Appearance

In terms of style and designing, the CB Trigger is the superior version of the CB Dazzler. It features a new headlight and visor, imparting it an aggressive look. It is quite simple at its front with black coloured six-spoke alloy wheels and front fender. Its new kick lever and fattier silencer complement the all black bike. Its long seat and edgy rear cowl looks great with its up-swept muffler. It has got a fully digital instrument console which imparts it a premium bike look. CB Trigger comes with a new wider rear tyre and a full chain case. On the other hand, the Hero CBZ Xtreme draws attention with its digital plus analogue instrument cluster, newly designed alloy wheels, LED tail lamp, rear shock absorbers, exhaust heat shield, new graphics for the fairing and much more. It has got a new anti-drag fuel tank along with a shutter for the ignition key.

 

Performance

The Honda CB Trigger is powered by a 150cc engine that produces a maximum power of 13.81 bhp at 8500 rpm and peak torque of 12.5 Nm at 6500 rpm. It is coupled with a five-speed manual gearbox with one gear down and four gears up-shift pattern. Despite claiming the best power to weight ratio in its class, the CB Trigger is a bit slow on performance; it takes around 6 seconds to reach 0-60km/hr. While Honda claims fuel efficiency of around 60km/ltr, it gives around 50km/ltr in real life conditions. On the other hand, Hero CBZ Xtreme is powered by a 149.2cc 4 stroke air cooled engine which generates a maximum power output of 14.2 bhp at 8500 rpm and maximum torque of 12.8 Nm at 6500 rpm. It is a powerful package of engine refinement, slick-shifting smooth gearbox, top-of-the-class vibration isolation, and low engine noise and quality components.
