The CB Trigger is a premium 150cc bike from Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India. The bike is pitted to compete with other premium 150cc bikes such as the Yamaha FZ16, Suzuki GS 150R, and the Hero Hunk. It is powered by the same air-cooled 150cc single cylinder engine as the CB Unicorn. The bike can achieve a true top speed of 103kmph.
This bike is the first 150cc bike in India to be equipped with Combi-Braking System, which applies both the front and rear brakes when only the rear brake lever is depressed. Standard features include front and rear disc brakes, fully digital speedo console, monoshock rear suspension, and LED taillights.
Mileage, Price & Colours
The bike delivers an average mileage of 60 kmpl (manufacturer claimed). It is priced at Rs 65,893 (ex-showroom, Delhi), and is available in Black, Meteor Green Metallic, and Pearl Siena Red colours.
Design and Ergonomics
The bike is targeted at a younger generation of buyers, and hence incorporates trendy styling elements in its design. The bike offers the rider an upright riding position which minimises stress applied on the lower back and wrists, thereby improving comfort while riding for extended durations.
Engine and Gearbox
The Trigger is powered by a 149cc engine that produces 14 bhp @ 8500 rpm and 12.5 Nm of torque @ 6500 rpm, and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The bike is equipped with telescopic front forks and a mono-shock at the rear. The mono-shock reduces overall weight, whilst offering the same comfort as twin shock-absorbers.
The CB Trigger employs a 240mm disc brake at the front, and an optional 220mm disc brake at the rear. Also provided as an option is the Combi-Brake System (CBS), where both brakes are actuated even if only the rear brake is applied. Using both brakes simultaneously shortens the distance required to come to a halt considerably, when compared to using either brake individually. 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%.
Who should buy one?
The Honda CB Trigger is meant for those whose commute exceeds 50 kms a day, and includes occasional highway riding.
