Spec Sheet Analysis


149cc air-cooled single cylinder, 5-speed gearbox

149cc air-cooled single cylinder, 5-speed gearbox 149.1cc air-cooled single cylinder, 5-speed gearbox 149.2cc air-cooled single cylinder, 5-speed gearbox All bikes have more or less the same capacity and architechture, but they differ greatly in character. We've ridden all the bikes here bar the FZ-Fi. If the old FZ's engine refinement is anything to go by, the new V2.0's powertrain should have definitely taken it up a notch further. The Xtreme has the smoothest engine of the three bikes we've ridden. 



Carburator Carburator Carburator The FZ-Fi is the only bike amongst the lot to come equipped with fuel-injection. The advantages are numerous - instant start in all temperatures and altitudes, improved throttle response, better engine refinement, and higher mileage too


12.9 bhp @ 8000 rpm

14.9 bhp @ 9000 rpm 14 bhp @ 8500 rpm 14.2 bhp @ 8500 rpm Despite gaining fuel injection, the FZ-Fi loses nearly 1 bhp of power The Pulsar may be the most powerful of the lot, but maximum power comes in at 500 rpm over the Trigger and Xtreme, and a full 1000 rpm over the FZ. Performance should be similar between all bikes, as they are separated only by a smal margin.

Two bikes come with a monoshock, whereas the other two get a gas-charged conventional set-up for the rear end. Monoshock reduces unsprung mass, reducing weight and improving the dynamic characteristics, where are the gas-charged shocks offer good ride quality.

Tackling bad roads will be best on the CB Trigger, given its high ground clearance, whereas the Xtreme is more likely to hit its underbelly on large speed breakers and potholes

While the FZ, Trigger and Xtreme have only a 12 litre fuel tank, the Pulsar comes with a large 15 litre capacity, giving it greater range for every tankful.  



76,250 67,145 65,718 66,275 Although the FZ-Fi is the most expensive, it is justified as it comes with fuel-injection. The other three bikes are closely priced, so deciding between them is purely based on their performance.
