Honda CB Trigger comes from the house of the Japanese manufacturer Honda. CB Trigger was unveiled just last year in 2013 and has been running successfully till now. This street bike in the 150 cc segment is a continuation of the CB Unicorn Dazzler. It is targeted more towards the younger generation bike lovers.
Honda CB Trigger is built on a single down tube, tubular steel frame and rectangular section swing-arm. The well sculpted stout fuel tank instantly grabs the onlooker’s attention. There is an easy to read speedometer, odometer, trip meter, cascading bar tachometer and a digital clock on the amber lit digital instrument console. The handle bar is light and wide and the palm grips are sturdy yet soft to touch. The Trigger runs on6 spoke black alloy tubeless wheels. A fat exhaust and LED tail lights adorn the sides and rear of this bike. A notable feature of this bike is its very minimal body panels and decals which, in turn, give it an uncluttered and stylish look.
Honda CB Trigger is equipped with an air cooled 149.1 cc single cylinder 4 stroke engine which is mated to a 5 speed smooth gear box. It produces a maximum power of 14 bhp at 8500 rpm and releases torque of 12.5 Nm at 6500 rpm. The bike, with a slight leaning position, offers superb riding comfort. Noise levels are also impressive as the engine does not produce much sound unless the speed is over 90 or it gets beyond 7000 rpm. Honda is promising an approximate mileage of 60 kmpl. It reaches the 0 to 60 kmph mark in just 5.5 seconds and its top speed is 120 kmph.
CB Trigger is also set with many additional innovative features. It comes with both disc and drum brake options. It has responsive telescopic forks at the front and mono shock suspension at the rear. This bike uses a combined braking system that greatly helps in avoiding accidents. It also has a thick air filter which has a replacement time longer than conventional air filters.
The CB Trigger is available in shiny Black, Pearl Siena Red, Meteor Green Metallic and Pearl Sunbeam white colours. Honda CB Trigger Deluxe, Trigger Standard and Trigger CBS are the 3 variants currently available in the market. The Trigger’s pricing starts from Rs 65633 and rises to Rs 74802, approximately, depending on the model chosen. Bajaj’s Pulsar 150 DTS-i, Yamaha’s FZ bikes and TVS’s sporty Apache RTR 160 pose a serious competition to this bike in the country.However the refreshed styling and competitive pricing will surely help Honda to trigger off its sales of the ‘Trigger’.
