Honda unveils new CB Trigger in India


Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India today unveiled the CB Trigger motorcycle, the first in a slew of new products slated to be launched by the manufacturer in 2013. Positioned above the CB Unicorn Dazzler, the bike is pitted to compete with premium 150cc bikes such as the Bajaj Pulsar 150, Yamaha FZ16, Suzuki GS 150R, and the Hero Hunk. The CB Trigger is powered by the same 149cc air-cooled single cylinder as the CB Unicorn, producing 14bhp @ 8500 rpm, with a torque output of 12.5 Nm @ 6500 rpm. Honda claims a true top speed of 103kmph, and a mileage figure of 60 kmpl.

 The USP of the CB Trigger is that it is the first 150cc bike in India to be equipped with Combi-Braking System, which applies the both the front and rear brakes when only the rear brake lever is depressed. This is a very useful system as most Indian riders tend to use the rear brake more than the front, and Honda claims that the system decreases stopping distances by up to 32%. Standard features of CB Trigger include front and rear disc brakes, fully digital speedo console, monoshock rear suspension, and LED taillights. The CB Trigger goes on sale in mid-April, with prices expected to be around the Rs 75,000 mark.
