impressive, no issues with that we’ll bring something new within the same segment, within the same technology (Honda’s perspective). And thus the all new Honda Cliq has got introduced to the market, for the riders. Let’s take the new scooter for a spin and find out if this concept would work for Honda or the company has to bear the same fate as in the case of Navi.
Honda is a brand that is known to produce most of the scooters sold in India. Ever since the Acitva was launched, there has literally been no other scooter to dethrone the king from the segment. After the Activa comes to the Dio, the first version of the Dio wasn't a huge success, but the version that followed it looked funky, stylish, sporty and what not.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) introduced yet another scooter in their stable, adding to their already large fleet of scooters in the Indian market. The newly launched scooter looks to be a combination of the Honda Dio, Navi and their best selling Activa. Here is an overview of the new Honda Cliq in terms of looks, design, engine and equipment.
